Clarius is demonstrating its wireless smartphone ultrasound scanners at the CHEST 2016 conference in Los Angeles, on Oct 22-26 2016.
“Lung ultrasound has been shown in different studies to be a better test for numerous types of lung pathologies than a chest x-ray and sometimes even better than a CT scan,” said Dr. Shane Arishenkoff, an internal medicine physician in Vancouver, BC. “It gives me the ability to get real-time patient information rather than waiting for results. After initiating treatment, I can go back to the patient to see if my therapies are helping.”
Wireless and compatible with both iOS and Android, Clarius smartphone ultrasound scanners are ideal for quick bedside scans. The Clarius C3 multipurpose ultrasound scanner is designed to image the lungs and abdomen, and incorporates a virtual phased array for quick scans of the heart.
“We’re excited about showing our ultra-portable ultrasound scanner to members of the American College of Chest Physicians,” said Laurent Pelissier, Chairman and CEO of Clarius Mobile Health. “Our C3 Scanner is the ideal tool to help treat patients quickly.”
