Fujifilm SonoSite Showcase Women’s Health Portfolio at NCoBC

Fujifilm Sonosite Amulet Innovality Aspire HD Plus Comfort Paddle Women's Health

March 21, 2014 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. and Fujifilm SonoSite Inc. showcased its women’s health care solutions at the National Consortium of Breast Center Meeting in Las Vegas, March 15-19. The NCoBC brings together medical and industry professionals from around the globe to network, learn and share ideas, methodologies and treatment options that improve quality of care and outcome for patients diagnosed with breast diseases.

During the meeting, Fujifilm highlighted a broad range of its mammography and ultrasound solutions.

Fujifilm introduced the Amulet Innovality, which can perform breast tomosynthesis studies. The Amulet Innovality also has been designed to enhance patient comfort and the patient experience during annual exams. The Amulet Innovality will be known as the Aspire Cristalle when available in the United States.

The Aspire Comfort Paddle, a patented paddle designed to improve patient comfort and reduce patient pain by allowing technologists to ensure even compression of the breast. The comfort paddle fits to the shape of the breast, while holding the breast securely and ensuring the tissue is separated. The new product is now available with the Aspire HD Plus and Amulet Innovality.

Fujifilm SonoSite Inc. showcased its high-resolution ultrasound kiosk, the X-Porte. X-Porte was designed to cure side-lobe imaging artifacts through SonoSite's Extreme Definition Imaging (XDI). XDI is a beam forming algorithm that reduces visual clutter from side-lobes that affect all ultrasound products regardless of system size. The resulting ultrasound image appears clean with optimal tissue differentiation. The technological innovations are a result of the feedback and experiences of hundreds of clinicians that were observed during the development of the ultrasound kiosk.
