The papEOS project aims to improve care efficiency for osteoarticular disease during the Pre-, Peri- and Post-operative phases, through developing hardware and software solutions based on EOS stereoradiographic images.

The papEOS project will suggest to patients, surgeons and the healthcare system a personalized care pathway for the most common surgeries:

  • Hip and knee joint replacement
  • Spinal surgery following deformity or degeneration

For each of these surgeries, the project aims to develop a patient workflow viewer including, by integrating data, the different care steps:

  • EOS stereoradiographic images
  • Surgery planning and simulation
  • Bone quality measurement
  • 3D-printed personalized cutting guide
  • Operation process control

The goal of this project is to reduce the cost of these procedures by implementing a quality assurance approach to improve success rates and achieve better performance management.
