March 17, 2016 — Clarius Mobile Health is showcasing a new handheld ultrasound scanner with a mobile application for iOS and Android smart devices at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine Conference in New York, March 18-21.
The Clarius ultrasound scanner is wireless and works with a mobile app that is compatible with most iOS and Android smart devices. With automated adjustments and an intuitive interface, the personal ultrasound device is designed to be carried around for quick exams and to guide procedures such as nerve blocks and targeted injections.
Compact ultrasound systems for use at the bedside have become the norm in most hospitals and many private clinics. But with costs ranging from $25,000 to $70,000 for a high-quality system, price has been a barrier for more widespread adoption. Pending regulatory clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CE and Health Canada, Clarius Mobile Health will offer several mobile scanners for the price of a single traditional compact system.
