EOS imaging :De nouvelles études démontrent l'intérêt de l'imagerie 3D EOS dans l'évaluation du traitement de la scoliose par corset
Les Echos
EOS imaging, le pionnier de l'imagerie médicale orthopédique 2D/3D, a annoncé la publication en ligne de deux nouvelles études dans le European Spine Journal favorables à l'utilisation de son système d'imagerie 3D pour évaluer l'impact du port de corset de correction par des patients atteints de scoliose idiopathique de l'adolescence (SIA). La pose d'un corset est la thérapie couramment utilisée pour le traitement des scolioses moyennes, bien que les données actuelles sur l'efficacité de ce traitement pour corriger les déformations de la colonne vertébrale soient peu concluantes.
