EOS imaging has launched a new online service offering that allows hospitals to outsource 3D modelling from EOS stereo-radiographic images. The 3D models will be generated at EOS’ Canadian subsidiary in Montreal. These capabilities will be available to healthcare professionals with access to EOS images worldwide.
The 3D models and associated, automatically computed clinical data will be available for spine, hip and knee for aid in therapeutic decision, surgery planning and control. EOS 3D Service will also provide 3D modelling of the ribcage for research purposes as well as for the design of scoliosis braces.
EOS has already begun to offer this new service and a first agreement has been signed with the Setting Scoliosis Straight Foundation (SSSF), a not-for-profit foundation that supports the Harms Study Group in understanding and developing treatments of spinal deformities in children and adolescents. The Harms Study Group (HSG), formed in 1995, is a collaborative cohort of worldwide distinguished surgeons who perform comprehensive, multicentre research studies and share the results to advance the techniques of spinal deformity correction. EOS 3D Service to SSSF allows the Harms Study Group surgeons access to 3D data for their patients undergoing scoliosis surgery.
“EOS’ modelling capabilities fit seamlessly into our strategic plan to research and identify new spinal deformity treatment techniques and we could not be more pleased to partner with the company as the first users of the EOS 3D Service,” said Michelle Marks, executive director of the SSSF.
Marie Meynadier, chief executive officer of EOS imaging, said, “EOS 3D Service affords surgeons and bracing professionals currently without direct access to our sterEOS workstation to benefit from the powerhouse of our patient 3D models and data. We are happy to extend this service to all of our customers and to their referrals, adding further value to the suite of software and tools based on the EOS platform.”
