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.

US image for the corresponding lesion on CT (B) shows diffuse pleural thickening (arrowheads) with a maximum thickness of 3.25 mm. The needle pathway length, measured as the needle length through the pleural lesion, was 6.54 mm (asterisk). Pleural puncture angle (exact value not indicated) is depicted as the angle between the outer line of the pleura and the biopsy needle (thin arrow).
