BOTHELL, Wash. -- (Business Wire)
FUJIFILM SonoSite, Inc., the world leader and specialist in
bedside and point-of-care ultrasound, recognizes Life Line Screening for
providing access to preventive
screening services and encouraging millions of people to take a
proactive approach to their health. With point-of-care ultrasound
visualization, Life Line Screening’s clinicians are able to look inside
a patient’s body to identify disease that could otherwise remain
asymptomatic and undetected. As a leading provider of community-based preventive
health screening events for almost 20 years, Life Line Screening has
administered over seven million screenings.
Colin Scully, Life Line Screening’s Chairman and CEO, said, “Life Line
Screening is committed to ensuring the highest level of accuracy in our
screenings and ultrasound visualization is an important tool that plays
a vital role in providing non-invasive screening tests to our customers.
In collaborating with SonoSite, we have access to the highest quality of
point-of-care ultrasound systems. Given SonoSite’s history of
reliability and robustness, we are confident their products will
continue to provide utmost accuracy to our customers.”
“Life Line Screening provides valuable, even life-altering, services to
patients around the globe and we are excited to partner with the leader
in community-based preventive screenings,” said Kevin M. Goodwin,
SonoSite’s President and CEO. “We are proud that our technology will
continue to aid in facilitating screenings for potentially life-saving
conditions and be a part of Life Line Screening’s mission to make
screenings more accessible and widespread.”
Goodwin, a customer of Life Line Screening (no relation to Kevin
Goodwin), had a life-changing outcome after attending a Life Line
Screening event. Despite a family history of abdominal aortic aneurysms,
Quinton was not undergoing regular monitoring of his abdominal aorta.
“I’m a person that diligently visits my doctor for annual check-ups and
found it unnecessary to go through extra health screenings,” Mr. Goodwin
declared. Taking control of the situation and her husband’s health,
Quinton’s wife encouraged him to attend a local screening event where he
discovered a five centimeter abdominal aortic aneurysm that needed
immediate medical attention, “Now, I’m very thankful that I was
encouraged by my wife to get screened. I went to the screening event
feeling great, so when I received my test results, they nearly knocked
me over. Undergoing this preventive
health screening has given me my life and I’m now a true believer in
their existence.” Click

In addition to providing non-invasive ultrasound screening tests for
risks of stroke and cardiovascular disease, Life
Line Screening also offers other screenings for osteoporosis risk
and additional laboratory testing for cholesterol, diabetes, kidney
disease, and others. All examinations are performed by highly trained
healthcare professionals using advanced technology.
