HKAI is the only private medical centre in Hong Kong equipped with EOS Low Dose Imaging System.
EOS is a low dose X-ray imaging device that combines a Nobel Prize-winning particle detector and an innovative linear scanning technique, which enables 3D bone envelope modeling of the spine and the lower limbs in a weight-bearing position. EOS is able to display various conditions of the bones while the patient is examined in standing, kneeling and seated positions. This enable to medical specialists to deduce a more comprehensive diagnosis, evaluation and treatment plan.
EOS Low Dose Imaging System requires only 7 seconds to acquire each image, 3 times faster than other digital system.
Patients are only required to be examined in a standing position, then EOS would develop 3D images that enable medical specialist to evaluate the condition of the patient and establish treatment or operation plan. EOS allows full body, weight-bearing, and frontal and lateral images to be acquired simultaneously with significant dose reduction compared to conventional radiography for about 60% to 90%.
