PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EOS imaging (Paris:EOSI) (Euronext, FR0011191766 – EOSI), the pioneer in 2D/3D orthopedic medical imaging, today announces the Company’s continued growth in the South East Asian market with the installation of an EOS® imaging system at the Medic Medical Center (MMC) in Ho Chi Minh City. MMC is the largest radiologic center and medical clinic in Vietnam.
MMC is Vietnam’s most active medical facility in terms of patient volume, providing service to more than 1,000 patients per day, and offers a wide range of specialized services, such as pediatrics, endocrinology, cardiology and neurology. MMC’s network of facilities provides medical services in numerous provinces throughout the country but also in Laos and Cambodia.
Dr. Phan Thanh Hai, Director of the Medic Medical Center at Ho Chi Minh City, said, “As one of the largest medical centers in Vietnam, we must continually seek out proven technologies that will help provide our physicians with the best diagnostic information and our patients with the best treatment outcomes. Our decision to add the EOS system’s low dose 2D/3D imaging satisfies both of those objectives and enables our hospital to continue operating as one of Vietnam’s premier medical facilities.”
The EOS system provides full-body images of patients in a natural functional position in both 2D and 3D with 50% to 85% less dose than digital radiology and 95% less dose than basic CT scans, in accordance with the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle of radiation reduction.
Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said, “EOS imaging is proud of our continued adoption throughout the South East Asian market with an installation at the Medic Medical Center, which is home to Vietnam’s premier radiologic center. MMC’s decision to become the first in South East Asia to adopt EOS for 2D/3D orthopaedic imaging demonstrates the level of trust and credibility we continue to establish throughout the entire region.”
