"Every aspect of Sonosite PX was designed specifically for the clinicians on 
the front lines of medicine. We designed Sonosite PX as a tool to help 
clinicians in all fields of medicine to treat patients more effectively where 
it matters most – at the point of care." said Rich Fabian, President and Chief 
Operating Officer of FUJIFILM Sonosite, Inc. "To optimize clinician ergonomics 
and improve efficiency, the system has an innovative and adaptable work surface 
that can be used in a horizontal or vertical position based on the situational 
needs of the exam. The exceptional image clarity is the result of a new 
proprietary imaging technology – seeing anatomy more clearly with Sonosite PX 
provides an unparalleled level of confidence for diagnostic and procedural 

As with all Sonosite POCUS systems, Sonosite PX is built to the legendary 
durability, reliability, and ease of use standards that clinicians around the 
world depend upon. The ultrasound system and the new family of transducers are 
drop-tested to one meter and the work surface is sealed to the edge for 
simplified cleaning and disinfection.  When mounted on the specialized stand, 
Sonosite PX has an adaptable work surface position for optimal clinician 
ergonomics while a small footprint and adjustable height allows for closer 
bedside access. Information essential to completing an exam including patient 
information, reports, and worksheets, is intuitively placed in one location, 
saving clinicians time and effort when navigating the ultrasound system user 

Diku Mandavia, MD, FACEP, FRCPC, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical 
Officer of FUJIFILM Sonosite, Inc. explained, "Clinicians are continually 
expanding their use of ultrasound. With Sonosite PX, they can use one 
ultrasound system for different workflows because it adapts to fit their 
diverse needs." The Sonosite PX user interface is simplified to show most-used 
controls, calculations, and annotations. Dr. Mandavia continued, "The system 
has two cardiac options that allow clinicians to choose between gathering 
targeted information about the heart to determine overall patient well-being, 
or investigate specific cardiac conditions with more comprehensive calculations 
that provide detailed analysis of the structure and function of the heart. This 
allows clinicians to select the cardiac exam type that best fits their 
individual workflow needs. Furthermore in keeping with our commitment to 
education, we have greatly expanded our 3D animation educational videos which 
are very important to new users. Sonosite PX has more than 100 onboard 
scan-along education tutorials; the most expansive library in any point-of-care 

Recognizing the importance of efficient documentation to the electronic health 
record (EHR), Sonosite PX has been designed for onboard documentation of 
ultrasound findings at the bedside. Sonosite PX integrates seamlessly with the 
company's Sonosite Synchronicity ( 
) solution, a workflow manager for POCUS that supports seamless credentialing, 
quality assurance, and billing across departments and institutions.
