The Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems, U.S.A., Inc., will feature its latest innovations, including Sonart and EBUS (Endobronchial Ultrasound System), at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) International Conference on May 17 – 19 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO.
During the conference, Fujifilm will also host a presentation by Jason Akulian, MD, MPH, assistant professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. Dr. Akulian will present a session on the “Use of a hybrid bronchoscope for EBUS-TBNA” and his experience with the Fujifilm EBUS on May 17 and May 18 from 3:00 – 3:40 PM at the Fujifilm booth.
“Fujifilm will provide attendees a high-quality learning experience that showcases our ultrasound bronchoscope and 530 series of video bronchoscopes” said Keiichi Nagata, president, Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.
Fujifilm’s new booth will feature five demonstration areas that will highlight Fujifilm’s ultrasound processor Sonart and the EB-530US ultrasound video bronchscope. A bronch model will be present at each demonstration for attendees to experience hands-on benefits of EBUS. Sonart is equipped with innovative image processing technology called ZONE Sonography™ and Sound Speed Correction Technology that provide excellent diagnostic capabilities, Sonart brings a new approach to endoscopic ultrasound, integrating into a slim endoscopic procedure cart with video processor and light source. With a distal end outer diameter of 6.7mm, the EB-530US scope is designed to improve maneuverability, insertion capability and physician efficiency. Equipped with high-resolution and ultra-small Super CCD chip technology, this scope offers vivid, high-resolution endoscopic images. Unique design features of the EB-530US include a 10° forward oblique view, dual light guide for even illumination and exceptional bending capability to facilitate targeting of accessories.
“With new decisions from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services providing reimbursement for lung cancer screening of current smokers and those with an extensive history of smoking, the need for a less invasive method is clear,” said Kurt Cannon, vice president, Sales, Marketing, Operations & Support Services, Endoscopy Division, FUJIFILM Medical Systems, U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm is dedicated to promoting the early detection of lung cancer through advances in technology and will continue to develop revolutionary and reliable imaging solutions.”
