Clarius Unveils Handheld Ultrasound for Radiologists at RSNA 2016

Android devices at the Radiological Society of North America

Clarius is demonstrating wireless, handheld ultrasound scanners for iOS and Android devices at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting being held at McCormick Place, November 27-30, 2016. The Clarius booth is located in the North Hall, booth 6559.

Kevin Irish, MD, an interventional radiologist who has been using Clarius in test situations during the development process, said: “The ability to put ultrasound literally in the palm of your hand is an important advancement in the development of ultrasound. There are no cables, no need to find a plug, no need to have a large room to allow for bulky equipment. I can literally walk into a room with the patient and can begin scanning. Clarius will be ideal for pain management and limited interventional procedures such as line placements, thoracenteses, paracenteses and biopsies.”

Laurent Pelissier, Chairman and CEO of Clarius, thinks radiologists will welcome the option to have a handheld, easily portable ultrasound device. “By focusing on exceptional image quality, we have succeeded in producing a handheld ultrasound scanner that appeals to a broad spectrum of physicians. We look forward to demonstrating the unique capabilities of Clarius Scanners to the radiology community.”
