The Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC), Los Angeles, USA, has installed the EOS imaging system (EOS). This makes it the first standalone ambulatory care provider with this technology in the region.
“Our entire organisation is committed to delivering the best orthopaedic care to children so they can
go on to lead healthy, active lives,” says OIC medical director Mauricio Silva.
“With this technology now on site, patients and their families will have peace of mind knowing they have access to an imaging system that offers safe, low-dose and highly accurate exams,” says Anthony A Scaduto, president and chief executive officer of OIC. “As many of these children suffer from complex conditions that often require frequent imaging exams, we are glad they will not need to add the fear of radiation exposure to their already complex concerns.”
The EOS system is the first imaging solution able to simultaneously create a 2D and 3D image of the skeleton in a natural standing position with a very low radiation dose. Specifically adapted to the needs of orthopaedic surgeons and radiologists, the EOS 2D/3D exam is designed to allow a better accuracy of diagnosis, surgical planning, and monitoring of bone and joint diseases.
