EOS imaging has announced the installation of its EOS system at the University Hospital Center of Grenoble Alps (CHUGA), a state-of-the-art hospital facility for osteoarticular surgery in children and adults. CHUGA is the 20th university hospital centre to acquire an EOS system, and the new system will be dedicated to the centre’s clinic as well as to clinical research activities.
With more than 2,100 beds, CHUGA employs nearly 8,000 professionals, including 1,700 doctors. It has an advanced technical platform and provides highly specialised care. The centre’s teams are recognised for their excellence in orthopaedic surgery, particularly in the field of advanced surgical techniques assisted by navigation or robotics.
The new EOS system will be located in the paediatric radiology department within the paediatric section of the hospital. It will be used in the care of both paediatric and adult patients through a collaboration with two adult orthopaedic services located in the North and South Poles of CHUGA.
“The EOS system will allow us to further develop the clinical care of our paediatric patients through imaging at low radiation dose. It will also significantly accelerate our collaborative research programs with EOS on the orthopaedic treatment of scoliosis with braces,” comments Aurélien Courvoisier, paediatric orthopaedic surgeon at CHUGA (Grenoble, France).
“We are very pleased to serve the Grenoble Hospital Center for clinical and research applications,” comments Marie Meynadier, chief executive officer of EOS imaging. “The patient has always been our main concern as we work to spread low-dose, 2D/3D imaging capabilities. EOS has changed the care of osteoarticular pathologies and has become a standard thanks to lower radiation, higher accuracy, and 3D imaging of the full body, all of them valuable in choosing the most effective treatments, preparing surgical intervention, as well as in post-operative follow-up. On the research side, we hope to open new perspectives on the treatment of spinal deformities with braces, and will also pursue collaborative programs on the integration of the EOS examination data in the operating room.”
