Wayne, N.J., October 17, 2014 (Booth # 505) – At the Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), The Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. will showcase the EPX-4440HD Digital Video Processor with FICE and Light Source which is now available in the United States. The annual meeting will be held October 17 – 22, 2014 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Flexible spectral Imaging Color Enhancement (FICE) is an image processing technology which generates real-time spectral images from conventional white light images through the use of special processing algorithms. Now available on the VP-4440HD video processor from Fujifilm, it enables users to apply image enhancement to emphasize the contrast to a white light endoscopy image.
"FICE technology is another step forward in Fujifilm’s dedication to providing innovative endoscopic solutions to meet clinical and business needs of medical professionals,” said Keiichi Nagata, President, Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.
