“Portable imaging is one of the fastest-paced and most demanding environments
in medical imaging, and a system that can consistently capture high-quality
images quickly, reliably and efficiently is an absolute necessity,” said Rob
Fabrizio, director of marketing and product development, digital X-ray,
FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm focused on making workflow
easy and accurate for the x-ray technologist and gentle and efficient for the
patient. We’ve integrated a smart full featured mobile design with innovative
image capture technology to address what matters most to our users and the
patient.”

The FDR Go offers the speed, image quality and dose benefits of Fujifilm’s FDR
D-EVO detectors, with enhanced portable features that include a compact size
just right for maneuvering in tight spaces. The portable imaging system allows
technologists to smoothly bring the full capabilities of an x-ray room to the
patient bedside, in the ER, the ICU, NICU and the OR.

“Mobile imaging equipment in the intensive care unit, like the FDR Go, helps
simplify patient comfort without compromising time or accuracy to help save
precious lives. At Children’s Hospital, vulnerable neonatal ICU patients
receive necessary imaging by Fujifilm’s DR portable solution without even
being disturbed from the safety of the isolettes,” said Kari Kunze, radiology
supervisor at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. “These
tiny patients are typically very unstable to move and perhaps so underweight
that they cannot maintain their body temperature. With the FDR Go, we’re able
to take an x-ray without having to disturb the infant, the detector nicely
fits the built in tray.”

Radiation dose reduction is also an obvious priority for hospitals and health
systems, helping to improve patient safety and satisfaction. Evolving to the
next level, FDR Go utilizes today’s latest DR advancements, including
Fujifilm’s exclusive Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS) and Dynamic Visualization
(DV) technologies. ISS detector circuitry design enhances sharpness while
increasing dose efficiency compared to conventional designs.

“The role that the technology selection plays in dose reduction cannot be
denied,” Timothy M. Gustafson, RT, director of imaging services at White
Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA. “At White Memorial Medical, the
cesium detectors used in Fujifilm’s FDR-Go DR system have enabled dose
reductions of more than 50% over the hospital’s previous CR techniques while
producing equivalent or improved image quality.”
