During the meeting, Fujifilm will highlight a broad range of its mammography and ultrasound solutions:

Fujifilm will introduce its latest and most innovative digital mammography system, the Amulet Innovality*.  Among the many new features of the Amulet Innovality is the ability of this system to utilize advanced applications which includes the ability to do breast tomosynthesis studies***. The Amulet Innovality also has been designed to enhance patient comfort and the patient experience during annual exams. The Amulet Innovality will be known as the ASPIRE Cristalle** once available in the United States.


The Aspire Comfort Paddle, a patented paddle designed to improve patient comfort and reduce patientpain by allowing technologists to ensure even compression of the breast. The comfort paddle fits to the shape of the breast, while holding the breast securely and ensuring the tissue is separated. The new product is now available with the Aspire HD Plus and Amulet Innovality.

FUJIFILM SonoSite Inc. will showcase its high-resolution ultrasound kiosk, the X-Porte™X-Porte was designed to cure side-lobe imaging artifacts, through a new type of technology never before used in an ultrasound system: SonoSite's proprietary Extreme Definition Imaging (XDI). XDI is a new beam forming algorithm that significantly reduces the visual clutter from side-lobes that affect all ultrasound products regardless of system size. The resulting ultrasound image appears cleaner with optimal tissue differentiation. The technological innovations are a result of the feedback and experiences of hundreds of clinicians that were observed during the development of the ultrasound kiosk.
