The EOS system provides low dose, full body, stereo-radiographic images of your patient in a functional position. The EOS system is designed around a vertically traveling arm supporting two image acquisition systems mounted at right angles. Each acquisition system is composed of an X-ray tube and a linear detector.
This unique biplanar design and linear, vertical scanning technique acquires frontal and lateral images of your patient simultaneously in either a standing or seated position with the EOS Radiolucent Chair.
- Comprehend compensation mechanisms between the spine, hip and knee thanks to full body, weight-bearing images
- Calculate precise 2D and 3D measurements, free from magnification and stitching bias
- Improved diagnostics due to high image quality and over 65,000 grey levels for excellent contrast
- Patient’s radiation dose decreased by 50% compared to a DR system1and 85% compared to a CR system2
- Substitution of specific CT exams with an EOS exam to reduce the patient’s radiation dose by 95%3
- Micro Dose protocol for a full spine exam (frontal and lateral) at a dose that’s equivalent to only a week’s worth of natural radiation4
- Capture frontal and lateral, full body images in less than 20 seconds for adults and 15 seconds for children
- Complete an exam in under 4 minutes, even for complex spine or full body1
- Maximize patient throughput with up to 120 complex exams per day9
- Facilitate the process to image disabled patients with the EOS Radiolucent Chair
