BOTHELL, WA, November 21, 2017 – FUJIFILM Sonosite Inc., specialists in developing cutting-edge, portable and point-of-care ultrasound solutions, will showcase its latest innovations at the 103rd annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at booth #4111 in the South Hall of McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill. Highlights from Fujifilm Sonosite, Inc.’s portfolio include the Sonosite SII, Sonosite Edge II, and the Sonosite X-Porte.
“The healthcare landscape is rapidly changing and in this fast-paced setting, the only constant is the high demand for faster, less-expensive, and more accurate diagnoses,” said Diku Mandavia, MD, FACEP FRCPC, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President, FUJIFILM Sonosite Inc. “Fujifilm Sonosite is here to help our customers increase workflow efficiencies to deliver better care and improved patient outcomes with our leading point-of-care ultrasound technologies.”
The following will be on exhibit and available for demonstration at RSNA Booth #4111:
- Sonosite SII
The SII empowers efficiency through an intuitive, yet smart user interface that adapts to imaging needs. The system is portable and can be used across multiple hospital environments, including a zero footprint option for space constrained rooms. The SII is equipped with new patent-pending transducer technology, DirectClear, which elevates transducer performance with improved penetration and contrast resolution.
- Sonosite Edge II
The Edge II offers an enhanced imaging experience through industry-first transducer innovations like DirectClear and Armored Cable Technology. It features an interface that has been designed for intuitive access to frequently used functions, like gain, and a wide-angle display with an anti-reflection coating for minimal adjustments during viewing. It is designed to be truly portable and used in the most rigorous environments.
- Sonosite X-Porte
The X-Porte was developed to incorporate a breakthrough, proprietary beam-forming technology: XDI (Extreme Definition Imaging), created to reduce clutter and enhance image contrast. Its slender profile makes it easy to manoeuvre alongside beds and exam tables for point-of-care visualisation and procedures. The X-Porte was designed to have an intuitive touchscreen interface, real-time scan-along learning, and unmatched durability and reliability.
Fujifilm Sonosite designs, manufactures and tests transducers in-house with real-world customer needs in mind. Sonosite transducers resist drop damage and even deterioration from harsh medical cleaners and disinfectants because they are built to exceed stringent military specifications to ensure durability. In high traffic environments, transducers get dropped and cables are often rolled over, stepped on, twisted, and shut in doors - these everyday occurrences can easily damage an average transducer cable which can lead to reduced image quality. Armored Cable Technology surrounds transducer wiring with an embedded metal jacket, further protecting it from common use/abuse scenarios.
Sonosite transducers are not only durable: they are also made to offer superior imaging technology in the busiest, most demanding environments. With DirectClear technology, Sonosite now offers transducers that combine new design features for significant performance improvement. More efficient materials are used to generate a greater acoustic signal, and a reflective layer has been added to reduce the loss of signal penetration. DirectClear and Armored Cable Technology are available on several transducers across the Sonosite point-of-care ultrasound portfolio and all transducers are covered by an industry-leading 5-year warranty.
