In keeping with previous years, Fujifilm will continue its commitment to education by providing equipment to support a technical demonstration of colonoscopy at ACG’s “Careers in Medicine” high school outreach event. Hosted by ACG’s Committee on Minority Affairs and Cultural Diversity, the program will take place on Tuesday, October 20 from 8:30 AM- 10:00 AM at Radford High School in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Fujifilm’s portfolio of products are designed to improve the quality of what gastroenterologist’s can see—which, in turn, provides increased confidence during critical procedures. The following will be featured at ACG:
- 600 Series endoscopes with CMOS technology – the EG-600WR and EC-600WL are equipped with the latest megapixel CMOS image sensor technology which provides high resolution imaging with 60p video and over one megapixel still images.
- EPX-4440HD with FICE – 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. 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.
- Ultrasound Processor Sonart and companion second generation ultrasound video endoscopes equipped with innovative image processing technology called ZONE Sonography™ and Sound Speed Correction Technology that provides excellent diagnostic capabilities.
“Fujifilm is a customer-focused, leading supplier of high quality endoscope technology,” said Kaz Maenosono, senior director of Product Management, Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “At ACG, we look forward to presenting a progressive and cost-effective product line, and we invite customers to tap our knowledge of financial solutions that can help them operate more efficiently.”
