France-based EOS imaging has received CE mark approval for its spineEOS, an online 3D planning software for spine surgery.
Based on EOS bi-planar imaging, the new software enables surgeons to create better treatment plan to achieve improved sagittal alignment for pediatric patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and adults suffering from degenerative or deformative spine conditions.
The new software offers a treatment simulation based on reference values, and considers patient vertebrae shape and position in 3D.
The company said the expected surgical correction can be visualized and captured in a planning report.
EOS imaging CEO Marie Meynadier said: "We are looking forward to highlighting our product offering at AAOS and share the value in the orthopaedic space of our EOS imaging platform and new EOSapps.
"These online 3D surgical planning solutions are a big step towards planning patient-specific procedures in 3D that are cost effective, and provide our company the exciting opportunity to offer full image-based services along key orthopedic care pathways."
EOS imaging also provides hipEOS and kneeEOS software planning solutions, in addition to the spineEOS.
All three EOSapps will be showcased at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting in Orlando, Florida, which is being held from 1 to 5 March.
Based in Paris, the company markets its products in 48 countries, including the US, Japan and the European Union.
