Medical Systems

From digital X-ray diagnostics to radiopharmaceuticals, Fujifilm medical systems offer wide-ranging solutions.

Building on our pioneering diagnostic imaging technologies, we are expanding into the areas of preventive healthcare and treatment. We draw additional expertise from Fujifilm group companies and strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions.

Overview

The leader in digital X-ray diagnostics

We launched our first X-ray film product in 1936 and introduced the world's first digital X-ray imaging and diagnostic system in 1983. Driving the trend toward digital imaging, Fuji Computed Radiography (FCR) products lead the global market, with cumulative sales of over 50,000 units (as of March 31, 2006).

Saving lives with instantly accessible medical images

Physicians use X-rays, ultrasound and other medical images to help decide on treatments. Fujifilm's Synapse system lets doctors quickly access these images and share them via digital networks. Widely used in emergency rooms, Synapse is installed at more than 1,000 hospitals and clinics around the world and has a guaranteed 99.99% uptime. This picture archiving and communication system (PACS) also supports community-based healthcare via dedicated medical network services.

New frontiers in medicine

Endoscopes let doctors look inside the body. But conventional endoscopes, inserted through the mouth, cause gagging. That's why we developed a tiny transnasal endoscope that goes in through the nose. Fujifilm also offers double-balloon enteroscopy and capsule endoscopy systems for intestinal examinations, and equipment and imaging software for surgical procedures.

Fujifilm's compact, portable ultrasound systems are ideal for bedside and emergency situations. Sonography is gentle to the patient and allows real-time imaging. It is commonly used during pregnancy and for breast, heart, and pelvic examinations.

Radiopharmaceuticals help diagnose stroke victims and detect early signs of disease in the brain and other organs. Fujifilm is expanding into this area through group company Fujifilm RI Pharma, following acquisition of the nuclear medicine pioneer Daiichi Radioisotope Laboratories in 2006.
