EOS Imaging SA Announces Results of Study into Lower Limb Imaging with EOS System

Thursday, 16 May 2013 02:30am EDT 

EOS Imaging SA announced the results of a study into lower limb imaging using the EOS system. The study, titled, “EOS Low-dose Biplanar Radiography: The New Gold Standard in Radiographic Assessment of Lower Limb Lengths?” was presented by orthopaedic surgeon Unni G. Narayanan, MD, of The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. It evaluated imaging of a phantom limb in a standardized position with three different modalities (CR, scanogram CT1, EOS in slow and fast speed) and compared measurement accuracy as well as radiation dose. Researchers concluded that using EOS at a faster speed is more accurate than conventional CT and CR for the assessment of bone length and offers a much lower radiation exposure. Their results showed that mean absolute difference between the measurement and the true length of the femur was significantly lower with the EOS system (3.6mm; -0.8%) compared to CR (42.2mm; +8.8%) and scanogram CT (6.3mm; -1.3%). The mean radiation was also significantly lower for EOS-fast (0.68mrad) vs. CR (29.01mrad) and scanogram CT scans (3.74 mrad).
