Aalborg University Hospital in Denmark Selects EOS for 2D/3D Imaging
EOS imaging system is now installed at Northern Denmark’s largest university hospital
PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EOS imaging (Paris:EOSI) (Euronext, FR0011191766 – EOSI), the pioneer in 2D/3D orthopaedic medical imaging, today announced the installation of an EOS® imaging system at the Aalborg University Hospital (AUH) in Denmark, the largest hospital in the northern Denmark region. AUH is the second hospital in Denmark to install EOS equipment.
“We have a responsibility to the patients we serve, as part of the Danish healthcare system, to provide access to optimal technology for delivering the best possible treatment outcome, while also holding the best clinical research potential. Our decision to install an EOS system was guided by this commitment.”
As the region’s largest hospital, the Aalborg University Hospital plays a central role in the cooperative North Denmark healthcare system, serving more than 1.1 million patients throughout northern and central Denmark. The hospital maintains Danish Quality Model (DDKM) accreditation and is among the largest employers in the region with more than 6,500 employees.
Søren Eiskjær, Chief Spine Surgeon, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Aalborg University Hospital said, “We have a responsibility to the patients we serve, as part of the Danish healthcare system, to provide access to optimal technology for delivering the best possible treatment outcome, while also holding the best clinical research potential. Our decision to install an EOS system was guided by this commitment.”
The EOS system provides full-body images of patients in a natural standing or seated position in both 2D and 3D with 50% to 85% less dose than Digital Radiology and 95% less dose than basic CT scans, in accordance with the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle of radiation reduction. This comprehensive yet low dose imaging makes EOS imaging ideal for pediatric patients who require frequent treatment monitoring.
Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said, “This EOS installation in a second leading Danish university hospital increases our presence and continued technology adoption in Northern Europe. Aalborg University Hospital’s decision to rely on EOS for 2D/3D orthopaedic imaging speaks to growing level of the trust and credibility that has been established among EOS imaging and academic medical institutions.”
