IMRIS and the magnetic resonance division of Siemens Medical Solutions announced the signing of a global OEM agreement between the two companies. The agreement provides Siemens with an intra-operative and interventional sales channel for all of its products. In return Siemens provides IMRIS with its complete MRI product line.
“We are very pleased to have this agreement with Siemens,” indicated David Graves, President and CEO of IMRIS. “The access we have to Siemens MR technology will allow us to provide state of the art surgical imaging systems to our customers for multiple Intra-Operative and Interventional applications.
“Siemens is pleased to establish this OEM relationship with IMRIS, and we look forward to our continued relationship” said Norbert Rietsch, Director New Business Opportunities at Siemens Medical Solutions’ MR division. He pointed that Siemens views the expansion of MR usage from a diagnostic tool into adjacent fields of medical treatment as important. Bringing diagnostics and therapy together can improve process quality and cost efficiency.
