Fujifilm Announces CT Partnership with Leading Urology Group UroPartners

FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a provider of diagnostic imaging and medical informatics solutions, announced that UroPartners, the largest urology practice in Illinois and top five in the nation, has chosen to standardize on the Persona CT Computed Tomography (CT) system to accelerate their oncology treatment planning capabilities. Designed and built in the U.S., the Persona CT is an innovative CT system from Fujifilm in partnership with Analogic. The system offers advanced oncology simulation and general radiography imaging capabilities with a focus on the patient experience.

“We were looking for a state-of-the-art oncology CT system that improves our patients experiences, ensures speed, comfort and accuracy with every CT scan,” says William Andre at UroPartners, in explaining his facility’s decision to select the Persona CT. “The Persona CT’s wide open bore and forward thinking design features, like metal artifact reduction and 4D gating made it a clear choice in selecting Fujifilm as our partner to propel us into the future. As a leading urology group in the Midwest, we are committed to investing in the latest and best technologies available to ensure our patients receive the most accurate treatments and best results possible in a comfortable environment.”

The Persona CT includes a large, 85 cm bore which brings a more comfortable exam for patients of all sizes, while also simplifying the accuracy of the patient’s radiation treatment planning by uniquely matching the arc of the linear accelerator. Other competitive features include fast and precise 64/128 slice imaging, which allows the system to generate submillimeter high resolution images in any dimension. Faster scans means less burden on patients, especially those that have difficulty holding their breath or position.

“We’re delighted that UroPartners entrusts Fujifilm to drive accuracy for oncology treatment planning,” said Rick Banner, Senior Director of Marketing, Modality Solutions, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Built from the ground up, the Persona CT is equipped with best-in-class detector and system design, advanced image-processing technologies and high rotational speed to provide unparalleled precision and accuracy for accurate ROI identification and tumor volume.”

Patients will be able to receive their CT scans on the Persona CT at the UroPartners’ Gurnee location. For more information on the Persona CT, visit: https://www.fujifilmhealthcare.com/computed-tomography.
