EOSedge is a combination of X-ray detection, low-dose radiation and high-resolution imaging in the delivery of musculoskeletal imaging exams. It includes EOS Imaging’s Flex Dose technology for modulating radiation dose along the patient’s body, along with high-resolution photon counting detection for optimal image quality.
The Paris-based company’s imaging system is also designed to improve patient comfort with an open cabin that includes a motorized, enlarged patient platform for easy access and quicker positioning. EOSedge offers local and full body, weight-bearing, low-dose biplanar exams of adult and pediatric patients.
EOS Imaging said the launch will help strengthen its portfolio of imaging products. EOSedge has already won regulatory approval in the launch locations and is currently awaiting a verdict on FDA 510(k) approval. The company plans to unveil the system at the Radiological Society of North America 2019 annual meeting on Dec. 1.
“We engineered EOSedge to equip both radiologists and orthopedic surgeons with a best-in-class imaging system that combines the latest innovations to provide high-quality diagnostic capabilities of orthopedic conditions at a low dose,” EOS Imaging CEO Mike Lobinsky said in a news release. “Images and data obtained with EOSedge will further fuel our Advanced Orthopedic Solutions, while addressing a broad range of imaging and orthopedic surgery challenges. This breakthrough in orthopedic imaging is the result of a multi-year development effort by our outstanding inter-disciplinary team. Unveiling EOSedge at RSNA, the largest global imaging convention, will mark another pivotal step in realizing our strategic vision to deliver the best end-to-end solutions in orthopedic care.”
“We have been using the first-generation EOS system since 2011, and this unique orthopedic imaging system has allowed us to develop our practice, serving our referring clinicians with better, more informed exams,” added Imagerie Medicale du Parc and Imagerie Medical du Crequi musculoskeletal radiologist Dr. Olivier Fantino. “EOSedge is a leap forward in image quality, both in terms of spatial resolution and image contrast, all with a low radiation dose. Our months of utilization in routine have also proven enhanced patient comfort, facilitated system operation and a strong reduction of exam time. We are thrilled with our experience of EOSedge and expect it to open up new fields of application use in musculoskeletal imaging.”
