New Studies Highlight Benefits of EOS®3D Imaging in Assessing Corrective Bracing for Scoliosis

EOS imaging (NYSE Euronext, FR0011191766-EOSI), the pioneer in orthopaedic 2D/3D imaging, today announced that two new studies supporting the use of its 3D imaging technology in assessing the impact of bracing for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) have been published online in the European Spine Journal. Bracing is the preferred therapy for progressive scoliosis with a Cobb angle (curve) in the range of 20° to 45°, though current data on its efficacy in correcting spinal curvatures are inconclusive.

The first study, conducted by the Laboratoire de Biomécanique in Paris, France and published in June, used the EOS® System to obtain 3D images of the spines of 30 patients with AIS. It showed that there is high variability among individual patients in terms of the effectiveness of bracing on 3D Cobb angle and other key spinal parameters.1 The second study, by clinicians at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario and published in July, used 3D imaging provided by the EOS System to evaluate the immediate effects of two common braces on the spine, concluding that braces do differ in their treatment impact.2

Researchers in both studies noted that the low dose 3D imaging enabled by the EOS System allows for immediate control of the bracing as well as for the assessment of the disease progression and corrective impact of bracing treatment.

Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said, “Wearing a corrective brace can be quite challenging for young scoliotic patients, most of them teenage girls. We are pleased that the low dose and 3D capacity of the EOS System may offer a new tool for post-bracing control, as well as for the assessment of the efficacy of this treatment for a condition that affects millions of children and adults worldwide. The research demonstrates yet another clinical application in which the EOS System offers a new and superior method to evaluate a patient’s specific orthopaedic condition and guide the treatment plan. Studies such as these continue to build awareness of the role our technology can play in advancing the understanding of spinal pathology.”

The European Spine Journal is the official publication of EuroSpine, the Spine Society of Europe, and is the second highest rated spine scientific journal worldwide.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
