FUJIFILM SonoSite launches iViz highly portable ultrasound system at MEDICA

MEDICA 2015 – from the 16th to the 19th of November – will give the clinical community the opportunity to explore the latest developments in medicine and healthcare, and visitors to hall 10 booth number 10D58 will be able to see FUJIFILM SonoSite’s complete range of point-of-care ultrasound systems, including the new iViz utrasound system. This highly portable system is designed for use in virtually any environment, combining the imaging capabilities of much larger and heavier systems into a one-hand fit and control, thumb operated UI with advanced connectivity and mobile computing, allowing physicians to take the clinic to the patient.

The FUJIFILM SonoSite team – including Brian Leck, Vice President of Global Direct Sales – will be joined by Dr Wolf Armbruster, a specialist in regional anaesthesia, who will be demonstrating scanning techniques and ultrasound applications. Dr Armbruster, Head of the Anaesthesia Department at the Evangelisches Krankenhaus in Unna, said: “I routinely work with a SonoSite ultrasound system every day, and can make good, extremely fast and informed decisions based on the images I see. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for ultrasound, promoting it as a useful and accessible technique, and regularly conduct ultrasound training courses, as well as performing live scanning demonstrations at congresses.”

MEDICA 2015 will also give Torsten Walther, newly appointed Country Manager for Germany, the opportunity to meet many of FUJIFILM SonoSite’s loyal customers for the first time. Torsten brings a wealth of experience in the ultrasound market to this new role, and commented: “I am excited to be joining such a forward-thinking, customer-focused company as FUJIFILM SonoSite, and look forward to working with colleagues and customers to continue the rapid development of point-of-care ultrasound applications across the German healthcare sector.”
