Clarius Mobile Health is introducing a third-generation product line of wireless ultrasound scanners in the European Union and United Kingdom. Now 30% lighter and smaller, the new pocket-sized scanners that connect with Apple and Android devices are available today with new pricing and features that will put handheld ultrasound into the hands of more doctors.
Specifically, Clarius has replaced the complex knobs and buttons found on traditional ultrasound systems with an app that uses artificial intelligence and touch-based controls. Thousands of first- and second-generation Clarius scanners are already in use across the continent to improve diagnostic speed and accuracy and improve procedural safety.
“Clinicians in Europe and the UK have been early adopters of Clarius wireless ultrasound, and we know excitement has been building for our new miniaturized Clarius HD3 because we’ve had a long list of customers eagerly waiting for CE certification,” says Clarius Founder Laurent Pelissier. “Our mission has always been to improve patient care by enabling more clinicians to use ultrasound. Now that Clarius is reduced to the size of an iPhone, easier to use, and costs less, we’re expecting more clinicians will use ultrasound to deliver the best patient care.”
According to company officials, Clarius offers imaging quality that rivals cart-based systems, wireless connectivity, and specialty scanners with Software-as-a-Service designed to optimize clarity and workflows for different anatomy and applications. Clinicians can choose from seven ultrasound scanners, each designed to meet the specific requirements of a broad range of medical specialties.
Moreover, Clarius offers software packages designed for many specialty applications including advanced breastand aesthetics. They deliver dedicated presets, advanced workflows, comprehensive measurements, and fined-tuned imaging, leveraging artificial intelligence and SaaS to deliver a complete handheld ultrasound solution that’s connected to the cloud.
Ines Verner, MD, an aesthetic dermatologist based in Tel Aviv, Israel, uses the Clarius L20 wireless ultrasound scanner to prevent complications such as vascular occlusions during aesthetic procedures like cosmetic fillers. She was among the first to try the Clarius L20 HD3 for facial aesthetics.
“It’s a breakthrough in the field. Clarius is a good fit for aesthetics because it lets me clearly see fine facial anatomy, it’s easy to use, the image quality is good, it’s wireless, and it’s small so I can take it with me from room to room,” Verner says. “Ultrasound is a gam-echanger for the aesthetics industry because we can really see what we need to see instead of injecting blindly, which is what most of us used to do. Now, we can inject knowing where we’re going and not to inject where we don’t want to inject.”
