August 11, 2016 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. showcased its portfolio of digital radiography (DR) and women’s imaging solutions at the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) annual meeting, July 31-Aug. 3 in Nashville. The company also sponsored the keynote presentation and led an educational symposium on DR and the impact of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016.

Select highlights from Fujifilm’s comprehensive DR portfolio included:

FDR D-EVO GL – What the company calls the world’s first long-length DR detector begins shipping in the United States this month.

It is designed to acquire long-length radiography for scoliosis and/or long leg exams with a simple, low-dose, fast, single exposure. Featuring a huge 17x49-inch field of view, the FDR D-EVO GL saves time and enhances efficiency, image quality and dose for upright long-length radiography exams. It simplifies long length exams, reducing chances for patient movement artifacts with faster setup and less chance for anatomy cut off due to a wider field of view compared to conventional multi-exposure DR. Compared to computed radiography (CR), the detector uses less dose and eliminates CR reader processing steps. 

Virtual Grid – Also releasing this month is Fujifilm’s second-generation grid simulation image processing. Virtual Grid intelligently interprets and corrects the effects of scatter radiation, adapting contrast to improve image quality for exams acquired without a grid. Virtual Grid enhances patient comfort; eliminates bulky grids, simplifying technologist productivity; makes the detector lighter and faster to position; and lowers dose as much as 50 percent compared to exams performed with a grid. Virtual Grid can be used with both DR and CR, all anatomy, including long length images.

Fujifilm sponsored the general session keynote speaker, Scott Steinberg, as he delivered his presentation, “Leading with Innovation: How to Future-Proof Yourself, Fearlessly Innovate and Succeed in the New Normal.” A celebrated speaker, author, futurist and strategic innovation consultant, Steinberg has earned a reputation for helping professionals and organizations cultivate competitive advantages.

The company also delivered an educational symposium titled “Navigating the New Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016: Challenging Problems…DR Solutions.” Led by Rob Fabrizio, the session covered the business and reimbursement impact of the new legislation on radiology departments. The session also explored the benefits of a CR-to-DR transition, including a variety of improvements to the domains of care as well as a facility’s bottom line.
