Fujifilm Medical Systems USA plans to highlight a new mobile x-ray system called FDR Aqro at the upcoming RSNA 2016 meeting.

FDR Aqro offers dose-saving features with a lightweight minimobile cart for use at the point of care, Fuji said. The new unit will be equipped with Fuji's D-Evo II flat-panel digital detectors, which when matched with Fuji's image processing algorithms will deliver high-resolution images at a low radiation dose, according to the company. Additional dose savings are available with the company's Virtual Grid technology.

FDR Aqro also sports an integrated user touchscreen control panel that articulates for easy viewing. The unit has a 12-hour battery life and a Hydro AG coating on primary surfaces to kill germs for better infection control. FDR Aqro is pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance and will be displayed as a work-in-progress.

Fuji is also updating its FDR Go mobile unit for the coming year, with a larger display for better workflow and image preview; redesigned storage for detectors, spare batteries, and wipes; and Virtual Grid available as an option. The company's Dynamic Visualization II image processing algorithm for contrast and density optimization will be available as an option when it receives FDA clearance.

In addition, Fuji's TeraMedica division has released version 6.2 of its Synapse vendor-neutral archive (VNA). The scalable content management system is designed to provide secure storage of and access to all patient images and related content across an enterprise, the company said. Fuji will also showcase its Synapse 5 PACS technology, which features advanced server-side imaging architecture, and its Synapse RIS workflow management system.
