EXECUTIVE INSIGHT: GREG NESBITT, VP GLOBAL HIGH FREQUENCY
Supporting Scientists on the Front Lines of Global Health Challenges
The medical research community is constantly at work solving both near and long term health challenges faced by society. Occasionally, we are called to help on more emergent issues. As this is being written, the Coronavirus is the top headline in the news globally. There is a scramble to get a vaccine developed as soon as possible. Members of our community are answering the call to help.
In the United States, ‘vaping’ related deaths have created an urgent government response. The National Institute of Health has allocated emergency funding to study vaping and lung injury. Vevo users have already begun to get involved in this effort. These challenges know no borders or specific demographics. They are societal and global in nature. We are proud to support scientists who stand on the front lines solving problems and improving health for all.

IMPORTANT: IMPORTANT: Regardless of available system features, we recommend that all customers update their software to this release. Doing so will mitigate potential issues with user experience and enable access (dependant on licensing) to all of the features in the applications.
FUJIFILM VisualSonics is pleased to announce the release of updated versions of software for the Vevo 3100 / LAZR-X Imaging Systems and the Vevo LAB Analysis Workstation. These software updates, both of which are V3.2.5, address a number of minor issues and also enable access to several exciting new capabilities, including:
- Auto LV: A brand new, significantly improved version of the B-Mode AutoLV analysis algorithm. This tool brings the power of Artificial Intelligence algorithms for image analysis to preclinical research.*
- PA EKV Software (Photoacoustic ECG-gated Kilohertz Visualization Mode): Increases temporal resolution for photoacoustic imaging, allowing visualization of dynamic changes in photoacoustic signal in the heart over the entire cardiac cycle. See below.*
- Live Unmixing: The new Live Unmixing feature (available as part of Vevo Multiplexer) allows one spectrally unmixed component to be displayed live during multispectral imaging. Includes oxygen saturation and total hemoglobin measurements for non-OxyHemo multi-wavelength datasets. For use in PA-Mode.*
New Service Plans Available for Vevo 3100
In our continued efforts to meet the needs of our customers, we are pleased to offer the New Vevo Service Plans for our Vevo 3100 customers. Our new service offerings offer greater flexibility and peace of mind to our users. Check out the new plans to see which one would work best for your lab.

PA EKV: Measure Oxygenation in the Heart with Greater Precision
Unlock the ability to detect and assess oxygen saturation and total hemoglobin dynamically throughout the cardiac cycle. The above video shows a PA EKV image of the long-axis view of a mouse left ventricle. Oxygen saturation (red, white, blue) in the anterior myocardium is coregistered with anatomical ultrasound. Find out how PA EKV can advance your research of the heart and vasculature.
