Clarius Mobile Health has earned FDA 510(k) clearance for its new MSK AI ultrasound system, which identifies and measures tendons in the foot, ankle and knee.
The new MSK AI model will be available in conjunction with Clarius' L7 HD3 and L15 HD3 high-frequency wireless ultrasound scanners.
The MSK AI system will streamline workflows, inform clinical management and provide training assistance during musculoskeletal scanning on the foot, ankle and knee. It will also allow for real-time imaging.
"The new AI from Clarius Mobile Healthcare is a ground-breaking technology that will help with the education of new users to identify MSK structures," Alan Hirahara, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and early tester of Clarius MSK AI, said in a Feb. 1 press release. "The technology will also help current users standardize how structures are measured. In research, interobserver variability exists for any measurement of structures. With the AI standardization of measurements, interobserver reliability problems will now be non-existent."
