Booth #110, Hall E-- FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. will demonstrate its commitment to providing exceptional image quality with lower dose by showcasing Fujifilm’s latest DR products and cutting edge technologies at the 2013 AHRA annual meeting and exposition in Minneapolis, MN from July 28 – July 31, 2013.
“Fujifilm is committed more than ever to providing better methods of care in patient safety and satisfaction with the recent introduction of the FDR Go digital mobile system,” said Robert Fabrizio, director of marketing and product development, digital x-ray, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm focused on making workflow easy and accurate for the x-ray technologist and gentle and efficient for the patient. We tackled budget and space challenges while speeding procedure times and reduced patient dose without sacrificing image quality.”
Fujifilm’s FDR Go offers the speed, image quality and dose benefits of Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO detectors and refined image processing, with enhanced portable features including a compact size that’s just right for maneuvering in tight spaces. Radiologists interested in advanced visualization and analysis will find the innovations of Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO 24x30 flat panel detector very appealing for their diagnostic needs. At only 1/2" thick and just 4 lbs, the small format DR detector is just right size for orthopedics, pediatrics, extremities, shoulders, C-spines and more. Its standard size is a perfect fit for the NICU and neonatal isolate trays. The flat panel detector is compatible with Fujifilm’s FDR Go and room retrofit solutions. For customers that are interested in converting or replacing existing imaging solutions, Fujifilm’s unique FDR-flex retrofit kits will also be on display.
As a Platinum Sponsor, Fujifilm is supporting medical imaging education at the AHRA annual meeting and exposition. Fujifilm will sponsor a pre-conference exhibitor symposium on Tuesday, July 30th from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. in meeting room 101AB at AHRA. The symposium will focus on “Digital Radiography and Accountable Care” and will provide a helpful perspective for administrators, radiologists, and technologists in medical imaging. Digital Radiography has made significant technology improvements in image quality, the reduction of patient dose, methods of care and department workflow. This session will provide attendees with perspective on how DR technologies affect patient outcomes, with their potential impact on patient perceptions and subsequent HCAHPS scoring. The exhibitor symposium is available at no additional charge to attendees and offers 1 ARRT Category ACE credit.
