FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas has been awarded a four-year contract from the U.S. Army and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for use of its innovative surgical C-arm system.
Under the contract, Fujifilm will outfit multiple U.S. Army medical treatment facilities with the company’s Persona C mobile fluoroscopy system, an advanced surgical C-arm designed for imaging across a broad range of diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive surgical procedures. The first C-arm system delivery and installation is slated in early 2022, followed by additional installations throughout the year.
“Fujifilm is honored to be awarded another significant contract from the DLA this year, as it speaks to the confidence and level of trust military officials place in our cutting-edge technology,” says Lou Cavallaro, director, government business sales, FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation. “This achievement reflects Fujifilm’s ongoing commitment to developing the highest quality imaging technology to enhance patient safety and care.”
Fujifilm’s contract was granted after a detailed evaluation and comparison of numerous competitive C-arm technologies. Following a comprehensive assessment of each manufacturer’s system technology, functionality, adaptability, service support infrastructure and cybersecurity compliance, Fujifilm was selected as the singular vendor that best met or exceeded the U.S. Army’s exacting standards.
In August 2021, the company was awarded a 10-year sole source contract for its innovative digital radiography (DR) systems from the U.S. Navy and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). Additionally, Fujifilm has been granted by various branches of the U.S. Federal Government, including a 10-year DOD Digital Imaging Network-PACS (DIN-PACS) IV contract as well as a 10-year Joint DLA/VA Radiology and Imaging Systems Contract.
