Fujifilm India introduces the most advanced endoscopic ultrasound machine


Bengaluru: FUJIFILM India, a pioneer in diagnostic imaging and information systems, has unveiled the breakthrough ALOKA ARIETTA 850 Diagnostic Ultrasound System in India, with its first installation at Fortis Hospital in Bengaluru, Karnataka, the state’s largest healthcare services provider.

The high-tech ultrasound equipment represents a significant improvement in endoscopic technology and seeks to improve diagnostic precision and picture clarity for gastrointestinal disorders in the region.

In India, modern lifestyles and changing dietary choices are degrading the population’s digestive health, contributing to the rising prevalence of gastrointestinal (GI) diseases.

To address this, FUJIFILM INDIA’s ALOKA ARIETTA 850 Endoscopic Ultrasound Machine at Fortis Hospital, Bannerghatta Road, Bengaluru, is a significant step toward providing world-class diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients suffering from these GI-related diseases, including targeted treatments such as pancreatic pseudo-cyst drainage (without surgery) and pancreatic cancer treatment.

Gastrojejunostomy is performed non-surgically using endoscopic ultrasonography. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided coiling with this system helps accurately treat bleeding in the stomach due to liver cirrhosis. This will also aid in the treatment of jaundice, EUS-guided bile duct draining, and gallbladder drainage.

FUJIFILM India’s Head of Endoscopy Division, Dheeraj Chaudhri, announced the installation of ALOKA ARIETTA 850 in Bengaluru, enhancing cancer staging and diagnostic imaging at Fortis Hospital. The company aims to provide superior medical systems and foster a health-conscious India through continuous innovation in healthcare technology.

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is a minimally invasive approach for detecting cancers of the digestive tract and surrounding organs or tissues. With such great diagnostic and therapeutic precision, clinicians may carefully evaluate organs such as the lungs, pancreas, gallbladder, liver, lymph nodes, and surrounding affected areas.

EUS also allows for the extraction of tissue or fluid samples with a thin needle, eliminating the need for a separate biopsy operation. It also enhances cancer staging by providing precise sampling through fine needle aspiration (FNA) and a fine needle biopsy. Furthermore, EUS is useful in cases of changed anatomy and in cancer patients for a variety of therapeutic methods.
