EOS Installs Imaging System in Shriners Hospital

Dec 2018
2D and 3D imaging technology developer EOS Imaging has installed its imaging system in Shriners Hospital for Children—Mexico in Mexico City.

“Shriners Hospitals for Children—Mexico, noted for excellent pediatric specialty care, modern medical technology, and exceptional personnel, is proud to bring the EOS technology to our facility,” said Dr. Mariano Gonzalez Lugo, hospital administrator. “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.”

Established in 1945, Shriners Hospital for Children—Mexico now 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, spine, and bone lengthening and correction surgeries.

The EOS imaging system is a low x-ray-dose, 3D imaging system that scans the patient standing up, allowing doctors to see the child's natural, weight-bearing posture, as well as the interaction between the joints and the rest of the musculoskeletal system — particularly the spine, hips, and legs.

“We applaud the Shriners Hospitals for Children for their commitment to safe imaging and are excited to see our footprint expand into Mexico,” said 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 toward making our solutions available to Central American patients and health care providers.”

EOS develops medical imaging solutions for osteo-articular pathologies and orthopedics.
