Dr. Diku Mandavia recently sat down to talk shop with Health Exec Magazine. As the Chief Medical Officer for both Fujifilm Medical Systems and Fujifilm SonoSite, Dr. Mandavia is a busy man. His path to his current role started in Canada (he went to med school in Newfoundland) and performed his residency at LAC+USC Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he recognized the value of ultrasound in the emergency medicine setting.
As he tells Health Exec:
“It was a lightbulb moment for me,” Mandavia says. “This technology was going to have a big impact on patient care. Previously, many of these patients died because we didn’t know if they had internal bleeding or not, or they went to get a CT scan, which at the time, took a long time to obtain and delayed treatment. Bedside ultrasound was a game changer.”
