Hey Clinic for Scoliosis & Spine Surgery opened a new office on the Duke Raleigh (N.C.) Hospital campus.

Here are five things to know.

1. The new office houses the EOS imaging System, offering full-body 2-D and 3-D images with low-dose radiation.

2. The EOS technology emits a radiation dose two to three times less than an X-ray and 20 times less than a CT scan.

3. The Hey Clinic is the only orthopedic clinic in the state with EOS technology.

4. Lloyd Hey, MD, opened the clinic in 2005. He treats scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, sciatica and lower back pain.

5. Dr. Hey completed his combined orthopedic/neurosurgical adult spine fellowship at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C.
