Fujitsu Unveils 2.3GB DynaMO 2300 SCSI Magneto-Optical Drive

12/3/2003 - Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. (FCPA), a leading provider of removable storage solutions, expanded its reach in the medical imaging marketplace with the introduction of the DynaMO® 2300 SCSI Magneto-Optical (MO) drive at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2003 Conference and Exposition. Fujitsu's DynaMO 2300 SCSI MO drive uses 3.5" 2.3GB Magneto-Optical Disks (MOD) which were recently approved by the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM).

The Fujitsu DynaMO 2300 SCSI external MO drive features a high-speed SCSI-2 interface allowing for convenient drive connectivity. Medical imaging professionals and integrators can now utilize low cost DICOM approved MOD's offering up to 2.3GB of data for storage and interchange of medical images such as ultrasound studies. Fujitsu's DynaMO 2300 SCSI drive offers a cost-effective alternative to current 5.25" inch MOD's commonly used in medical applications today. Additionally, the Fujitsu DynaMO 2300 SCSI external drive is backward-compatible with 1.3GB, 640 MB, 540 MB, and 230 MB 3.5-inch MOD's, which medical imaging professionals have used for the past 10 years.

"Today Fujitsu is providing another removable storage alternative for medical imaging, utilizing DICOM approved 2.3GB MODs," said Dan Dalton, director, optical products at Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "The release of the DynaMO 2300 SCSI underscores Fujitsu's commitment to serving the expanding data storage needs of the medical imaging community."

Pricing and Availability
The DynaMO 2300 SCSI drive is priced at $329 and will be available in the United States through Fujitsu's authorized distributors in January 2004. Fujitsu's 2.3GB MOD's are priced at $20 dollars per disk when purchased in a 5-pack. For more information or to buy direct, visit
