Clarius Introduces Pocket Ultrasound for Radiologists At RSNA 2016
Wireless ultrasound for smartphones enables easy ultrasound access anywhere
Clarius Mobile Health (@), a digital healthcare company, demonstrated wireless, handheld ultrasound scanners with a mobile application for iOS and Android smart devices at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting which was held at McCormick Place, November 27-30, 2016.
Kevin Irish, MD, an interventional radiologist who has been using Clarius in test situations during the development process, said: “The ability to put ultrasound literally in the palm of your hand is an important advancement in the development of ultrasound. There are no cables, no need to find a plug, no need to have a large room to allow for bulky equipment. I can literally walk into a room with the patient and can begin scanning. Clarius will be ideal for pain management and limited interventional procedures such as line placements, thoracenteses, paracenteses and biopsies.”
Wireless and compatible with most iOS and Android smartphones and tablets available today, Clarius ultrasound scanners are intended for physicians to use for quick scans at the bedside. The Clarius C3 multipurpose ultrasound scanner is designed to image the abdomen and lungs; it also incorporates a virtual phased array for quick scans of the heart. The Clarius L7 is ideal for guiding procedures and imaging superficial structures.
“By focusing on exceptional image quality, we have succeeded in producing a handheld ultrasound scanner that appeals to a broad spectrum of physicians,” said Laurent Pelissier, Chairman and CEO of Clarius Mobile Health. “We look forward to demonstrating the unique capabilities of Clarius Scanners to the radiology community.”
Clarius Scanners are water resistant for easy cleaning and sterilization. They are powered by a rechargeable battery that is easily exchanged when running low. Built with a magnesium case, Clarius Scanners are designed to withstand challenging environments. The company has filed for regulatory clearance in various regions.
