EOS Imaging – A Revolutionary Advance

Innovative system offers high-quality images for adults and children in Kansas City

EOS orthopedic imaging provides high quality scans for adults and childrenThe EOS® orthopedic imaging system offers an ultra-low-dose scan for adults and children with hip, knee or spine conditions. This groundbreaking technology uses significantly less radiation than a standard X-ray. Since patients stand during the exam, EOS shows physicians the patient's natural, weight-bearing posture.

The exam is fast, painless and uses a radiation dose that is as low as reasonably achievable. It's ideal for children who will require multiple X-rays during extended treatment, such as patients with scoliosis.

The University of Kansas Health System is the only hospital in the region offering this exam for adults. To schedule an appointment, call 913-588-1227 or request an appointment online.

Benefits of EOS

EOS offers patients and physicians many benefits, including:

  • A radiation dose as low as reasonably achievable

  • More precise measurements than standard X-ray technologies

  • Stress-free and fast exam – an EOS scan takes 20 seconds or less

  • Full-body, high-quality image that requires no magnification

  • Ability to see the interaction between the joints and the rest of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, hips and legs

  • State-of-the-art planning and treatment of orthopedic conditions

EOS also captures images of both the front and side of the patient's body at the same time. This helps physicians make more accurate diagnoses and measurements without high radiation or multiple exams.
