FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.—Endoscopy will introduce two new pulmonary imaging devices, its new standard and treatment video bronchoscopes.

“Fujifilm has deep roots in imaging, a history of ‘firsts’ in endoscopy, and is a proven trailblazer in point-of-care ultrasound,” said Diku Mandavia, MD, FACEP, FRCPC, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of FUJIFILM Sonosite and FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Because of this depth of experience, pulmonologists and respiratory therapists know they can rely on Fujifilm to provide a breadth of technologies to support their interventions. Moreover, Fujifilm is committed to advancing the field, which is the primary reason we contribute our state-of-the-art technologies to support hands-on educational sessions at CHEST.”

The following Fujifilm solutions will be available in booth #413:

Sonosite SII-Wave empowers efficiency through an intuitive, yet smart user interface that adapts to imaging needs, now with Continuous and Pulsed-Wave Doppler. The system is portable and can be used across multiple hospital environments, including a zero-footprint option for space-constrained rooms.

Sonosite Edge II offers an enhanced imaging experience through industry-first transducer innovations like DirectClear and Armored Cable Technology. It is built to be truly portable and can be used in the most rigorous environments.

Sonosite X-Porte was developed to incorporate a breakthrough, proprietary beam-forming technology: XDI (Extreme Definition Imaging), created to reduce clutter and enhance image contrast. X-Porte was designed to have an intuitive touchscreen interface, real-time scan-along learning, and unmatched durability and reliability.

Video Bronchoscopes— Fujifilm’s 580 Series Bronchoscopes are equipped with high-resolution image sensors and a new optical lens, and deliver sharp and vivid images to support more accurate and efficient procedures in the bronchial area. The EB-580S Standard Bronchoscope and EB-580T Treatment Bronchoscope received 510(K) clearance in August and are expected to be commercially available later this year.

Ultrasound Bronchoscope— The EB-530US is Fujifilm’s latest ultrasound bronchoscope and is equipped with high-resolution, ultra-small Super CCD chip technology that offers bright, vivid high-resolution endoscopic images, specifically designed for diagnosis and staging.

Unique design features of the EBUS System includes a 10° forward oblique view for navigation and visibility during needle aspiration, dual light guides - one on each side of the accessory channel for even illumination, and exceptional bending capability to facilitate precise targeting of accessories.

Ultrasound Mini Probe - Fujifilm’s Radial Probe System is designed to provide real-time ultrasound imaging of targeted peripheral lung lesions prior to biopsy. The PB2020-M is a radial ultrasonic transducer that is inserted through the instrument channel of a bronchoscope, localizing the exact position of the lesion. This small and lightweight system can be used stand-alone as well as together with a Fujifilm Endoscopic Ultrasound system.
