Today FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., announced that its pediatric digital X-ray solutions have been added to the Preferred Pediatric Program with Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country.

As a previously awarded supplier, Fujifilm will now offer its pediatric imaging solutions through the Vizient Preferred Pediatric Program, which is designed to support pediatric caregivers with high-quality products, services, analytics and value-add offerings. Products included in the Preferred Pediatric Program are FDR AQRO, mini portable digital X-ray system, FDR D-EVO II Csl digital X-ray detectors, FDR D-EVO GL, the world’s first single exposure long-length detector and the all new FDR Go PLUS, mobile digital X-ray system.

“Fujifilm DR solutions are engineered to provide gentle dose without sacrificing image quality and even assist in infection controls with an exclusive antibacterial coating – making them ideal for imaging pediatric patients,” said Robert Fabrizio, Director of Strategic Marketing, Digital Radiography and Women’s Health, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “We are honored to participate in the Vizient Preferred Pediatric Program. We look forward to working with Vizient members to provide imaging solutions that help enhance safety in pediatric imaging.”

Fujifilm digital X-ray solutions that are part of the Vizient Preferred Pediatric Program include:

FDR AQRO: An innovative new compact portable digital X-ray system designed with a focus on low dose and exceptional maneuverability. The FDR AQRO combines Fujifilm’s latest advancements in dose saving technologies in a light, maneuverable design. In addition, Fujifilm’s Hydro AG Antibacterial Coating is included on the primary surfaces of the machine to provide an added safety measure in infection controls.

FDR D-EVO II Csl (14×17”, 17×17”, and 24x30cm): Fujifilm’s most durable, lightweight and reliable DR detectors are the world’s first and only detectors with an antibacterial coating. Complete with patented Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS) technology, the FDR D-EVO II Csl can deliver images with as much as 20 percent greater dose efficiency than traditional detectors.

FDR D-EVO GL: As the world’s first single exposure long-length detector, the FDR D-EVO GL enhances the workflow of long-view radiography by capturing the entire image in a single exposure in just a few seconds, reducing the chance for patient motion-induced artifacts and time for the patient to remain still. This new DR imaging is further complemented with the ability to capture its images without a grid utilizing Virtual Grid simulation software, lowering dose up to 50 percent compared to grid exams.

FDR Go PLUS: The all new FDR Go PLUS portable digital X-ray system has a compact and quiet design with a new retractable, telescopic column with one of the lowest park positions on a full size portable, to provide easy visibility while traveling and help safely navigate tight confined spaces like the NICU and PICU. The redesign combines an efficient compact system with Fujifilm’s trademark image quality and dose performance.

Fujifilm’s portables are available with the option for kid-friendly graphic decals to help calm patients and their parents during approaching exams.

Vizient represents a diverse membership base that includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute health care providers and represents approximately $100 billion in annual purchasing volume.
