Fujifilm Sonosite recently celebrated its 10 years of successful operations in India at an event held at Hotel Taj Mahal, New Delhi. More than 50 prominent physicians from across the country attended the event, and shared their experience of using Sonosite ultrasound machines for providing better patient care in their regular practise.
Sonosite offered live demonstrations of existing point-of-care ultrasound systems, and showcased the history of the technology with a display of older ultrasound systems developed since Sonosite’s inception nearly 20 years ago.
Attending the celebration from U.S. headquarters were CMO Dr. Diku Mandavia, VP of Strategic Planning & Global Manager of Global Distribution Division Mr. Kai Fukuzawa. Also attending were Corporate Clinical Technical Specialist DzChyu Ng from Singapore, and the Sonosite India team.

Looking to the Future: The Next 10 Years for Sonosite in India
Over the last 10 years, Sonosite have approached 40,000 physicians in India to offer educational options that develop point-of-care ultrasound skills.
Before the end of 2027, Sonosite India’s goal is to approach at least 1 Lac more physicians with our onsite and online ultrasound education solutions, so that they can deliver timely care that improves patient outcomes across South Asia. Sonosite have always been a company that relies heavily on physician feedback to develop better products and services, and in the realm of education, we aim to continue this trend—asking our physician customers to help us understand what Sonosite can do to create more effective products in the future.
In addition to FUJIFILM Sonosite’s constant ultrasound educational offerings (listed below), we will continue to forge new relationships with physicians at premier medical and educational institutions throughout South Asia, including internships and observerships that help medical students and current medical practitioners learn how to apply point-of-care and bedside ultrasound to their current medical practices.
