FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. and FUJIFILM SonoSite.Inc. Presents Imaging Solutions to Orthopaedic Surgeons at 2015 AAOS Annual Meeting

FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. and FUJIFILM SonoSite.Inc. to present its latest and most innovative digital radiography detectors, FDR D-EVO II and its high-resolution ultrasound kiosk, the X-Porte® at the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting held March 25-27 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new FDR-DEVO II detectors are completely redesigned, featuring many new and unique enhancements including: new IPX6 water resistance, improved battery life, improved dose efficiency, and a new internal memory function which stores up to 100 images. Built for real world imaging, these detectors are 20% lighter than prior models, making them among the world’s lightest for their sizes. They are built to last and perform, incorporating durable magnesium alloy enclosure with a sleek surface and tapered edges to simplify technologist handling and positioning under the patient. FDR D-EVO II is also the world’s first detector layered with an antibacterial silver ion coating engineered by Fujifilm and tested to be 100 times more effective than conventional coatings and provide 10,000 times more protection than surfaces with no coatings (based on residual bacteria counts). Fujifilm will showcase its high-resolution ultrasound kiosk, the X-Porte® and its suite of transducers for musculoskeletal exams and injections. X-Porte® was designed to minimize side-lobe imaging artifacts, through a new type of technology never before used in an ultrasound system: SonoSite's proprietary Extreme Definition Imaging™ (XDI). XDI is a 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.
