After recently receiving the CE mark, EOS imaging’s online 3D planning software for spinal surgery, spineEOS, has obtained FDA clearance. The regulatory move allows EOS to expand its presence in the United States’ spine and thoraco-lumbar fusion surgery markets, which include approximately 400,000 patients per year and represent more than $3 billion in orthopedic implant value.

The spineEOS online 3D planning software is intended for adults suffering from degenerative or deformative spine conditions, as well as for pediatric patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. It allows surgeons to create treatment plans to achieve optimal sagittal alignment from pelvic and vertebral 3D data obtained in the functional standing position from an EOS exam.

Moreover, the planned surgery and virtual post-correction 3D anatomy can be used to plan for the 3D shape and length of spinal implants. It can also be shared preoperatively to engage the patient in the intended course of therapy, and is accessible in the operating room through a custom planning report.
