The following products will be on display in the Fujifilm booth #629 at SAGES 2019:

Image Generation:

Minimally Invasive Surgical Solutions – Fujifilm will exhibit its complete range of minimally invasive systems and accessories designed to meet the needs of surgeons across the clinical spectrum. Fujifilm technologies are designed to allow surgeries to be performed with less pain while reducing recovery times and improving outcomes.

Image-Enhanced Endoscopy – ELUXEO®, Fujifilm’s next-generation image-enhanced endoscopy solution, provides a less-invasive approach to acquiring key diagnostic imaging and offering therapeutic options leading up to and during medical procedures. Advanced color and light manipulation allows surgeons to achieve advanced visualization.

Point-of-Care Ultrasound – Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is a key resource across many medical specialties, importantly, anesthesiologists and perioperative medicine professionals. Available for portable image capture ahead of procedures as well as bedside during the procedures, this portable visualization tool allows clinicians to diagnose problems at the point of care.

Image Management, Storage, Analysis, Advanced Visualization

Medical Informatics –  Fujifilm’s Synapse Radiology PACS and Synapse 3D are two of the image management, storage, and advanced visualization tools which are integral in the diagnosis and planning stages leading up to, during, and after surgical procedures.

Advance demo requests can be sent to Visit Fujifilm at SAGES booth #629 for additional information.
