Wayne, N.J., July 18, 2016 The Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. today announced the launch of its latest innovation, Sonart SU-1 Endoscopic Ultrasonic Processors. Created with the goal of improving patient outcomes, the reimagined models are intuitive, easy-to-use, powerful systems that deliver advanced imaging in a compact design. Fujifilm will offer two models – SU-1 and SU-1 PLATINUM – to meet the needs of healthcare providers.

“Fujifilm strives to improve patient outcomes by engineering and refining imaging technology,” said Keiichi Nagata, President, Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “The new Sonart SU-1 processors combine our insight from healthcare providers with our proprietary image processing technology.” 

The new Sonart SU-1 Endoscopic Ultrasonic Processor combines the technology of advanced imaging in a state-of-the-art, compact footprint that offers built-in intuitive operations and enhanced efficiency. With Sonart SU-1, healthcare professionals can see beyond the pathway, visualizing internal body structures—which support diagnosis and treatment methods. The system offers various imaging modes, including Elastography, available now for the first time on the SU-1 PLATNIUM model.

“We are proud to debut the Sonart SU-1. Based on the input of healthcare professionals—and built with their needs in mind—the system allows for enhanced observation capabilities compared to previous models,” said Kaz Maenosono, Senior Director of Marketing and Product Management, Endoscopy Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.

Additional features of the Sonart SU-1 include the readily accessible terminal USB slot for ease-of-use; tissue and compound harmonic imaging tools to reduce noise and/or enhance near and far fields; and sound speed correction capabilities that ensure a clear image of a targeted area. The system integrates with Fujifilm’s EG-530UR2 and EG-530UT2 ultrasonic gastroscopes and Fujifilm’s EB-530US ultrasound video bronchoscope, which provide excellent insertion capability supported by a flexible insertion shaft, simplified distal balloon control, and guides for fine needle aspiration.
