Fujifilm VisualSonics, a subsidiary of Fujifilm SonoSite, has received CE mark approval for its ultra high frequency (UHF) clinical ultrasound system, Vevo MD.


Claimed to be the world’s first UHF clinical ultrasound system, the Vevo MD is said to operate at higher frequencies compared against conventional ultrasound systems.

The new clinical ultrasound system provides medical professionals with image resolution down to 30┬Ám.

Fujifilm has also introduced the UHF Series of transducers, which can operate in a wide range of frequencies of up to 70MHz.

Fujifilm SonoSite president & CEO Masayuki Higuchi said: "As the undisputed leader in ultra high frequency imaging systems, Fujifilm VisualSonics once again advances the field of ultrasound with the launch of the Vevo MD."

Fujifilm VisualSonics vice-president and general manager Renaud Maloberti said: "Imagine the great potential this technology has across unexplored applications to visualize the smallest, highly detailed anatomy in a way that has never been done before."

According to Fujifilm, Vevo MD is currently commercially available in most of the European Union countries accepting CE mark.

In September 2015, Fujifilm Sonosite received CE mark approval for its point-of-care solution, iViz, a new platform that integrates ultrasound with medical IT.

The platform enables clinical users, ranging from hospital settings to clinics in remote villages, to carry out ultrasound when and where it is needed.
