The EOS imaging system is able to capture more photons than a conventional X-Ray machine. It is mainly because it uses fewer photons, and it can perfectly produce the diagnostic image. In this method, only fewer X-Rays are needed to create a high-quality size image.

If you know, EOS is a pediatric-friendly imaging scan. It uses a radiation that is equivalent to one third of the dose of the traditional X-Rays. Multiple doses of radiation emitted during the traditional X-rays may unnecessarily inference the life-long exposure. Well, EOS can effectively replace standard X-Rays and thereby reduce the risks associated with the long radiation exposure. There are some instances where EOS can be used together with a CT scan, such a situation generally occurs when precision of a patient’s leg length can be measured accurately by EOS imaging system instead of a CT Scan.

One of the most important practical advantages of the EOS system is – the daily routine to produce high-quality images. It is directly available for diagnostic purposes without further processing. EOS can be prepared by a single examination- merely 25 seconds to prepare. Identical and similar results can be prepared by other forms of radiography, multiple exposure, which mainly requires a longer time.

Secondly, due to high detector sensitivity and insensitivity to diffuse the scattered radiation well as this directly enhances the image quality. One of the other advantages is that it can capture images that typically show objects in 1:1 scale ratio and is importantly true to real- life-size, obviously without magnification and any kind of distortions.

Thirdly, one of the greater advantages is that it has the ability to produce surface 3D reconstructions which will have visual as well as quantitative analysis of the skeletal system. EOS imaging is considered as the routine scan available for radio diagnostic devices that will permit 3D visualization.

Totally, the EOS system has opened a new era. The entire world of three-dimensional is benefited by this massive invention. This has enabled the possibility to capture full-body 2D radiographs with immensely low radiation at home.

The benefits of the EOS X-ray are far more important than the risks associated with it. Radiation emitted during the EOS imaging scan is reduced to a level of 50%. An entire body scan takes around 20-25 seconds. During this time it is essential to stay completely still and take the advice of the radiographer. Once the X-rays are performed, the radiographer needs to check for the results. Sometimes there can be additional scanning if the images have not come clearly. There is nothing extraordinary about it, it is quite common.

There is no specific preparation that is required before the EOS scanning system, but keep in mind to tell the radiographer if there are any chances that you are pregnant. Always be prepared to remove certain items like – watches, jewelry and certain types of clothing as it may contain metal objects and this may tamper the quality of the image.
