March 9, 2022 — Fujifilm Sonosite, Inc., a world leader in point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) solutions today announced it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Butterfly Network in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.

Fujifilm has asserted seven patents (U.S. Patent Nos. 7,169,108; 7,867,168; 8,128,050; 8,861,822; 9,538,985; 6,901,157; and 8,360,981) pertaining to fundamental technologies for acquiring ultrasound images at the point of care with portable handheld systems.
