The EOSedge is an innovative medical imaging system from EOS imaging that can obtain two high-quality full-body scans in less than 20 seconds, giving your doctors a more personalized and precise view of your musculoskeletal system.
The EOS imaging system uses a low dose of radiation and two small X-ray beams to produce high-resolution frontal and lateral images of your body. The EOSedge can also scan a specific region of your body if a full-body image isn’t needed, and can be used for more traditional X-ray imaging.
UBNS is the only medical facility in Western New York to offer this high-quality, full-body musculoskeletal imaging with minimal radiation exposure. This service is being offered to our UBNS patients as well as those who are not patients but in need of a scan to help analyze any musculoskeletal disease or disorder. It is available to adult and pediatric patients in search of a lower dose of radiation when compared to the traditional x-ray.
UBNS doctors can use EOS imaging to better understand your condition and your body to personalize your care plan. EOSedge can help doctors construct 3D models of your spine or lower limbs, and can obtain more accurate clinical measurements. The models and measurements allow doctors to make pre-surgical planning and post-surgical assessments more specific to you.
EOS imaging helps doctors diagnose and treat several different medical conditions, including:
EOS imaging can also help orthopedic surgeons by capturing more accurate and specific images of their patients.
EOSedge was designed to accommodate patients of all ages and sizes, and to maximize comfort. The machine’s open and accessible design allows you to easily walk into the imaging zone while the motorized platform ensures you’re in the right position for your scans.
While you’re in a standing or upright seated position, two narrow X-ray beams scan your body from two different angles – vertical and horizontal – to produce 2D and 3D images for your doctors in less than 20 seconds. The simultaneous scans eliminate the need for repositioning and multiple images as is common with traditional X-rays.
The EOSEdge uses radiation doses that are As Low As Diagnostically Acceptable (ALADA,) resulting in up to an 80% overall radiation reduction. The system’s Flex Dose technology adjusts radiation doses based on each patient, from pediatric to adult, to minimize exposure during scans.
EOS imaging is pediatric-friendly and can be used in place of traditional X-rays to help reduce radiation exposure for kids and teens who may require frequent scans for chronic conditions.
