Children's Hospital Colorado offers a new, faster and better way to take x-rays with an EOS Imaging System. EOS captures head-to-toe images of patients while standing. The machine uses an ultra-low dose of radiation to provide extremely detailed, high-quality images. We are one of a few hospitals in the U.S. to have this imaging system and the first in Colorado.
Benefits of the EOS x-ray imaging system:
EOS uses lower doses of radiation than traditional x-rays; this is important for kids with scoliosis who continue to get imaging exams throughout their life.
3-D renderings provide doctors with better ways to plan surgeries and improve patient outcomes.
An entire body scan takes less than 15 seconds; this makes it easier for kids who have a hard time staying still.
