Ultrasound Machines and Accessories
An ultrasound machine is a medical diagnostic device that is used for non-invasive examination of a patient's organs and structures. The functionality of an ultrasound machine is based on an imaging technique that uses ultrasonic sound waves that are non-damaging to the patient. These waves are generated by a device called a transducer (sometimes also known as a probe) which emits the sound waves, captures the reflected echoes and transmits the information back to the machine, where the result is visually reconstructed on a monitor in real time. Ultrasound gel is the only other accessory that is often required for this standard point-of-care procedure.
Ultrasound gel helps the transducer glide across the patient's examined region. This gel is typically either light blue or colourless and often conductive, which supports high-quality signal transmission. In the ultrasound category, we offer you a wide selection of ultrasound transmission gel, such as the gel from Aquasonic. This gel is available in sterile and non-sterile versions and in various bottle sizes. Furthermore, this non-irritating, non-sensitizing viscous gel is bacteriostatic and hypoallergenic, meaning it is great for use on patients with sensitive skin.
Ultrasound transducers are essential to ultrasonography. Regardless of if you are using a portable ultrasound machine or a stationary device, it is impossible to carry out the exam without a transducer. A transducer comes in many shapes and emits in different frequency ranges depending on the patient and exam situation. In our online shop, you will find an extensive selection of transducers, including doppler, micro-convex, linear, rectal, vaginal transducers and many more. Whether you need a convex probe or phased array we have the probe you need.
Medical Imaging with the Ultrasound System
Medical imaging is carried out with a variety of different imaging systems such as an X-ray machine or with an MRI, depending on the type of scan you are trying to achieve. The ultrasound machine has a variety of clinical applications in orthopaedics, gynaecology, obstetrics and urology as well as in other areas. In terms of obstetrics, sonography not only provides detection of various disorders or potential complications with the baby, but it also allows the foetus to be viewed in the mother's womb throughout the various stages of development.
In terms of a diagnostic ultrasound, an M-mode ultrasound would be used for scanning blood vessels to measure the diameter or heart rate, while a B-mode ultrasound would be used for scanning organs or small parts to locate tumours or other anomalies.
Conveniently Purchase a Wide Range of Ultrasound Equipment
In the ultrasound category, we supply you with various ultrasound equipment from name brand manufacturers like GE, Mindray or Chison. Unlike stationary ultrasound devices, a portable ultrasound system can be carried to various areas of the facility or used on house calls; we supply both.
Although most ultrasound images are displayed in 2-D, there are also 3-D ultrasound imaging devices available. With a 3-D ultrasound machine, examined structures can be represented in a three dimensional manner. These ultrasound machines usually come into use for prenatal diagnostics in order to give the mother the opportunity to "properly view" her baby.
To compliment your ultrasound machine, you will also find ultrasound transponders, trolleys, carrying cases and even a couch roll to fit your exam table or gynaecology chair. As a cost effective sonography consumable, we provide you with various types of ultrasound gel. Whether you need a fetal doppler, a state-of-the-art ultrasound system or simple ultrasound gel, we have the ultrasound solution for you.
