EOS Imaging Installs First Site in Mexico

September 24, 2018 — EOS imaging recently announced the first installation of an EOS advanced visualization system for orthopedic imaging in Mexico, the largest Central American market, at Shriners Hospitals for Children – Mexico, located 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 Mariano Gonzalez Lugo, M.D., 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 today 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 surgeries, spine surgeries and bone lengthening and correction surgeries.
