The following will be featured at SGNA:


Advanced Endoscopic Platform – A showcase of advanced endoscopic technologies for advanced patient states and procedures will be on display at SGNA, including the Double Balloon platform, FlushKnife and ClutchCutter tools, ERCP endoscope and the FUJIFILM Endoscopic Ultrasound System (EUS).


Double Balloon Endoscope platform, including the new therapeutic DBE endoscope (EN-580T) This new, high-resolution, therapeutic endoscope solution is engineered to unlock access to difficult to reach pathways within the digestive tract. Fujifilm’s EN-580T features a large 3.2mm diameter forceps channel that provides greater suction ability and easier insertion and removal of a balloon catheter. Equipped with a new high-resolution Super CCD image sensor, the EN-580T delivers bright, vivid images. Close focus optics enhance observation capability up to 2mm, enabling more detailed images of the small intestine and less peripheral distortion. Attendees will be able to interactively explore the EN-580T at SGNA.

Interactive Advanced Imaging Technologies — Attendees will have “hands-on” opportunities to explore FUJIFILM’s advanced endoscopic imaging technologies designed to increase visualization, including Flexible spectral Imaging Color Enhancement (FICE) and the clarity and close-focus capabilities of the CMOS imaging 600 Series of FUJIFILM endoscopes.


Interactive Endoscopic Ultrasound Platform (EUS)SGNA attendees will be able to interactively learn about FUJFILM’s innovative EUS technologies, designed to provide advanced endoscopic diagnostics beyond the GI tract walls—all in a unique compact design.


“In today’s changing healthcare system nurses play a greater hands-on role in clinical procedures and it is more important than ever that they have access to state-of-the-art technologies,” said Kaz Maenosono, Senior Director of Marketing and Product Management, Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “At Fujifilm we look forward to attending SGNA as it is the preeminent organization of choice for GI nursing professionals.”
