Fujifilm Receives Vizient Innovative Technology Designation for Digital Radiography Solutions

Designation awarded to FDR AQRO and FDR D-EVO GL Panel recognizes products that bring improvements to the healthcare industry

Fujifilm Receives Vizient Innovative Technology Designation for Digital Radiography Solutions

November 14, 2017 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. announced that its FDR AQRO and FDR D-EVO GL Panel have received 2017 Innovative Technology designations from Vizient Inc., the largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement company in the country. The designations were based on direct feedback from hospital clinicians who interacted with the FDR AQRO and FDR D-EVO GL Panel at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange in Denver on Sept. 14, 2017.

The FDR AQRO is a mini point-of-care digital X-ray system that combines a high-performing and unique infection control design with the sensitivity of Fujifilm's FDR D-EVO II detectors and latest highly refined image processing advancements to generate high-resolution images with low patient dose.

The FDR D-EVO GL panel is the world’s first single exposure long-length detector, according to the company. 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 digital radiography (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.

Vizient represents a diverse membership base that includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute healthcare providers, and represents more than $100 billion in annual purchasing volume. Through its Innovative Technology Program, Vizient works with member-led councils and task forces to review potentially innovative products. If it is determined that a product is innovative, Vizient may award a contract outside of the competitive bid cycle.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
