Ultrasound Machines for Surgeries & Hospitals
Ultrasound machines are used in medicine to examine organs and tissue, with the help of sound waves. Sonography is among the image producing procedures, but, unlike x-rays, is not damaging to the tissue. Therefore, pregnant women can unquestionably be examined with the ultrasound.
Sonography is used in various medical disciplines - the most often examined structures are the abdomen, the thyroid gland and the heart. Ultrasoundmachines also come in to use in orthopaedics; especially when examining joints, such as the knee joint or the shoulder joint.
Ultrasound Transducers Send and Receive Wave Impulses
The ultrasound exam is carried out with the help of special ultrasound transducers. These probes are able to generate and perceive ultrasound waves. The principle of sonography is based on the idea that differing tissues also reflect and transmit the contacted wave impulses in a different manner. Tissue with higher echogenicity (e.g. bones) are represented as white, on the monitor, where as tissues with lower echogenicity (e.g. blood) are shown with black surfaces. There are also ultrasound probes that serve gynaecological and rectal examinations, which can be vaginally or rectally inserted to provide a representation of the ovaries and womb, or the anus and rectum, respectively.
Ultrasound Gel & Printers as Accessories for the Ultrasound Machine
A special ultrasound gel is most often used during ultrasound procedures, so as to prevent the reflection of waves from air pockets between the skin and the transducer head. Many ultrasound machines are equipped with printers, which provide a documented printout of the procedure results.
In this category, we offer you a wide range of high-quality ultrasound machines, at great prices. You will find compatible accessories, such as ultrasound transducers, ultrasound gel or video printer paper, in the subcategory Ultrasound Machines and Accessories.
