Through the development of AI tools, and application specific presets, Clarius Ultrasound Scanners have been finely tuned to the anatomy that is being scanned. The auto-gain technology is on by default, and in most cases, can be left on. In some more difficult patients, disabling the auto-gain will enable a manual 3 slider TGC adjustment to have finer control over the brightness and contrast of structures.
Diagnostic ultrasound images use 256 levels of grey to convey important information about the anatomy inside the body. To ensure that the image has a full dynamic range, the Clarius App automatically adjusts the screen brightness to maximum or near-maximum while using the App.
The majority of mobile device screens are well suited for ultrasound imaging, however in cases where contrast ratios are not consistent with what Clarius has tested, the App contains a screen calibration to fine tune the gray levels. This can be accessed from the Settings page, and it is recommend the calibration value remains between 12 - 14. It is important that all 24 gray bars are visible on the mobile device screen.
