The EOS system can now be marketed in 51 countries.
The EOS system is in clinical use in several markets in the Asia Pacific region, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Australia and Vietnam. In addition, an EOS equipment is installed in a Shanghai hospital where it is being used for clinical studies, creating awareness for the EOS technology in China.

Experience with the EOS system will be shared with Chinese physicians by several French radiologists and orthopedic surgeons during the upcoming Jishuitan Orthopedics Forum in Beijing, April 22-24, 2016. The Forum is a biennial, multi-disciplinary event focused on orthopedics that attracts more than 3,000 attendees from over 1,200 hospitals. This year, the Forum includes special sessions for Chinese-French exchange across multiple areas of orthopedic treatment, including spine, joint articulation, pediatrics and radiology.

It is consistent with our strategy to expand adoption of the EOS system in 3 major regions – North America, Europe-Middle East and Asia-Pacific – to diversify our revenue growth and long-term potential.
