Fujifilm to Present Endoscopic Imaging Technologies at SGNA

The Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. will showcase its latest innovations in endoscopic imaging technologies and solutions at the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (SGNA) 44th Annual Course. The annual gathering, which attracts nearly 2,000 professionals in the gastroenterology field, will occur May 7-9, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“It is Fujifilm’s goal to support gastroenterology nurses and associates with our leading technology,” said Keiichi Nagata, President, Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. “In order for Fujifilm to develop cutting-edge solutions to improve gastrointestinal health outcomes, our participation at SGNA is crucial to understand the challenges that nurses and health care staff face in the exam rooms.”

At this year’s meeting, Fujifilm will exhibit its state-of-the-art imaging and technology solutions for gastrointestinal applications. Fujifilm’s innovations are designed to provide greater image clarity and range of movement to support gastroenterology nurses. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to demo Fujifilm’s suite of GI technologies and speak with experts on the latest features.

Some highlights in the booth this year include:

  • The 600 Series Endoscopes are equipped with the close focus capabilities of the CMOS image sensor technology to provide high-resolution imaging as close as 2mm with less peripheral distortion. The 600 Series features a slim insertion portion and Flexible spectral Imaging Color Enhancement (FICE).
  • The Therapeutic Double Balloon Endoscope is engineered to unlock difficult to reach pathways within the digestive tract. The EN-580T has a large instrument channel of 3.2mm for expanded treatment capacity in various procedures. Super CCD and close focus optics provide images with exceptional quality as close as 2mm enabling advanced visualization.
  • Ultrasonic Video Endoscopes provide excellent maneuverability and insertion capability. They are designed to be used with the new the Sonart SU-1 Endoscopic Ultrasonic Processor featuring Fujifilm’s proprietary image-processing technology.

As educational opportunities are the crux of the SGNA annual course, Fujifilm is participating in the workshop, “Train the Trainer: The Reprocessing Competency Defined” on May 6, 2017 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m. CDT. The course is designed for the nurse or technician in the GI setting and will offer a hands-on opportunity to practice the reprocessing steps with Fujifilm’s 600 Series Endoscopes.
