Stamford, Conn.-based Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., announces that three new healthcare facilities across the United States have integrated the company’s digital radiography (DR) technologies.
“We are proud to partner with leading healthcare facilities to provide cutting-edge technology to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients,” says Rick Banner, senior director of marketing, Fujifilm Medical Systems. “Patients can be reassured that exams conducted with Fujifilm DR systems will be fast and comfortable. And radiologists can be confident that with Fujifilm, exams performed at a low-dose will provide the image quality needed to make informed decisions about the course of care for patients.”
The availability of Fujifilm’s FDR Go Plus—a new portable device capable of fitting in tight spaces, such as operating rooms, emergency departments, and neonatal intensive care units—is driving installations across the U.S, company officials say. Moreover, the following health providers have deployed Fujifilm’s DR technologies:
- Huggins Hospital: The Wolfeboro, N.H.-based facility has installed one FDR Go Plus portable system and one FDR Visionary Suite X-ray room, which features automated positioning and applications to streamline operations.
- John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital: The St. Petersburg, Fla..-based children’s hospital has installed four FDR Go Plus portable DR systems and one FDR D-EVO GL detector, a single exposure, long-length DR detector.
- Los Angeles County Department of Health Services: The second largest municipal health system in the nation has installed 20 FDR Go Plus systems across multiple facilities.
