EOS Imaging said today it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for its spineEOS 3D planning software for spinal surgery based on EOS bi-planar imaging.
The spineEOS 3D planning sotware is designed to allow surgeons to use 3D-imaging to create optimized treatment plans for improved sagittal alignment for pediatric patients with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis, and adults with degenerative or deformative spine conditions.
“We are looking forward to highlighting our product offering at AAOS and share the value in the orthopaedic space of our EOS imaging platform and new EOSapps. These online 3D surgical planning solutions are a big step towards planning patient-specific procedures in 3D that are cost effective, and provide our company the exciting opportunity to offer full image-based services along key orthopedic care pathways,” CEO Marie Meynadier said in a press release.
The company’s newly released software provides treatment stimulation based on reference values and taking into account patient vertebrae shape and position in 3D. The company said the system is being used in clinical studies ongoing in San Diego, Calif. and Paris, France.
In December, EOS Imaging reported results from a a clinical study examining the association of sagittal balance measurements and risk of falling in elderly patients reported a correlation between the falling risk and postural balance measured using its sterEOS workstation.
In the 122-patient study, individuals received an EOS exam postural alignment parameters were measured with the sterEOS workstation postural analysis software. Results showed that specific parameters are associated with the risk of falling and can be used to improve individual falling-risk assessments.
