Bottom Line: More total hip arthroplasty (THA) is performed worldwide and especially in younger and more active patients compared to earlier decades.Our results will be compared and confronted with the actual literature about this innovative technology.We shall especially emphasize our experience about patients with abnormal posture and the evolution of the subject over time, because the phenomenon of an aging spine is frequently associated with the process of aging hips.

ABSTRACT
More total hip arthroplasty (THA) is performed worldwide and especially in younger and more active patients compared to earlier decades. One of the focuses of THA research in the future will be on optimizing the radiological follow-up of these patients using 2D and 3D measurements of implants position while reducing the radiation dose delivered. Low-dose EOS(®) imaging is an innovative slot-scanning radiograph system providing valuable information in patient functional positions (standing, sitting and even squatting positions). EOS has been proven accurate and reliable without significant inconvenience caused by the metallic artifacts of implants. The ability to obtain precise data on implant orientation according to the patient posture opens new perspectives for a comprehensive analysis of the pelvic frontal and sagittal balance and its potential impact on implants function and failures. We report our 8 years experience on our first 300 THA patients using this technology routinely for pre and post op evaluation. Our results will be compared and confronted with the actual literature about this innovative technology. We shall especially emphasize our experience about patients with abnormal posture and the evolution of the subject over time, because the phenomenon of an aging spine is frequently associated with the process of aging hips.

Mentions: The EOS® system (EOS Imaging, Paris, France) is an innovative slot-scanning radiograph system allowing the acquisition of radiograph images while the patient is standing, sitting or even squatting with less irradiation than standard imaging (Fig. 1). This technology is based on studies of gaseous detectors by Georges Charpak, who won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1992 [9]. EOS was originally used in the peri- and postoperative management of idiopathic scoliosis considering the need for repeated radiographs and the importance of limiting the radiation dose [10]. Spinal deformities can be studied in standing position with AP and lateral radiographic images of equivalent quality in all sections of the spine and furthermore, three-dimensional (3D) models using the Stereos® software [11].
