Summary: New 3D modeling of the spine and lower limb automatically calculates over 100 clinical parameters relevant to diagnosis and surgical planning.
20, 2013 -The new sterEOS 1.5 provides 3D modeling of the
spine and lower limb based on scans taken with the EOS System, and
automatically calculates over 100 clinical parameters relevant to diagnosis and
surgical planning. The new version offers new capabilities to measure hip
implant component position for surgery control and revision. Other key features
include 3D modeling of severe scoliosis (Cobb angle above 50°). It will be
made available to existing EOS customers as a software upgrade and will be included
in all new system sales.
EOS is a full body, low-dose 3D imaging system, that
may deliver a radiation dose nine times lower than that of computed radiography
(CT) x-ray1 and 20 times lower than basic CT scans2.
Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said, “The introduction of hip arthroplasty
post-operative 3D imaging to the EOS System answers growing challenges in
orthopedic surgery post-op evaluation. It also provides the first
weight-bearing 3D solution to enhance the understanding and, ultimately,
treatment of total hip replacement complications such as dislocations and wear.
Ongoing research supports the unique value of EOS in understanding the relation
between implant position, pelvic mobility and patient function, therefore
improving treatment and patient outcomes in joint arthroplasty.”
sterEOS 1.5 has received 510(k) clearance from the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will be highlighted along with the
full EOS Imaging System at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS)
Annual Meeting, March 19-23 in Chicago, IL.
