Five hospitals of the Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris public hospital network now use EOS® systems for paediatric and orthopaedic imaging

EOS imaging, a 2D/3D orthopaedic medical imaging company, have announced two new installations of the EOS® system in AP-HP public hospitals in Paris, at the Lariboisière and Trousseau hospitals.

The Lariboisière hospital acquired an EOS® system within the framework of a healthcare co-operation consortium between the hospital and the Bachaumont private radiology centre. The equipment will be used for spine and joint pathologies in adults, with a particular focus on exams associated with hip and knee arthroplasties.

The Trousseau paediatric and perinatal hospital acquired an EOS® system within the framework of the MAMUTH Musculoskeletal Diseases AP-HP initiative, which includes a multiyear clinical research program. This new EOS® system will in particular be dedicated to the imaging of osteo-articular conditions in children, amongst which those with cerebral palsy.

Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said: “These two additional installations in Paris further highlight the medical value of our technology. The EOS® system is immediately usable in the patient care and treatment processes, contributing to the safety and efficiency of orthopaedic diagnosis and treatment thanks to its high-quality, low-dose imaging and to the unique 3D reconstruction of the skeleton in a functional position. We are also very pleased to observe and contribute to the development of public-private partnerships enabling the installation of innovative equipment such as EOS®.”
