child_hospitalEOS imaging, a 2D/3D orthopedic medical imaging firm, recently announced that another of country’s leading hospitals for pediatric orthopedics has endorsed the company’s radiation dose reduction technology for orthopedic pediatric imaging.

The undisclosed Boston-based, top-ranked hospital for pediatric orthopedics marks the company’s second installation in the city.

Meanwhile, findings from Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego demonstrated a 50-fold dose reduction in radiation exposure for scoliosis patients imaged using EOS’ Microdose feature. Data were presented by Peter Newton, the hospital’s chief of the division of Orthopedics and Scoliosis during the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America annual meeting held in Atlanta.

“The installation of EOS in the highest ranking pediatric hospital for orthopedics in the US marks the 13th of the top 20 children’s hospitals in the US to adopt EOS low dose 2D/3D imaging,” said Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging. “This strong adoption momentum by key institutions, and data such as that presented by Rady Children’s at the POSNA meeting on ultimate dose reduction, are clearly establishing EOS as the gold standard in orthopedic pediatric imaging.”

The EOS system provides full-body stereo-radiographic images of patients in functional positions, in both 2D and 3D. EOS exams require a radiation dose 50 percent to 85 percent less than digital radiology and 95 percent less than basic CT scans, as well as related software solutions.
