NICE has developed diagnostics guidance on the EOS 2D/3D imaging system.

Diagnostics guidance is designed to help the NHS adopt efficient and cost-effective diagnostic technologies more rapidly and consistently.

NICE has said that although there is not enough evidence of benefit to patients to recommend routine use of the EOS 2D/3D imaging system in the NHS, research to collect more information about patient benefits is encouraged.

Your responsibility

This guidance represents the view of NICE, arrived at after careful consideration of the evidence available. When exercising their judgement, healthcare professionals are expected to take this guidance fully into account. However, the guidance does not override the individual responsibility of healthcare professionals to make decisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual patient, in consultation with the patient and/or guardian or carer.

Commissioners and/or providers have a responsibility to implement the guidance, in their local context, in light of their duties to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and foster good relations. Nothing in this guidance should be interpreted in a way that would be inconsistent with compliance with those duties.
