With the acquisition, Carestream Health strengthens its position in x-ray imaging by providing a broad portfolio of conventional and digital x-ray systems for healthcare providers worldwide.

The combination of the two companies will enable Carestream to better serve the imaging needs of community hospitals and clinics globally and Quantum’s dealers and customers will have access to Carestream Health’s medical imaging and healthcare IT solutions.
