Other than gain, two of the most important controls on any ultrasound system are frequency and focal zones. These parameters help determine the resolution and depth of penetration, as well as place anatomy in a specified focal field for optimal viewing.
The Clarius Scanner eliminates the need for users to adjust frequency and focal zones by making internal adjustments based on the depth selected by the user. By simply sliding up or down on the image, the imaging depth will change and automatically optimize the image for the selected view.
For a short video tutorial, please visit our Clarius Classroom on how to change depth.
While live imaging, you can adjust the depth of the scan.
Make sure you are using B-Mode and default zoom.
Drag your finger up and down the left vertical bar to increase and decrease the depth. The screen displays a depth scale, in centimeters. The increments of the scale depend on the depth and size of the display.
