We love bringing innovation to our community. We are the first and ONLY private practice in California to offer this state-of-the-art technology!
Benefits for Patients:
Reduced radiation dose
The EOS system delivers 50% to 85% less radiation than traditional X-ray systems and 95% less dose than computed tomography (CT) scans. The MicroDose feature further reduces radiation exposure, offering frontal and lateral full spine images at a dose that’s equivalent to only a week’s worth of natural radiation.
High image quality in a weight-bearing position
While some imaging modalities capture images while you are lying down, with the EOS system your imaging exam will be performed while in a standing or seated position. By capturing exams in an upright, weight-bearing position; physicians are able to better evaluate your global posture; understand the relationship between your spine, pelvis, and lower limbs; as well as the compensatory mechanisms of the lower limbs.
This additional data is critical for physicians to improve diagnosis and treatment decisions and plan more precise surgical interventions, which can help to improve patient outcomes.
