Alphatec Holdings, Inc. welcomes the EOS imaging (Paris:EOSI) team in a combination forged to improve the predictability of the patient experience in spine from diagnosis through follow up. Combining ATEC with EOS, the recognized global leader in full-body, 2D/3D spine imaging solutions, will create new treatment standards in spine through: REFLECTING THE TECHNOLOGYS VALUE. The two U.S. sales forces will be aligned to create a capital and spine hardware distribution network. The team will extend the clinical value of EOS technology to both customer bases and introduce EOSedge, the next-generation platform recently launched by EOS. Capable of full-body and localized imaging that delivers superior image resolution, EOSedge further optimizes radiation dose and has a fully redesigned, open architecture that significantly expands the applications for EOS in adults and children. INFORMING. The value of EOS extends well beyond imaging. The ability to obtain an unbiased, calibrated full-body image will enable a 3D model of patients skeletal systems and provide unprecedented diagnostic and surgical planning capabilities. The integration of ATECs approach-specific solutions into EOSs 3D surgical planning platform can better inform surgery and enhance the predictability of outcomes by allowing surgeons to more effectively assess the patients full body alignment, establish surgical objectives, and simulate surgery with optimized implants. Additionally, over time, this information will distinguish ATEC with an unrivalled ability to deliver more customized instrument and implant configurations into surgery, reducing inefficiencies. INFLUENCING. Over the intermediate term, the technological foundation of the EOSedge platform will be further developed, facilitating an unprecedented ability to reliably measure bone quality at each vertebral segment. Coupling that information with an increasingly sophisticated 3D alignment and surgical planning platform will support the design and delivery of patient-specific implants, effecting highly customized patient care. PREDICTING. Spine surgery is exceedingly complex. No surgical specialty has more variables that can meaningfully impact a patients short and long-term outcomes. EOS data collection initiatives will be advanced, enabling the creation and refinement of predictive algorithms over time. Predictive models will provide surgeons with critical information throughout the planning phase to more precisely determine the surgical approach with the highest probability for a successful outcome.
