BRUSSELS/MUNICH (Reuters) - EU antitrust regulators are set to grant conditional clearance to German health group Siemens Healthineers' $16.4-billion bid for U.S. peer Varian Medical Systems Inc, three people familiar with the matter said.

The EU green light will come after Siemens Healthineers last month offered concessions to address competition concerns about interoperability, the sources said. Such a measure enables computer systems and software to work with each other.
