Carestream Health has acquired Genesis Digital Imaging Inc, Los Angeles, a privately held imaging software developer and distributor of diagnostic imaging systems.

This acquisition enables Carestream to expand its customer base by leveraging the expertise Genesis has in serving US dealers that primarily call on the value tier market and specialty medical practices.

With this acquisition, Carestream stated it now has products, services, and attractive pricing for customers in all areas of the US market. It has a direct sales force offering large hospital customers high-end digital radiography systems and health care IT solutions; its Quantum Medical Imaging organization serves customers in the mid tier hospital, orthopedic, and imaging center segments; and Genesis focuses on customers in the value tier segment.

Genesis distributes Carestream’s Vita computed radiography system and integrates its software with these units.
