CAMBRIDGE, Mass., and PARIS, Sept. 27, 2010 - EOS imaging (http://www.eos-imaging.com) announced today that it is retiring the corporate name 'biospace med' and will now officially be known as 'EOS imaging', effective immediately.
"Our new corporate name leverages the tremendous goodwill and name recognition that we have achieved in Europe and North America for our EOS orthopedic imaging system," said Marie Meynadier, Ph.D., CEO of EOS imaging."EOS is clearly changing the way radiologist/orthopedist teams can now diagnose and treat deformative and degenerative pathologies in all age groups, from children to geriatric patients. Without EOS, radiologists and orthopedists have to interpret what they're looking at in a 2D x-ray. Now, with EOS, they can have a complete view of their patient's skeletal anatomy: life-sized, standing up, and in 3D from all angles. EOS imaging is working to establish EOS as a new modality in orthopedic imaging, with very low X-ray exposure1 to the patient and efficient patient workflow for the physician," added Dr. Meynadier.
"Among radiologists and orthopedists, EOS has now become synonymous with upright, full-body, ultra-low-dose images due to its uniqueness in the medical imaging market," said Hervé Legrand, Vice President of Marketing for EOS imaging. "Orthopedic surgeons are prescribing an EOS exam as they would order an X-ray, a CT scan, or an MRI exam. As a result of this strong branding of EOS, It is logical for us to align our flagship product name with our company name, EOS imaging."
