EOS imaging announced the recent entry into the North African market with the opening of two EOS sites in Tunisia.
EOS informed us in its press release that the systems are operated by the public Institut Mohamed Kassab d’Orthopédie and the private Centre d’Imagerie Médicale Ariana in the Tunis metropolitan area. The Institut Mohamed Kassab d’Orthopédie is a center of excellence in Tunisia for orthopedic surgery, treating adults and children with advanced techniques. The Centre d’Imagerie Médicale Ariana, founded in 1992, has a comprehensive radiological suite, including numerous modalities and a staff of 30, of which 4 are radiologists.
EOS imaging also announced that it will be attending the Journées Francophones de Radiologie (JFR) meeting, to be held October 14-17 in Paris, France. EOS plans to share its solutions with radiologists to increase the role of image-based reports and data in the orthopedic care pathways.
Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said, “It’s always exciting when an up-and-coming market adopts the EOS technology. With the opening of these two new sites in Tunisia, providers in North Africa will now have access to reference centers to learn about EOS as they are looking to equip their imaging departments with state of the art, safe and precise imaging. The JFR meeting is also a great forum for sharing with radiologists from Europe and Africa our newest developments and contribute to the strengthening of their relationships with referring surgeons.”
