FUJIFILM showcases AI for digital radiography

By Staff News Brief

FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. is demonstrating how its AI platform can be used in the Emergency Room, Operating Room and during general X-ray exams.

The FDR AQRO mini mobile DR system* demonstrates how AI can be used in the ER with AI-powered recognition algorithms that could help physicians see suspicious findings. AI recognition will search and map images to help identify pathologies such as pneumothorax and more. “It displays a heat map of potential issues and tells you how serious it is and where to find it,” said Robert Fabrizio, Director of Strategic Marketing, Medical Imaging, Modality Solutions.


The FDX Console demonstrates AI in the OR with its
gauze detection capabilities.

The FDX Console* demonstrates AI in the OR with its ability to be paired with Fujifilm mobile systems. The intelligent feature and density recognition are designed to highlight foreign objects such as surgical gauze for images acquired during or post-surgery. “It helps find hard-to-see objects that can be easily missed by X-ray. With this, clinicians prevent issues both during and after surgery to help ensure patient safety,” said Fabrizio. 


Under the REiLI brand, Fujifilm is developing AI technologies
that support diagnostic imaging workflow, leveraging the
combination of its deep learning innovations and distinct
image processing heritage.

AI for positioning navigation is being demonstrated with a camera built into the collimator of a Fujifilm X-ray room. The system will match the exam menu selected for proper patient positioning and check for expected anatomy and/or anatomy orientation prior to exposure.

The company is also showcasing REiLI, the global Medical Imaging and Informatics Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology initiative. Under the REiLI brand, Fujifilm is developing AI technologies that support diagnostic imaging workflow, leveraging the combination of its deep learning innovations and distinct image processing heritage. Applications currently in development include: Region Recognition, an AI technology that helps to accurately recognize and consistently extract organ regions, regardless of deviations in shape, presence or absence of disease, and imaging conditions; Computer Aided Detection, an AI technology to reduce the time of image interpretation and support radiologists’ clinical decision making; Workflow Support, using AI technology to realize optimal study prioritization, alert communications of AI findings, and report population automation. 

FUJIFILM also revealed its latest advancement in enterprise imaging, the Synapse® 7x, which brings diagnostic radiology, mammography and cardiology together on the server-side, enabling immediate interaction with these modality imaging data sets through a single AI-enabled platform to empower physicians to make more efficient and impactful care decisions.

The booth features an AI Lab that features dedicated workstations demonstrating REiLI use cases within Synapse PACS, where attendees can experience the integrated workflows achieved by unifying Fujifilm’s REiLI technology with the company’s server-side PACS system.

In ultrasound, FUJIFILM is showcasing its SonoSite portfolio, as well as the SonoSite Synchronicity workflow manager, which helps healthcare organizations optimize workflows, maximize financial return, improve quality assurance efficiency, and streamline credentialing processes.

*Fujifilm AI integration for digital X-ray is in development and is not yet commercially available.
