Digital imaging equipment provider Radlink has entered into an exclusive worldwide sales agency agreement with Johnson & Johnson (J&J) subsidiary, DePuy Synthes Companies.

The contractual partnership will distribute Radlink’s imaging products, including Galileo Positioning System (GPS) that features Surgeon’s Checklist software.

Radlink CEO Tom Hacking said: "Radlink’s breakthrough imaging technologies enable orthopedic surgeons to pre-operatively plan and intraoperatively confirm the placement of hip replacement implant components in a way that has not previously been possible."

The GPS has been developed for surgeons to address key challenges in hip replacement such as component positioning, sizing, leg length and offset restoration for all surgical approaches.

According to the company, the GPS was in use since 2012 and it has been deployed in the leading hospitals and medical schools in the US.

Radlink also produces DR Pro digital radiography system, CR Pro computed radiography system and PACS technology. It markets products in around 25 countries.
