Chicago, IL - November 30, 2008 - FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA is pleased to announce the commercial availability of the FCR Go™ not only in the United States, but also throughout Europe. The high performance portable digital x-ray system is in demand by facilities around the world that require the efficiency features of the FCR Go combined with Fujifilm’s renowned image quality.

“The FCR Go is quickly becoming the portable of choice for facilities of all sizes because it is a natural fit to address the wide-ranging needs of portable imaging,” said Rob Fabrizio, Fujifilm’s Marketing Manager, Digital X-ray. “Technologists gravitate to its smart features that simplify use, while radiologists appreciate faster access to consistent, higher quality portable images provided by Fujifilm’s on-board image processing and wireless capabilities. Our users are happy to report lower dose requirements, unbelievable improvements in image quality and notable efficiency gains,” he continued.

The FCR Go has been praised by customers for its ability to dramatically shorten exam completion time. Technologists at one facility have estimated a time savings of up to three hours a day. Other features key to the portable’s success include its ease of maneuverability and the flexible and durable FCR cassettes which are half the weight of DR panels and come in multiple sizes, proving to be a better fit to the clinical needs of the NICU, OR and in patient rooms.

In just a few months an impressive 100 units have shipped worldwide, with local customers including Trinity Mother Francis in Tyler Texas; University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, OH; and Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago.
