VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarius Mobile Health ("Clarius") is introducing its Clarius Medical School Award Program. Under that program, Clarius will grant over $200,000 worth of Clarius Ultrasound Imaging scanners to selected Medical Schools after applications are reviewed by an independent clinical panel.
"Teaching ultrasound in medical schools at the undergraduate level is key to raising awareness of the benefits of ultrasound in a myriad of medical specialties and general practice" said Dr. Pete Tonseth, Radiologist and Education Lead for the Medical Undergraduate Ultrasound Program at the University of British Columbia. "The Clarius handheld ultrasound device is perfectly suited to enable educators and students to excel in their initial exposure to ultrasound."
While ultra-portable, the Clarius Ultrasound Scanners make no compromise on image quality, building upon high-density, high-sensitivity piezoelectric material and system-on-chip electronics. The Clarius C3 Tri-scanner™ incorporates proprietary technology to provide high resolution images across all parts of the body including abdomen, lungs, heart and superficial structures. Clarius Cloud enables a central repository where students and educators can store, review and interact with exams, allowing for credentialing.
Medical School Program Leaders can apply for the award online at www.clarius.com/msa. The winners will be announced at the World Congress of Ultrasound in Medical Education in Winston-Salem, NC September 14-16th, 2018. "This Award program, along with other initiatives such as mission support, is part of Clarius' long term commitment to demonstrating the value of ultrasound imaging in expanded fields" said Clarius CEO, Laurent Pelissier.
Clarius differentiates itself from its competitors by offering superior image quality and the ability to image wirelessly on a variety of devices, from iPhones® and iPads® to Android™ phones and tablets. Clarius Scanners are also powered by a removeable battery, and can scan without interruption using a simple fan clip-on accessory. They feature a rugged magnesium case and are fully submersible for cleaning. To date, over 120,000 scanning sessions have been performed with the Clarius scanners.
Clarius Mobile Health will be exhibiting at the AIUM 2018 conference in New York City from March 24-28 at booth 1606.
