“Portable imaging is one of the fastest-paced and most demanding environments in medical imaging, and a system that can consistently capture high-quality images quickly, reliably and efficiently is an absolute necessity. That’s exactly where Fujifilm shines. We consistently focus on ease of use and achieving maximum image quality at the lowest patient dose,” said Robert Fabrizio, director of marketing and product development, digital X-ray, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “FDR Go continues our pursuit to excel in diagnostic confidence and improve patient care. The latest FDR Go is another step on the road to sharing the valuable benefits of Fujifilm innovations with healthcare professionals and patients across the country.”
