EOS imaging, specialising in 2D/3D orthopaedic medical imaging, have announced an exclusive partnership with French company Anatoscope to combine Anatoscope’s virtual patient models with EOS 2D/3D images and datasets into the EOS apps for advanced orthopaedic applications. The first applications will be available next year.
Anatoscope, a start-up company created in 2015, develops software solutions to generate 3D digital avatars that are based on a patient’s medical images which allow the simulation of medical treatments. The team has robust experience in developing patient models from CT scans and MR images.
The exclusive agreement and associated licensing rights cover the development of patient avatars from EOS 2D/3D images and datasets as well as their deformation. Initially, the model will take into account the patient corpulence and external body shape in combination with the patient’s skeletal images from their EOS exam. The first applications for this technology will be introduced into the EOS platform in 2017.
Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said: “Introducing a virtual patient model into our advanced 3D orthopaedic applications will assist surgeons as they plan their patient’s spine treatments. The Anatoscope agreement complements the ongoing internal developments with our partner Spinologics to bring within our EOSapps the most cost-effective and relevant solutions to image-based planning, simulation and control of orthopaedic therapies.”
