Clarius Launches Dual-Array Handheld Whole-Body Ultrasound Scanner


Combining phased and linear arrays on a single head, the Clarius PAL HD3 ultrasound device was unveiled at the recent American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly conference.

Featuring the imaging processing technology of traditional ultrasound systems, the newly launched Clarius PAL HD3 handheld ultrasound device reportedly offers an array of features to facilitate real-time, whole-body imaging at a patient’s bedside.

Showcased at the recent American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly in Philadelphia, the FDA-cleared ultrasound device provides high-resolution images from superficial anatomy down to 40 cm of depth, according to Clarius.

The company said other key features of the Clarius PAL HD3 device include advanced eight beamformer image processing technology (in comparison to one or two beamformer processing for the majority of other handheld ultrasound devices), and easy access to phased and linear arrays on a single head.

"The Clarius PAL is a big breakthrough for Clarius and for clinical ultrasound in general. Integrating the phased and linear array means you only need one transducer for 95 to 99% of the studies at the bedside," said Tom Cook, M.D., an emergency physician, and ultrasound educator who practices in Columbia, South Carolina.
