For the first time ever in WA, EOS Imaging available at SKG Radiology offers the ability to provide full length, weight bearing x-ray images in under 30 seconds.
Developed from Nobel Prize winning technology, this form of imaging offers very low dose image acquisition (up to 85% less radiation) compared to conventional x-rays.
Images are acquired standing and in one motion, meaning increased patient comfort for adults and children. The lower dosage of radiation is of particular value in children and adolescents who may require multiple spinal x-rays for diagnosis and follow up of scoliosis as this can result in significant radiation exposure over time.
The technology is highly valuable for clinical assessment of spinal, pelvic and lower limb deformity in children and adults.
