Full Body, Low-Dose Radiation Imaging Now Available in Richmond

Jan 18 2023

Our Richmond market is now proudly offering a state-of-the-art, full-body, low-dose radiation imaging system for our patients and community!

The EOSedge system is a remarkable upgrade from standard X-ray imaging in that it offers precise imaging in an open cabin design.

The EOSedge can perform orthopedic images, including full-length spinal exams and weight-bearing long bone images, in several functional positions. It produces 2D and 3D images at a fraction of the typical radiation doses required for a standard X-ray.

While originally designed to help providers better visualize mechanisms between the spine, hip and knee to enhance patient treatment across all stages of care, this system eventually became the standard of care, particularly for parents of children with scoliosis.

“Offering a solution with radiation levels equal to spending a week outside, this imaging solution provides comfort to many parents of children with scoliosis or other orthopedic conditions that require annual or more frequent medical imaging,” Chad Aarons, MD, (pictured in copy, right) a pediatric orthopedic surgeon with Bon Secours Tuckahoe Orthopedics, explains.

The EOSedge system’s open cabin design includes a motorized, enlarged patient platform, which provides a large field of examination and enhanced patient positioning for a comfortable patient experience. It gives providers the insight they need to make well-informed clinical decisions at each point of patient care.

“EOSedge represents an innovative breakthrough for musculoskeletal imaging,” Jed Vanichkachorn, MD, (pictured in copy, left) an orthopedic surgeon with Bon Secours Tuckahoe Orthopedics, adds. “The manipulation of these images will allow our providers to visualize mechanisms between the spine, hip and knee, which will support our process, from diagnoses through treatment and post-surgical assessment.”

The addition of the EOSedge imaging system to our ministry expands our group of cutting-edge orthopedic offerings. Since the acquisition of Tuckahoe Orthopedics, we at Bon Secours have continued to pursue advanced technologies to enhance the patient care experience and lead to better outcomes.

The EOSedge is now available at Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital. Providers and patients who are interested in learning more about or utilizing the EOSedge imaging system can contact their orthopedic provider.
