October 28, 2016 — Clarius Mobile Health will demonstrate its ultra-portable smartphone ultrasound scanners at the annual conference of the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST 2016), Oct. 22-26 in Los Angeles. Clarius Mobile Health’s user-friendly wireless scanners pair with iOS and Android devices for point-of-care assessments including chest diseases.

“Lung ultrasound has been shown in different studies to be a better test for numerous types of lung pathologies than a chest X-ray and sometimes even better than a CT [computed tomography] scan,” said Shane Arishenkoff, M.D., an internal medicine physician in Vancouver, B.C. “It gives me the ability to get real-time patient information rather than waiting for results.  After initiating treatment, I can go back to the patient to see if my therapies are helping.”

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 lungs and abdomen; it incorporates a virtual phased array for quick scans of the heart. 

“Unlike many new ultrasound machines, Clarius is ideal for lung scanning because it uses a unique imaging technology that provides excellent imaging, yet does not eliminate the artifacts that we need to scan the lung,” said Arishenkoff.  “It’s also great not to have to deal with wires and cords.”

Clarius scanners are water-resistant for easy cleaning and sterilization. They are powered by a rechargeable battery and built with a magnesium case. Clarius is ISO Certified and has met all safety requirements. The company has filed for regulatory clearance in various regions and expects to be ready to sell products by the end of 2016.
