Fujifilm Sonosite’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Diku Mandavia Interviewed by Health Exec Magazine

September 02, 2016

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.”
