INDIA – FUJIFILM Sonosite, Inc., the world leader in point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) solutions has introduced its portable, ultramodern Sonosite PX ultrasound system in India.
In a press release, Nitin Gupta, Managing Director for FUJIFILM Sonosite India entity, said: “We are very excited to receive India sales license clearance for the Sonosite PX point of care ultrasound system.”
Sonosite PX is the next generation in Sonosite POCUS, with the most advanced image clarity ever seen in a Sonosite system, a suite of workflow efficiency features, and an adaptable form factor.
According to the company, Sonosite PX is built to the legendary durability, reliability, and ease of use standards that clinicians around the world depend upon.
“The ultrasound system and new family of transducers are drop-tested to one meter and the work surface is sealed to the edge for simplified cleaning and disinfection,” FUJIFILM Sonosite outlined.
Sonosite PX launches with a new family of transducers, such as the L19-5, the highest frequency transducer Sonosite has ever produced, providing well-defined near field resolution and a minimum scan depth of 1 cm.
With the newest ultrasound system, clinicians have two cardiac options allowing them to select the cardiac exam type that best fits their individual workflow needs.
“The Sonosite PX user interface is simplified to show the most-used controls, calculations, and annotations,” the medical equipment manufacturer noted.
Clinicians can choose between gathering targeted information about the heart to determine overall patient well-being or investigate specific cardiac conditions with more comprehensive calculations that provide detailed analysis of the structure and function of the heart.
To optimize clinician ergonomics and improve efficiency, Sonosite PX has an innovative and adaptable work surface that can be used in a horizontal or vertical position based on the situational needs of the exam.
“The Sonosite PX has an adaptable work surface position when mounted on its specialized stand and an adjustable height designed to allow for closer bedside access,” the company said.
Information essential to completing an exam including patient information, reports, and worksheets, is intuitively placed in one location, saving clinicians time and effort when navigating the ultrasound system user interface.
It is designed as a tool to help clinicians in all fields of medicine to treat patients more effectively where it matters most – at the point of care.
Commenting on the launch, Rich Fabian, President and Chief Operating Officer of FUJIFILM Sonosite, Inc. said: “Every aspect of Sonosite PX was designed specifically for the clinicians on the front lines of medicine.”
He pointed out that the exceptional image clarity is the result of a new proprietary imaging technology that allows clinicians to see anatomy more clearly.
“Sonosite PX provides a high level of confidence for diagnostic and procedural applications,” Fabian underscored.
He stated that FUJIFILM Sonosite has expanded its library of 3D animation education videos for new Sonosite POCUS users, adding that the Sonosite PX includes more than 150 onboard scan-along education tutorials.
In addition, Sonosite PX integrates seamlessly with the company’s Sonosite Synchronicity solution, a workflow manager for POCUS that supports seamless credentialing, quality assurance, and billing across departments and institutions.
