Orlando, FL., May 16, 2013 (Booth #1019) – The Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems, U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of endoscopic equipment for gastroenterologists and pulmonologists, will showcase a number of new advances including Sonart, Fujifilm's new ultrasound processor, and companion second generation ultrasound video endoscopes at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) in Orlando, Florida from May 19-21, 2013.

“Fujifilm is a pioneer in developing innovative medical solutions and understands the need for better efficiency in healthcare facilities with reliable, easy to use equipment that improves patient care while containing costs,” said Kurt Cannon, Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Operations, Endoscopy Division, FUJIFILM Medical Systems, U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm offers some of the most advanced endoscopic equipment in the world. The Sonart endoscopic ultrasonography system with its high-resolution, high-quality ultrasound and endoscopic imaging, is one such example.”

Medical professionals in the fields of gastroenterology and pulmonology have recognized performance and high quality imaging in a compact design as valuable modalities. The new system is equipped with innovative image processing technology called ZONE Sonography™ and Sound Speed Correction Technology that provides excellent diagnostic capabilities. Compact, yet comprehensive, Sonart brings a new approach to endoscopic ultrasound, easily integrating into a slim endoscopic procedure cart with video processor and light source. The result is a mobile one-cart solution for all your endoscopic needs.

For added convenience, the system can be used in conjunction with the EG-530UR2 radial scope and the EG-530UT2 convex scope. While the EG-530UR2 radial scope provides unique forward viewing, the design of the EG-530UT2 convex scope permits passage of therapeutic devices and needle position guide on the ultrasound image. These features combined with high quality images enable medical professionals to deliver accurate patient results. Digestive Disease Week (DDW) provides a forum for showcasing the latest innovations in gastrointestinal products and services.
