FUJIFILM SonoSite presents point-of-care ultrasound portfolio at RSNA 2017

Nov. 22, 2017

FUJIFILM SonoSite, specialists in developing portable and point-of-care ultrasound solutions, will showcase its latest innovations at the 103rd annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at booth #4111 in the South Hall of McCormick Place in Chicago. Highlights from Fujifilm SonoSite’s portfolio include the SonoSite SII, SonoSite Edge II, and the SonoSite X-Porte.

“The healthcare landscape is rapidly changing and in this fast-paced setting, the only constant is the high demand for faster, less-expensive, and more accurate diagnoses,” said Diku Mandavia, MD, FACEP FRCPC, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President, FUJIFILM SonoSite.

The following will be on exhibit and available for demonstration at RSNA Booth #4111:

SonoSite SII: The SII empowers efficiency through a user interface that adapts to imaging needs. The system is portable and can be used across multiple hospital environments, including a zero footprint option for space constrained rooms. The SII is equipped with new patent-pending transducer technology, DirectClear, which elevates transducer performance with improved penetration and contrast resolution.

SonoSite Edge II: The Edge II offers an enhanced imaging experience through transducer innovations like DirectClear and Armored Cable Technology.  It features an interface that has been designed for intuitive access to frequently used functions, like gain, and a wide-angle display with an anti-reflection coating for minimal adjustments during viewing.  It is designed to be portable and used in rigorous environments.

SonoSite X-Porte: The X-Porte was developed to incorporate a breakthrough, proprietary beam-forming technology: XDI (Extreme Definition Imaging), created to reduce clutter and enhance image contrast. Its slender profile makes it easy to maneuver alongside beds and exam tables for point-of-care visualization and procedures.  The X-Porte was designed to have an intuitive touchscreen interface, real-time scan-along learning, and unmatched durability and reliability.

Fujifilm SonoSite designs, manufactures, and tests transducers in-house with real-world customer needs in mind. SonoSite transducers resist drop damage and even deterioration from harsh medical cleaners and disinfectants because they are built to exceed stringent military specifications to ensure durability. In high traffic environments, transducers get dropped and cables are often rolled over, stepped on, twisted, and shut in doors—these everyday occurrences can easily damage an average transducer cable which can lead to reduced image quality.  Armored Cable Technology surrounds transducer wiring with an embedded metal jacket, further protecting it from common use/abuse scenarios.
