November 11, 2013 — Fujifilm SonoSite Inc., specialists in designing ultrasound tools and education for access to point-of-care visualization, announced that it received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its newest generation of point-of-care (POC) ultrasound, the X-Porte Ultrasound Kiosk. Available in a stationary or a detachable use model, SonoSite will begin shipping the X-Porte kiosk in the United States effective immediately. The X-Porte is currently available in parts of Europe and Asia-Pacific.
 
The X-Porte kiosk was created to serve a broad spectrum of users, from novice to advanced, and represents an entirely new design and use paradigm for ultrasound. The foundational advancement behind X-Porte is the Extreme Definition Imaging (XDI) technology.
 
XDI significantly reduces visual clutter from side-lobe artifacts that affect all ultrasound imaging regardless of system size. It also allows for higher resolutions. To maximize the utility of the XDI technology, X-Porte delivers optimum usability and interoperability through its visual learning guides. The kiosk integrates high-resolution ultrasound imaging synchronously with 3-D animations that enable “any user, any time of day” to make the most of the operating the technology. These learning modules can be used simultaneously with live scanning to optimize in-the-moment performance and user consistency. 
 
SonoSite partnered with product designers and experts in advanced automotive animation modeling and distance medical learning. To ensure maximized clinical efficacy, a consortium of expert physician educators contributed their expertise for each 3-D application module.
 
SonoSite’s User-Experience design team developed X-Porte for optimized workflow and use in varied environments. The multi-touch, gesture-driven user interface, comparable to those found in the consumer world, can be personalized by the user and is easily controlled with the glide of a hand and without keys or buttons.
 
The highly cleanable, sealed user interface has minimal crevices to facilitate optimal infection control. The glass surface has been tested against incidental spills and allows cleaning with a wide range of disinfectants without deteriorating the surface over time.
 
The kiosk's slender profile lends itself to easy navigation down corridors and alongside patient beds. It has a detachable use option for low-footprint environments. The ultrasound core can be easily detached from the kiosk as well as upgraded through straightforward software updates or an engine exchange.
 
X-Porte comes with a five-year warranty.
