Point of Care Ultrasound

Bridging innovations to
todays’ practice needs

What is POCUS?

POCUS, as mentioned in various guidelines, is an acronym which stands for Point of Care Ultrasound, a term that can be adequately described as “a diagnostic or procedural guidance ultrasound that is performed by a clinician during a patient encounter to help guide the evaluation and management of the patient.”


Point of Care Ultrasound is complementary to a medical examination performed by primary care physicians in conjunction to physical examination to investigate unclear findings. As such it is used to find and identify either the presence or absence of specific pathological results seen in your patients. POCUS is an increasingly growing field that can be applied in various clinical situations. It is certainly not limited to its exact definition, seeing as it can be used in an intensive care unit to monitor therapy, in the emergency department to exclude or include severe pathological findings, to look for free fluids inside the abdomen and thorax in trauma patients, or even just in a preclinical setting.

POCUS value to your practice

Nowadays, POCUS has grown even further to the extent that ultrasound machine has been considered as an essential and integrative part of every medical practitioner. Any speciality, in today’s practice needs, requires an ultrasound to:

  • Expedite the clinical decision
  • Increase patient compliance
  • Perform informed and guided interventions

POCUS integration Challenges

POCUS training

However, integrating ultrasound into everyday practice is not an easy task to most medical specialities that don’t have extensive training like radiology-based specialities. Accordingly, the need for speciality-tailored POCUS training is one of todays’ challenges.

Ultrasound Purchase Guide

Furthermore, a couple of issues also emerge:

1- Which ultrasound machine is to invest in?

There is no size fits all and you have to decide on the most relevant probe physics that corresponds to the interventive or preventive procedures you mostly perform with your patients.

Clarius handheld ultrasound provides a wide range of scanners and advanced software packages that fit every specialized practice whether it has an intervention or prevention approach.

Learn more about Clarius family of scanners and the software specialized packages.

This also requires you to familiarize yourself with the technical specs each probe/ultrasound machine can provide. However, specs on paper should also match the output of the machine, which needs to be usable for your diagnostic and/or interventional needs.

Clarius hand heald ultrasound provides a hospital-grade imaging quality, superior design, and the best specs in class, yet at the ease of being able to fit into your pocket.

2- Accessibility: 

in today’s practice, POCUS represents an essential need in everyday practice integration. To fit into your operating theatre, use it for touring your patients, teaching your students and/or using it at your clinic or hospital, the ideal ultrasound machine is the one that helps you tick more than one box and be usable every time everywhere.

Clarius also is your best option for intraoperative ultrasound. Clarius is also powered by dedicated and advanced software packages that back you up in each scenario.

3- Records Management: 

Most of our health institutions lack the PACS system (Picture Archiving and Communication System), which enables HCPs to keep track of imaging system outputs and share them with other specialities for a more collaborative and multidisciplinary approach. This means that you must come up with your own solutions to keep track, document and share ultrasound output. Furthermore, and in the case of the presence of PACS infrastructure, this means that the ultrasound machine of choice should be able to communicate via DICOM to this system.

Clarius provides a user-friendly platform that enables you to seamlessly share, manage and keep track of your ultrasound Images to unlimited cloud storage that also enables you to edit, annotate and perform additional measurements from any other PC or smart device.

4 – The physical presence of an authorized retail and service provider on the ground:

  • The warranty and after-sale service are key pillars to consider in making your purchase decision.
  • The level of support provided by the distributor and the on-ground presence are, indeed, essential.

Aisin: The Gate is the exclusive distributor of Clarius mobile health and is the sole partner that exclusively holds the rights of marketing, sales, and maintenance of Clarius handheld in both Iraq and Jordan.

5- Price and value: 

Given the competition landscape and the variety of options out there, it is not an easy task to pick a price model that corresponds to the added value you look for. In the word of ultrasound machines, a lot of factors should correspond to crafting the final retail price and should be addressed appropriately by suppliers so customers can make an informed decision. Some of these are:

  • Resolution and depth (frequency)
  • number of piezoelectric elements that correspond to the resolution and image quality
  • Imaging modes (B-mode, M-Mode and SC)
  • Doppler capabilities and sensitivity (color doppler, power doppler and PW doppler)
  • Accessibility: weight of the machine and how easy to have it on you in everyday practice. IP rating for water, dust, and detergents so you could also use in intraoperatively. A rigid scanner is also recommended with drop-test rating as you are most likely is going to carry it along with you.
