October 11, 2016 — Clarius Mobile Health demonstrated its ultra-portable ultrasound scanners at the Emergency Medical Services World Expo, Oct. 3-7 in New Orleans. Clarius Mobile Health's user-friendly wireless scanners pair with iOS and Android devices for point-of-care assessments to help diagnose critically ill patients before they reach the hospital.

"One of the biggest obstacles to providing emergency care in the field is the lack of diagnostic tools," said Branden Miesemer, a flight paramedic and medical educator in Nebraska. "Having the ability to use real-time ultrasound imaging in the field will help improve treatment and patient outcomes."

Miesemer, who is the founder of EMSPOCUS and teaches point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) at workshops and online, won a draw for a free Clarius Scanner in September. He picked up his prize at the EMS World Expo. "Winning the Clarius Scanner gives me more opportunities to educate EMS providers on the benefits of ultrasound," Miesemer said.  "Since I can carry Clarius with me, I'll be able to show people what I'm talking about whenever the subject comes up."

Clarius ultrasound scanners are wireless and work with a mobile app that is compatible with most iOS and Android smartphones and tablets available today. The Clarius C3 multipurpose ultrasound scanner is designed to image the abdomen, lungs and for quick scans of the heart. The Clarius L7 linear scanner is ideal for guiding procedures such as nerve blocks and targeted injections.

Clarius Scanners are built with a magnesium case that is designed to withstand difficult environments. The scanners will be water-resistant for easy cleaning and sterilization.  They are powered with a rechargeable battery. 

Clarius scanners are pending regulatory clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CE and Health Canada. Miesemer and all other early users are only able to use the Clarius Scanner for teaching and testing on models. Clarius is ISO Certified and has met all safety requirements.

Images in 69-year-old man with biopsy-confirmed Gleason score 7 (3+4) prostate cancer. (a) Pretreatment axial T2-weighted fast spin-echo MRI scan (repetition time msec/echo time msec, 3820/97) shows tumor in midline anterior transition zone (arrow). (b) Intraoperative MRI scan shows contoured rectal wall (red line), prostate margin (blue outline), and region of interest (orange outline). Because the urethra was included in planned treatment volume, a suprapubic catheter was placed for continuous bladder drainage during treatment. (c) Intraoperative MRI scan shows focused ultrasound beam path (blue) overlaid on treatment plan. Rectangles illustrate each sonication spot. (d) Thermal map image obtained during treatment with heat deposition color coded in red overlaid on sonication spot. (e) Axial gadopentetate dimeglumine-enhanced MRI scan (230/2.97) obtained immediately after treatment shows devascularized ablated volume (arrows). (f) Corresponding T2-weighted fast spin-echo MRI scan (3820/97) at 5 months after ablation shows complete involution of transition zone. All seven cores from treatment area margins were negative for cancer at biopsy. Image courtesy of the Radiological Society of North America
