EOS is a medical imaging system whose aim is to provide frontal and lateral radiography pictures, while limiting the X-ray dose absorbed by the patient in vertical pose. The system relies on the high sensitivity of a detector (multi-wire chamber) invented by Georges Charpak (which gave him the 1992 Nobel prize).

EOS is commercialized by the French company EOS imaging as an orthopedic application, with 3D visualization of the vertebral column and/or of the lower limbs of the patients (thanks to the application SterEOS).
