MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach is now the only children’s hospital from the South Bay to Orange County to offer the EOS Imaging System, the first technology capable of providing full-body, 2D and 3D images of pediatric patients in a standing position at a low dose of radiation.
EOS is a device that captures bi-planar images with two perpendicular X-ray beams that travel vertically while scanning the patient from head to toe. In less than 20 seconds, the EOS exam produces simultaneous frontal and lateral, low dose images. The two resulting digital images are processed by EOS’ proprietary sterEOS® software to generate a 3D model of the patient’s spine and/or lower limbs. These detailed images with only 20 seconds of radiation were previously unachievable before EOS technology.
