January 11, 2016 — Fujifilm VisualSonics Inc. announced CE mark for the Vevo MD, what the company calls the world’s first ultra-high frequency (UHF) clinical ultrasound system. The announcement marks Fujifilm VisualSonics’ expansion into the clinical market.
The Vevo MD operates at much higher frequencies than any conventional ultrasound system currently available. Along with the Vevo MD system, the company also introduced the UHF Series of transducers. This patented transducer technology is capable of operating in a range of frequencies up to 70 MHz, a tremendous increase in resolution compared to conventional ultrasound systems.
The system offers high image resolution down to 30 micrometers — less than half the size of a grain of sand. This will allow applications to visualize the smallest, highly detailed anatomy, including neonatology, vascular, musculoskeletal, dermatology or other small parts within the first 3 cm of the body.
The Vevo MD is now commercially available with CE mark in the majority of European Union countries.
