STAMFORD, Conn. -- December 6, 2013

(Booth #615)-- FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of
diagnostic imaging products, will showcase a new Digital Radiography (DR)
system, the FDR-flex at the American Association of Equine Practitioners
(AAEP) in Nashville, Tenn. Fujifilm’s FDR-flex is a smart and portable DR
solution uniquely suited for equine and mixed animal practices because it is
lightweight, highly portable, wireless and uses any FDR D-EVO flat panel

“It’s exciting that we can offer a unique product that’s extremely compact and
battery-powered. With Fujifilm’s FDR-flex, veterinarians can work with any
x-ray machine as our panels automatically sense x-ray,” said Eddie Massetti,
manager, Distributor & OEM Sales, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “The
D-EVO panels require lower dose to penetrate and enable veterinarians to cut
their exposure times. We’ve seen reductions anywhere from 20% to 40%.”

The FDR-flex features Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO wireless flat panel detector with
exclusive Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS) technology and Dynamic Visualization
image processing that enhances sharpness while decreasing radiation dose. The
FDR-flex can instantly upgrade any analog portable, x-ray room or remote
location with exceptional image quality as it does not need any integration or
wires to the x-ray unit using Smart Switch technology. The 16 Ib. three piece
system consists of a wireless FDR D-EVO flat panel detector, FDX Console
workstation laptop and supporting communications box.

“Technology plays a key role in caring for our horses. In our ongoing efforts
to offer state-of-the-art service, we are pleased to announce our most recent
upgrade: Fujifilm’s FDR-flex,” Christopher B. Miller, DVM, Miller &
Associates. “With a portable X-ray unit, we can provide a confident diagnosis
at home or on the road; this is important and it allows us to provide the best
care available.”

The FDR-flex is available immediately through authorized Fujifilm dealers. For
more information, facilities can contact their local representative or visit
