New point-of-care imaging launched in Australia

Health Industry Hub | January 29, 2024 |

MedTech & Diagnostics News: In a stride towards advancing medical imaging technology, Clarius Mobile Health announced the availability of its wireless handheld whole-body ultrasound scanner in Australia. This cutting-edge medical device uniquely combines phased and linear arrays on a single head, offering unparalleled image quality of both superficial and deep anatomy at the bedside.

“With Clarius PAL HD3, we set out to design a new class of whole-body ultrasound device that produces superior image quality for superficial and deep anatomy, which no other handheld devices, including other Clarius scanners, can match,” stated Kris Dickie, Chief Technology Officer at Clarius.

The Clarius PAL HD3 stands out as a portable powerhouse, delivering high-resolution images from the skin down to an impressive depth of 40 cm. This eliminates the need to switch between devices or transport bulky systems between rooms, providing a seamless and efficient solution for medical professionals.

Dr Hani Mikhail, an expert in critical care and emergency medicine at hospitals in Toowoomba, Queensland, commended on the device, saying, “The ability to seamlessly switch between a plethora of imaging presets and two separate piezoelectric probes using AI autodetection, all without touching a single setting, is just one reason I think this is the most impressive portable ultrasound you can buy today.”

The Clarius PAL, boasting the size of an iPhone, ensures easy mobility from patient to patient and is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. It marks the 11th wireless handheld ultrasound scanner in the Clarius specialty ultrasound lineup, reflecting the company’s commitment to innovation and excellence.

“The popularity of the Clarius PAL in the United States affirms there’s a strong market for a premium ultrasound scanner that supports whole-body exams and broad clinical applications for physicians in urban and rural hospitals and clinics,” emphasised Mr Dickie.

Dr Mikhail underscored the significance of the Clarius PAL in rural health, stating, “Particularly in regional and remote areas, point-of-care ultrasound provides invaluable assistance in diagnosis, management, and monitoring of countless presentations – and the PAL is the jewel in my large collection of portable scanners – combining high-quality imaging, convenience, and the most advanced software implementation I’ve come across. It’s hard to overstate the value of the product.”
