FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A, Inc., (Stamford, CT, USA), a provider of diagnostic imaging products and medical informatics solutions, displayed its suite of mobile digital radiography (DR) solutions, including its all-new FDR Go PLUS version portable DR system and the FDR AQRO portable digital X-ray system, at the 103rd scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
Fujifilm’s range of diagnostic imaging products and medical informatics solutions includes digital X-ray systems, the Synapse brand of PACS, RIS and cardiovascular products, and advanced women's health imaging systems.
On display at RSNA 2017 was Fujifilm’s FDR Go PLUS version, which continues with its signature smooth, quiet travel and compact tube head, but now features a collapsible column for maximum visibility while traveling and an extra-large display for optimal previewing at the bedside, along with a new sleek redesign. Other enhancements include user adjustable drive handle (optional), wireless barcode reader (optional), an RFID card reader (optional) and extensive dedicated storage areas. Its software features include new workstation software with automated keypad display, quick start, the company’s latest Virtual Grid simulation software (optional) and Dynamic Visualization II image processing (optional).
"The nature of the radiology department demands a mobile workplace with smaller and lightweight detectors along with compact portable digital X-rays," said Johann Fernando, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A, Inc. "The FDR Go PLUS version is poised to dramatically improve workflow and performance to meet the most challenging mobile demands of imaging."
Also on display at RSNA 2017 was Fujifilm’s FDR AQRO, a complete mini-digital X-ray system, which generates high resolution images with low patient dose by combining the high sensitivity of the company’s D-EVO II detectors and its refined image processing advancements. The system provides reduced dose with Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS), improved image contrast with Virtual Grid and optimized images with Dynamic Visualization II image processing for all patient sizes and anatomy.
