France-based EOS imaging has launched its new sterEOS 1.8 workstation, designed for radiologists to create 3D models from a low dose or microdose stereo-radiographic exam, including 2D and 3D images and relevant clinical data.

The latest version will enable radiologists to view and share the patient’s anatomy in 3D from multiple perspectives. It will also provide visuals and measurements intraoperatively, conducts post-operative assessment and evaluates patients over time.

Surgeons will use the information generated by sterEOS to effectively diagnose patients, in addition to selecting and positioning implants pre-operatively in 3D.

The firm received CE mark approval for sterEOS workstation, and is planning to commercialize the product in the first quarter of 2016.

The new version will provide a secure way to send EOS stereo-radiographic images to the company’s new online offerings, including external 3D reconstruction or surgical planning, that are being developed within the EOS 3D apps and services.

EOS imaging CEO Marie Meynadier said: "This is an important next step for the EOS platform as the connectivity of sterEOS 1.8 will provide a seamless way for radiologists to transfer patient images to our cloud-based services.

"This release further enhances our efforts to contribute to the treatment of osteo-articular pathologies by making a patient’s 3D dataset accessible along the whole care pathway."

The company will exhibit the new version at the Journées Françaises de Radiologie (JFR) 2015 annual meeting in Paris, France, which will be held from 16 to 19 October.

In September, EOS imaging secured CE mark approval for kneeEOS, a 3D planning software for total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

The system offers full-body stereo-radiographic images of patients in functional positions, in both 2D and 3D. It was developed using EOS’ low dose 3D images and technology from OneFit Medical, a company acquired by EOS Imaging in 2013.
