UT Spine Center adds region's only advanced imaging system

Spine

The Spine Center at the University of Texas Health San Antonio has become the first facility in South Texas to add EOSedge, a state-of-the-art imaging system that provides a full-body scan in 20 seconds with less radiation exposure than traditional X-rays and CT scans.

The technology combines several imaging techniques to better diagnose and treat back pain, addressing the root cause of back and neck conditions, according to a Dec. 6 press release. 

EOS provides the system's spine team with high-quality full-body images and accurate 3D measurements. 

The machine is also easily accessible for a wide range of patients because it stands upright, allowing individuals to walk in and stand.
