EOS Imaging Signs Agreement with German Hospital Network
PARIS, July 6, 2016 — Orthopedic medical imaging firm EOS Imaging said it has signed a corporate agreement with Schön Kliniken Hospital Network of Germany, which acquired two EOS platforms earlier this year.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Schön Kliniken cited its desire to provide accurate and holistic measurements of spine problems, especially scoliosis, to improve the clinical outcomes for its patients. EOS provides 3D models, automatically calculated clinical parameters and a suite of 3D surgical planning solutions for improving the treatment of its orthopedic patients, at a reduced level of radiation compared with traditional imaging techniques.
There are 17 Schön Kliniken hospitals in Germany, employing more than 9,400 people who treat more than 100,000 patients each year. It is one of the largest owner-managed clinic groups in the German market and specializes in orthopedics (back, spine, bones and joints), neurology (brain and nerves) and pediatric care.
