FUJIFILM PRESENTS PORTFOLIO OF PEDIATRIC IMAGING SOLUTIONS AT THE 61ST SOCIETY FOR PEDIATRIC RADIOLOGY ANNUAL MEETING
STAMFORD, Conn., May 15, 2018 – FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of diagnostic imaging and medical informatics solutions, today announced that it will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of pediatric solutions, including digital radiography (DR) and healthcare IT, at the 61st Society for Pediatric Radiology Annual Meeting (SPR). The event, which is dedicated to fostering excellence in pediatric health care through imaging and image-guided care, will occur May 16 – 18, 2018 at the Omni Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Fujifilm’s Synapse® PACS has been in use at many of the nation’s largest children’s hospitals for almost two decades, and as we have grown our portfolio over the years to include Cardiology and Vendor Neutral Archiving, we are now in a very unique position as the market leader in Enterprise Imaging for pediatric facilities.” said Bill Lacy, Vice President of Medical Informatics at FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Leveraging our broad experience with our pediatric provider partners we bring a holistic approach to Enterprise Imaging for children’s hospitals. We specialize in the presentation of a streamlined workflow for radiologists and cardiologists, centralization and access to the child’s entire imaging history, and presenting the entire imaging record securely through the EHR with a single enterprise viewer for physicians.”
The full-suite of pediatric-specific solutions includes digital radiography (DR) and healthcare IT products to provide diagnosis, care and protection for the world’s most precious patients: children.
“Undergoing an imaging exam can be a daunting experience for any patient – especially children. Fujifilm’s refined enhancements for pediatric imaging such as low dose optimization, Virtual Grid™ software which further lowers dose, increases comfort and prevents grid related retakes, along with kid-friendly decals, can provide a fast, easy and safe experience to put patients and their parents at ease,” said Robert Fabrizio, Director of Strategic Marketing, Digital Radiography and Women’s Health, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “With Fujifilm’s mobile DR units, the small footprint and maneuverability enable easy and precise reach for tight space-restricted areas such as Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), allowing minimal disturbance to patients and the life-saving equipment they may be connected to.”
Fujifilm pediatric imaging solutions include the following:
FDR AQRO: An innovative new compact portable digital X-ray system designed with a focus on low dose and exceptional maneuverability. The FDR AQRO combines Fujifilm’s latest advancements in dose saving technologies in a light, maneuverable design. In addition, Fujifilm’s Hydro AG Antibacterial Coating is included on the primary surfaces of the machine to provide an added safety measure in infection controls.
FDR D-EVO II Csl (14x17, 17x17, and 24x30): Fujifilm’s most durable and reliable DR detectors are the world’s first and only detectors with an antibacterial coating. Complete with Patented Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS) technology, the FDR D-EVO II can deliver images with as much as 20 percent greater dose efficiency than traditional detectors.
FDR D-EVO GL: As the world’s first single exposure long-length detector, the FDR D-EVO GL enhances the workflow of long-view radiography by capturing the entire image in a single exposure in just a few seconds, reducing the chance for patient motion-induced artifacts and time for the patient to remain still. This new DR imaging is further complemented with the ability to capture its images without a grid utilizing Virtual Grid simulation software, lowering dose up to 50 percent compared to grid exams.
FDR Go PLUS: The all new FDR Go PLUS portable digital X-ray system has a compact and quiet design with a new retractable, telescopic column with one for the lowest park positions on a full size portable to provide easy visibility while traveling, to help safely navigate tight confined spaces like the NICU and PICU. The redesign combines an efficient compact system with Fujifilm’s trademark image quality and dose performance. Fujifilm’s new model is available with the option for kid-friendly graphic decals to help calm patients and their parents during approaching exams.
Synapse Enterprise Imaging: Fujifilm’s Enterprise Imaging solutions enable secure and holistic access to pediatric imaging data and records. The Synapse suite including PACS, VNA, CV, Enterprise Viewer and 3D facilitates real-time image collaboration, the comprehensive patient imaging history through the single enterprise viewer, the ability to anonymize and archive the most sensitive data, all of which is stored securely and centrally in the data center.
