EOS Imaging touts digital x-ray research

Orthopedic digital imaging firm EOS Imaging is pointing to research studies utilizing its EOS 2D/3D imaging system in the November issues of the American Journal of Roentgenology and Skeletal Radiology.

The studies highlight the clinical advantages of the system in diagnosis and treatment planning for lower limb and hindfoot orthopedic care, according to the vendor. Both studies were performed by radiologists at Balgrist University Hospital in Zurich, Switzerland.

The first study showed that femoral and tibial torsion measurements taken with EOS were comparable to those obtained with CT scans; the second demonstrated that 3D hindfoot alignment measurements from EOS were more precise than standard x-ray measurements, and suggested that 3D scanning may help meet the clinical challenges of accurately assessing and treating hindfoot abnormalities, EOS said.
