Fujifilm SonoSite Inc., a Bothell, Wa.-based developer of point-of-care ultrasound solutions, announces the launch of two new transducers for the company’s SonoSiteiViz point-of-care ultrasound, adding to the two powerful transducers already available with the handheld diagnostic tool.

With the addition of the L25v and C60v transducers to its portfolio, the miniaturized iViz ultrasound system gives clinicians the ability to view superficial applications, such as ophthalmic, arterial, venous, lung, and nerve, as well as deeper applications, including abdominal and obstetrics, company officials say.

“Fujifilm SonoSite designs, manufactures, and tests transducers in-house with real-world customer needs in mind,” says Diku Mandavia, MD, FACEP FRCPC, chief medical officer and senior vice president. “Our transducers exceed stringent military specifications for drop-testing so you can use them with confidence in the most demanding of environments. “

The iViz combines a seven-inch, high-resolution display and proprietary imaging technology to provide superior image quality for quick interpretations and diagnoses by physicians. The iViz is manufactured using aircraft aluminum with beveled edges to protect the display and device from fluid ingress. Additionally, the transducers are drop-tested up to three feet and are IPX-7 rated, making them fully submergible in water and approved disinfectants.
