France-based EOS imaging has received CE mark approval for its kneeEOS, a new 3D stereo-radiographic planning software for total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

The new 3D surgical planning platform has been developed by using firm’s low dose 3D images and technology from OneFit Medical, a company purchased by EOS imaging in late 2013.

Initially, the kneeEOS will be deployed as an online service to help surgeons in patient’s leg alignment simulation in functional position, knee prosthesis selection and placement simulation based upon 3D images generated by the EOS system.

EOS imaging CEO Marie Meynadier said: "kneeEOS is the first and only 3D planning software for TKA in a functional weight bearing position.

"We are proud that our work has driven this new development and placed our Company at the leading edge of 3D surgical planning tool innovation that maximizes the potential of EOS’ technology for our surgeon users and their patients."

The firm will showcase the new planning suite at the 16th European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EFORT) Congress, which is being held from 27 to 29 May in Prague.

EOS imaging also received CE mark and FDA approval for its hipEOS software in 2014.

The company develops and markets EOS system that offers full-body stereo-radiographic images of patients in functional positions, in both 2D and 3D.
