Medical diagnostic imaging vendor Carestream Health has acquired Quantum Medical Imaging, which sells complementary applications, for an undisclosed price.

Ronkonkoma, N.Y.-based Quantum sells traditional film-based X-ray systems and related components, as well as digital radiography and computed radiography systems. While Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream primarily sells to hospitals with 300 or more beds, Quantum focuses on small- and mid-sized hospitals, along with physician practices and other ambulatory sites. Consequently, the acquisition will expand Carestream's product portfolio and market segments with minimal overlap, according to the company.

Quantum also sells in multiple nations but about 90 percent of its business is in the United States. Carestream sees expansion of Quantum's international presence as a major growth opportunity. Quantum also has a sizable market share in film-based X-ray systems, which Carestream will target for transition to digital systems.

Quantum CEO Scott Matovich will continue running the unit. He also will manage Carestream's U.S. dealer channel business and report to Diana Nole, president of Carestream's Digital Medical Solutions business line. More information is available at and
