EOS Imaging System
Introducing the first EOS Imaging System in Queensland.
The EOS Imaging System is an ultra low-dose 2D-3D imaging system that delivers high quality, detailed images of patients in natural standing positions. The ability to create personalised 3D bone modelling of the patients in a weight-bearing position provides a more accurate view of the interaction between joints, lower limbs, the spine and the rest of the musculoskeletal system.
For the first time radiologists and orthopaedics have a life size, naturally weight-bearing 3D image from all angles. This technology will enable clinicians to better evaluate a patients postural abnormality, make a more informed diagnosis, and plan a more effective course of treatment. This is imperative for patients suffering from bone and joint disorders, or spinal deformities such as scoliosis.
EOS allows for frontal and lateral images of the patient to be carried out simultaneously, resulting in a very quick and accurate scan time of just 5-20 seconds, top to toe.
Designed by a Nobel Prize winning physicist, a team of biomedical engineers, orthopaedic surgeons and radiologists, EOS represents the first true breakthrough solution for orthopaedic imaging.
Is it safe?
This low dose imaging system delivers radiation 9 times less than standard X-ray, and 20 times less than computed tomography (CT). This is beneficial for patients who require frequent imaging.
Preparation for EOS
Available at the Southport Gold Coast Surgery Centre.
