Clarius Mobile Health Appoints Dr. Oron Frenkel Medical Advisory Board Chair
Ultrasound company Clarius Mobile Health has named Dr. Oron Frenkel Chairman of its Medical Advisory Board. In his role, Dr. Frenkel will work closely with research and development to ensure Clarius continues to innovate ways in which ultrasound can improve healthcare.
"We're excited to have Dr. Frenkel join us on our mission to improve patient care through the power of high definition medical imaging," said Clarius CEO Laurent Pelissier. "His real-world experience will be invaluable to support our efforts in developing the best handheld ultrasound systems for every medical specialty."
Dr. Frenkel is a specialist emergency physician, and also served on a fellowship in Point-Of-Care Ultrasound at Alameda County Medical Center in Oakland, California. He is currently at the University of British Colombia as an emergency physician and clinical assistant professor, based out of St. Paul's Hospital and the UBC Department of Emergency Medicine.
"Point-of-care ultrasound is the most disruptive technology for clinicians since the stethoscope was invented 200 years ago. The image quality has become amazing and the applications for it are exploding," said Dr. Frenkel. "Physicians are hungry for more rapid answers and definitive clarity on the pathologies their patients present with. Using handheld devices like Clarius at the bedside enables rapid diagnosis of many conditions and better guidance for procedures. I'm on a mission to expand its use."
