Ultrasound Probes Description:

In the MedWOW’s catalog, Ultrasound Probes is described as follows:
An ultrasound probe is the handheld component of an ultrasound machine that produces sound waves and receives echos.
The above ads list companies that sell and / or service Ultrasound Probes.

Ultrasound Probes may also be referred to as:

Ultrasound Sensors | Ultrasound Transducers

Ultrasound Probes can be found under the following headings:


Tips for buying Ultrasound Probes

  • In gastroenterology, doctors can view the abdomen using an ultrasound probe to view organs such as the aorta, pancreas, gall bladder, kidneys, liver and spleen.
  • Arterial ultrasound probe is used by cardiologists to check for possible obstructions in the arteries, or to diagnose DVT.
  • Another use for ultrasound machines is for more detailed images of the tendons, nerves, muscles, ligaments and other soft tissue areas that may have been affected by injury or trauma.
  • Gynecologists may perform a pelvic sonogram using an ultrasound probe to view an image of the pelvic floor in women and diagnose any abnormalities.
  • Urologists often use ultrasound transducers to detect the level of fluid that is in a patient's bladder.
  • Emergency medical technicians often use a form of ultrasound probe. Also, it is used in the ER as a routine method of quickly assessing the cause of a patient's abdominal pain.
  • Echocardiography, which is basically an ultrasound that shows the movement of the heart as the muscle dilates and contracts.
  • 7. There are many new applications being discovered all the time for ultrasound transducers. For example: Carotid ultrasonography is used to assess blood flow into the carotid arteries, as well as the intra-cerebral arteries.
  • Intravascular ultrasound probes
  • Laparoscopic ultrasound probes
  • Endovaginal ultrasound probes
  • Endocavity ultrasound probes
  • Real time 4D ultrasound probes
  • Convex ultrasound probes
  • Phased array ultrasound probes
  • 6. The most used types of ultrasound probes are: Linear ultrasound probes
  • Veterinary ultrasound units
  • Ophthalmology ultrasound
  • Small particles scanners
  • Transcranial Doppler systems
  • Muscoskeletal ultrasound machines
  • 3D ultrasound
  • Vascular ultrasound machines
  • Urology ultrasound machines
  • Abdominal ultrasound machines
  • Cardiac ultrasound systems
  • OB/GYN ultrasound machines
  • 1. Modern diagnostic ultrasonography uses probes containing an acoustic ultrasound transducer (or several transducers) to send pulses of ultrasound into matter. Whenever the mechanical wave encounters a border between two different materials (different acoustic impedance) some energy is reflected back to the ultrasound transducer. This echo is detected by the ultrasound probe. The time it takes for the echo to travel back to the ultrasound probe is electronically measured and used to calculate, as well as to display, the depth of the tissue. 2. The frequencies used for medical ultrasonography are generally in the range of 1 to 15 MHz. Higher frequencies have a lower wavelength, producing images with a greater resolution. However, the attenuation of the wave is increased at higher frequencies, so in order to better penetrate deeper tissues, a lower frequency (3-5MHz) is be used. 3. Ultrasound transducers produce images of muscle and soft tissue, useful for delineating boundaries between solid and fluid- filled spaces. It provides live images, enabling operators to select the most useful sections for rapid diagnoses. It shows the structure and function of internal organs. Ultrasound probes provide a useful way to examine the musculoskeletal system to detect problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. Ultrasound probes also assist in identifying blockages, stenosis, and other vascular abnormalities. 4. Modern, high-class ultrasound probe systems use the best transducers technology, which is coupled with excellent processors and a user friendly user interface. The image quality depends mainly on the ultrasound transducer, which is the front end that transmits and receives the mechanical energy. Modern ultrasound transducers give users unparalled and unsurpassed multi-modality ultrasound experience. 5. The most common ultrasound applications are: Portable ultrasound machines
