Bothell, Wash.-based Fujifilm Sonosite has debuted the Sonosite PX ultrasound system—the next generation in Sonosite point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) featuring advanced image quality and workflow enhancements.
“Every aspect of Sonosite PX was designed specifically for the clinicians on the front lines of medicine. We designed Sonosite PX as a tool to help clinicians in all fields of medicine to treat patients more effectively where it matters most—at the point of care,” says Rich Fabian, president and chief operating officer of Fujifilm Sonosite. “To optimize clinician ergonomics and improve efficiency, the system has an innovative and adaptable work surface that can be used in a horizontal or vertical position based on the situational needs of the exam. The exceptional image clarity is the result of a new proprietary imaging technology. Seeing anatomy more clearly with Sonosite PX provides an unparalleled level of confidence for diagnostic and procedural applications.”
The Sonosite PX ultrasound system and the new family of transducers are drop-tested to one meter and the work surface is sealed to the edge for simplified cleaning and disinfection. When mounted on the specialized stand, Sonosite PX has an adaptable work surface position for optimal clinician ergonomics while a small footprint and adjustable height allows for closer bedside access. Information essential to completing an exam including patient information, reports, and worksheets, is intuitively placed in one location to save clinicians time and effort when navigating the ultrasound system user interface.
Recognizing the importance of efficient documentation to the electronic health record (EHR), Sonosite PX has been designed for onboard documentation of ultrasound findings at the bedside. Sonosite PX integrates seamlessly with the company’s Sonosite Synchronicity solution, a workflow manager for POCUS that supports seamless credentialing, quality assurance, and billing across departments and institutions.
