Good User Review: “What I like most about Clarius is that it works with my iPhone—my own personal device. I don’t have to use some company’s proprietary tablet, and I don’t have to go out and buy an Android; I can use the device that I’m already using.” — Dr. Nathaniel Reisinger on Twitter

Limitations: This app is dependent on the possession of a Clarius ultrasound scanner.

Alternatives: This portable imaging technology is very unique to this app. However, there are other ultrasound-related apps with different purposes, such as the educational and resource apps like SonoAccess Ultrasound App or One Minute Ultrasound.
