BOTHELL, Wash. -- December 1, 2013

FUJIFILM SonoSite Inc., the world leader in point-of-care (POC) ultrasound,
will showcase its high-resolution ultrasound kiosk, the X-Porte™, at the 99^th
annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago,
IL. FUJIFILM SonoSite Inc. delivers highly-innovative tools specifically
intended to increase access to ultrasound visualization for patients.

X-Porte was designed to cure side-lobe imaging artifacts, through a new type
of technology never before used in an ultrasound system: SonoSite's
proprietary Extreme Definition Imaging^TM (XDI). XDI is a new beam forming
algorithm that significantly reduces the visual clutter from side-lobes that
affect all ultrasound products regardless of system size. The resulting
ultrasound image appears cleaner with optimal tissue differentiation.

“The overarching goal was to create a high-resolution imaging kiosk that is
also delightful to use. This design intent allows clinicians to efficiently
use ultrasound anywhere in the hospital it is needed,” said Kevin Goodwin,
president and CEO, Fujifilm SonoSite, Inc. “With X-Porte’s advanced signal
processing capabilities and multi-gesture touch screen, I believe that we have
achieved this objective.”

The technological innovations are a result of the feedback and experiences of
hundreds of clinicians that were observed during the development of the
ultrasound kiosk. The FUJIFILM SonoSite engineering team was tasked with
taking the feedback and combining it with inspiration from the world of
consumer electronics to build a system that offers superior image quality in a
highly innovative kiosk design. For this reason, X-Porte represents an
entirely new way to access and deliver high-resolution ultrasound.
