As we move into spring in the Northern Hemisphere, we often associate this time of year with a sense of growth and rejuvenation. This sentiment finds us looking to the future with our customers. 2019 marks a significant milestone for Fujilm VisualSonics and our Vevo users. This year we celebrate our 20th anniversary since being founded by Dr. Stuart Foster in Toronto, Canada. The most noteworthy aspect of this milestone is that you, our customers, continue to tell us what you need to be successful and we continue to find innovative ways to meet your needs.

In an industry where companies come and go over time, we are grateful to our customers who have challenged us and grown with us. Our ability to build a sustainable business ensures we are able to invest in the next generation of solutions and develop new technology to help us find new ways to support your success.

Announcing CE Mark and 510(k) Clearance for the Vevo MD 1.1 Release

We are excited to announce this latest release for the Vevo MD. The innovations in this update are in direct response to feedback from our customers.

"The new Doppler modes will provide additional data for current Vevo MD users while wireless connectivity will drive enhanced workflow and usability. We look forward to seeing these new features in action as the field of ultra high frequency imaging advances." shares Andrew Needles, director marketing and product management.

The Vevo MD 1.1 is now commercially available with CE mark in the majority of European Union countries and with FDA clearance in the United States.

Imaging Zebrafish with High Frequency Ultrasound

Zebrafish are model organisms for biomedical research. There are structural, functional, and genetic similarities with humans that make zebrafish a useful model for not only cardiovascular research but also oncology, developmental biology and aquaculture. Zebrafish are small, develop quickly, and because they are vertebrates, they share many of the same organs and cell types as mammals.

Imaging zebrafish using Vevo imaging technology allows for:

  • Imaging without being affected by skin pigments
  • Imaging fish in their natural environment
  • High frame rates
  • Precise assessment of blood flow and heart rate

Non-invasive Morphological and Functional Assessment of Biological Structures

A conversation with: Dr. Francesca Iacobellis: a specialist radiologist at Centre of Biotechnology of A. Cardarelli Hospital, Naples, explains how ultra high frequency ultrasound imaging is enabling non-invasive morphological and functional assessment of biological structures in preclinical environments.
