FUJIFILM SonoSite, Inc. Key Developments

FUJIFILM SonoSite, Inc. Showcases Point of Care Ultrasound Solutions Designed to Support Clinician Needs at RSNA 2015

FUJIFILM SonoSite, Inc. will showcase its complete range of point-of-care ultrasound systems, including the new iViz ultrasound solution at the 101st annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Ill. First commercialized in Europe, iViz was developed from the ground up to meet the needs of the highly-mobile clinician. Clinicians do not always treat patients in traditional care settings or have easy access to supporting hospital infrastructure; instead they rely on tools that can easily be carried to help diagnose a patient’s condition. iViz is a powerful new solution for the evolving needs of these point-of-care users. With iViz, clinicians can seamlessly access learning resources and patient information, store exam findings, submit reports, and consult with remote providers for near real-time assessment, making it especially suited for field use and for the growing area of telemedicine. iViz is a significant milestone in advancing Fujifilm’s integration of ultrasound with medical IT. As a next generation architecture and platform, iViz is the first medical visualization solution that is enabled for bi-directional EMR connectivity through the Synapse® VNA. Using this option, iViz accepts patient demographics from the EMR, eliminating manual entry and saving valuable time. With just a few taps, iViz can also send patient reports to the EMR. Based on the flexible Android OS, the iViz platform will include web-browsing, email and ECG capability on release with the platform also capable of integrating future point of care diagnostics and sensors. Additional offerings on display at RSNA include Fujifilm’s high-resolution ultrasound kiosk, the X-Porte. X-Porte was designed to reduce side-lobe imaging artifacts, through a new type of technology never before used in an ultrasound system: FUJIFILM SonoSite's proprietary Extreme Definition Imaging™ (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 technological innovations are a result of the feedback and experiences of hundreds of clinicians that were observed during the development of the ultrasound kiosk.

FUJIFILM Sonosite Inc. Receives Clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for iViz

FUJIFILM SonoSite Inc. announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for iViz, its newest medical visualization solution. First commercialized in Europe, iViz was developed from the ground up to meet the needs of the highly-mobile clinician.
