09 May Clarius Receives CE Mark Certification for Seven New Ultra-Portable Wireless Ultrasound Scanners for Apple and Android Devices
Miniaturized to the size of an iPhone, the third-generation ultrasound scanners make high-definition ultrasound affordable for more doctors across specialties in Europe.
Vancouver, BC, May 5, 2022 – Clarius Mobile Health is first to introduce a third-generation product line of high-performance 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 revolutionary pricing and new features that will put premium handheld ultrasound into the hands of more doctors. Clarius has replaced the complex knobs and buttons found on traditional ultrasound systems with an app that uses artificial intelligence and intuitive 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.”
In emergency environments, the Clarius C3 HD3 multipurpose scanner saves lives. Dr. Wolfgang Fleischmann, an anesthesiologist and emergency medicine physician, describes why the Red Cross chose Clarius when it sought to equip its emergency services vehicles with hospital-grade portable ultrasound.
“We had the opportunity to extensively test the Clarius scanner in our prehospital emergency environment. The product impressed us with its image quality, its reliability, its short start-up time, and good price-to-performance ratio. It prompted us to equip all our emergency doctors’ cars and ambulances with the Clarius ultrasound device.”
Clarius sets itself apart from other handheld ultrasound systems with exceptional imaging quality that rivals expensive cart-based systems, wireless connectivity, and specialty scanners with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) 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.
With best-in-class MSK imaging, the Clarius L15 HD3 high-frequency linear scanner is a top choice amongst orthopaedic surgeons. Dr. Rudolf Berlakovits, MD, PhD, an orthopaedic surgeon in Vienna, Austria, describes the advantages of the new Clarius HD3 for safe, procedural guidance.
“To me as an orthopedic surgeon, the Clarius HD3 is a highly recommended device for interventional orthopedics and ultrasound guided orthopedic surgery. There is no cable, making it easy to keep aseptic, and the probe provides perfect handling. Another really great benefit is the possibility to share the findings with colleagues all over the world in real-time with Clarius Cloud exam management.”
Clarius offers software packages designed for many specialty applications including Advanced Breast, Musculoskeletal, Obstetrics, Primary/Critical Care, Vascular, Veterinary Packages, and 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.
Dr. Ines Verner, an Aesthetic Dermatologist based in Tel-Aviv, 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,” Dr. Verner says. “Ultrasound is a gamechanger 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.”
