Innovations in Technology

  • A groundbreaking orthopedic X-ray machine called EOS that produces highly detailed head-to-toe images using significantly less radiation than a standard X-ray.
  • An amazing EEG “tattoo,” a stamp-sized patch of tiny circuits, sensors and wireless transmitters to detect seizures in infants. (Currently being tested)
  • Proton therapy (through a partnership with Scripps Health), a highly advanced treatment that targets brain, spinal cord and others cancers with incredible precision.
  • Telemedicine robots that allow doctors to examine patients from anywhere.
