Lexington, Mass., November 22, 2022 – FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation, a leading provider of diagnostic and enterprise imaging solutions, announced that United Medical Imaging Healthcare (Los Angeles, CA) has begun installing Fujifilm’s new ARIETTA 650 DeepInsight™ ultrasound systems in several of its radiology facilities throughout southern California as part of a volume purchase agreement between the two companies. The systems are the first in the United States to include DeepInsight technology, which uses cognitive technology to extract only necessary information from image raw data and deliver clearer images.
“Ultrasound imaging has become an indispensable diagnostic tool in modern medicine,” said Hideyuki Honda, vice president of ultrasound solutions and business development, FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation. “However, ultrasound images are often subject to noises generated in the system, which can make it difficult to visualize organs and evaluate lesions in the body. Fujifilm developed DeepInsight as a solution to meet the ever-increasing expectations for precision in image quality and accuracy in diagnosis.”
DeepInsight uses algorithms with cognitive technology to distinguish between echo signals and electrical noise, while still retaining important speckle signals, to selectively extract the signals that are necessary for diagnosis. This results in high quality images, even from deep regions of the body, to support more accurate ultrasound examinations. DeepInsight technology is designed to work in real time, allowing the sonographer to benefit from this powerful image enhancement while scanning to identify areas of interest and ensure the best possible image quality.
“The presence of electronic noise is inherent to ultrasound. DeepInsight is able to remove this noise to reveal image detail, especially in deeper areas of the image where weaker tissue signals are more likely to be obscured in conventional imaging,” said Yvette De Anda, provider relations director at United Medical Imaging Healthcare. “We offer our patients full-service radiology centers that provide one location for all exams, so we need ultrasound systems that do it all. The ARIETTA 650 DeepInsight provides that flexibility in addition to the latest technologies in image enhancement.”
Fujifilm’s ARIETTA 650 DeepInsight and the ARIETTA 850 DeepInsight will be available for demonstration at the 2022 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, booth #1929, held from November 27 – December 1 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
