New EOS Imaging Protocol Allows a Substantial Reduction in Radiation Exposure for Scoliosis Patients
Although statistically significant differences in average measurement error were observed in lordosis and lumbar apex
rotation, these differences are not believed to be clinically significant.
Three-dimensional EOS Analysis of Apical Vertebral Rotation in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
The present study is the first study to measure AVR in a large population of AIS patients using EOS 3-dimensional reconstruction. We report the correction magnitude was significantly affected by the construct.
Flexibility analysis in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis on side-bendingimages using the EOS imaging system
The standing side-bending images in the EOS device contributed the same results as thesupine images, with five times less irradiation. They should therefore be used in clinical routine.
Radiography of scoliosis: Comparative doselevels and image quality between a dynamicflat-panel detector and a slot-scanningdevice (EOS system)
For scoliosis evaluation, the SSS, compared to the DFD system, offers enhancedimage quality while reducing the entrance skin dose in the most radiosensitive areas.Descargar
EOS microdose protocol for the radiological follow-up of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis
Results of the current study show that the new microdose acquisition protocol can be used in clinical practice without altering the quality of the images. The resulting radiation exposure was 5.5
times lower than that received with the prior protocol.
A radiolucent chair for sitting-posture radiographs in non-ambulatory children: use in biplanar digital slot-scanning
EOS imaging enables fast 2-D/3-D imaging of children in standing
load-bearing position. Non-ambulatory children with neuromuscular scoliosis need evaluation of their spinal balance
while in a normal daily position.
Three-Dimensional Spinal Morphology Can Differentiate Between Progressive and Nonprogressive Patients With Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis at the Initial Presentation
This study confi rms that even at the initial visit, 3D morphological differences exist between P and NP AIS. It supports the use of 3D reconstructions of the spine in the initial evaluation of AIS to help predict outcome.
Ionizing radiation doses during lower limb torsion and anteversion measurements by EOS stereoradiography and computed tomography
The SR system delivered substantially lower doses of ionizing radiation doses than CT to all the organs studied: CT doses were 4.1 times higher to the ovaries, 24 times higher for the testicles, and
13–30 times higher for the knees and ankles.
Measuring femoral and rotational alignment: EOSsystem versus computed tomography
Femoral torsion was 13.4◦by EOS vs. 13.7◦by CT (P = 0.5) and tibial torsion was 30.8◦by EOS vs. 30.3◦by CT (P = 0.4). Strong associations were found between EOS and CT valuesfor both femoral torsion (P = 0.93) and tibial torsion (P = 0.89).Descargar
