EOS imaging, a Paris, France-based pioneer of 2D/3D imaging and data solutions for orthopedics, announces the installation of its EOS system at Shriners Hospitals for Children—Mexico, in Mexico City. The company’s EOS system is an innovative medical imaging solution combining equipment and services for osteoarticular pathologies and orthopedics.
“The ability to obtain full-body, weight-bearing images of our patients will further enhance the orthopedic care we provide. In addition, the EOS system produces images with far less patient exposure to radiation than conventional x-rays. Our patients deserve safe, quality imaging and this is an important step in the right direction,” says hospital administrator Dr. Mariano Gonzalez Lugo.
Established in 1945, Shriners Hospitals for Children—Mexico has 80 beds and four operating rooms to treat patients up to 18 years of age for general pediatric orthopedics, including upper- and lower-extremity surgeries, spine surgeries, and bone lengthening and correction surgeries.
“We applaud the Shriners Hospitals for Children for their commitment to safe imaging and [we] are excited to see our footprint expand into Mexico,” says Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging. “This is the first facility to adopt our system in Mexico City, serving more than 12 million inhabitants. It marks a significant step towards making our solutions available to Central American patients and healthcare providers.”
