FUJIFILM announced today that it has been recognised in this year's technology innovation awards sponsored by the global research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan. The medical imaging and informatics company has been presented with a '2012 Global X-ray Mammography Technology Award' for its 3D breast imaging technology.
"We are extremely proud to have received such distinguished recognition from Frost & Sullivan with this award. What it confirms to us is that we have the right technology and product strategies, and the skills to successfully pursue them," says FUJIFILM Australia’s CEO Kevin Masuda. "Our goals of driving technological solutions that will provide exceptional diagnostic environments for healthcare professionals and improved safety, comfort and outcomes for patients are foremost on our agenda, and we remain dedicated to seeing them through."
The award was received during Frost & Sullivan's 2012 Growth, Innovation & Leadership Awards banquet on 10 September 2012 in San Jose, California.
Technology to improve the early detection of breast cancer is still evolving, and one of the most promising advancements is the 3D mammography solution being developed at Fujifilm. "Radiologists will have much more diagnostic confidence when powerful 3D processes make their way into the healthcare marketplace, and that will improve patient outcomes," says FUJIFILM Australia’s General Manager, Medical, Sturt Eastwood. "When approved by the TGA, our 3D digital solution will have the potential to become the standard of care in mammographic imaging, as our recognition by Frost & Sullivan clearly suggests."
Frost & Sullivan bases its findings and decisions on a series of criteria; benchmarks included the uniqueness of the technology, functionality, and relevance to the industry of Fujifilm’s 3D mammography solution.
Women's health represents just one component of Fujifilm's product and technology portfolio, but is also one of the most vital, which is why the company is extremely proud that its 3D system has been identified by Frost & Sullivan for being a top innovation in the field of mammography.
