Ultrasound Transducers for Sonography of Various Tissues
An ultrasound transducer, also known as an ultrasound probe, is able to send out and receive ultrasound waves. The transmitted ultrasound waves are cast onto various tissues and reflected. The returned signals are converted into electrical impulses, which are represented as image points on the ultrasound machine.
Sector, Linear or Convex Transducers for Specific Examinations
Ultrasound transducers are differentiated between sector, linear and convex probes. Each transducer is made for a different examination. For example, linear transducers are made for examining the thyroid, while convex transducers are especially good for general examinations (of the abdomen, etc.).
In addition to these types of ultrasound transducers, there are also special transducers that are designed for exams from inside the body. For example, the gynaecological ultrasound exam is preferred as an intravaginal procedure so as to represent the ovaries and womb as accurately as possible. Therefore, the vaginal ultrasound transducer is rod shaped so that it can enter the vagina as naturally as possible. As a rule, protective wraps are used on the transducer for vaginal ultrasounds. In addition to the vaginal transducer, there are also rectal transducers and TEE ultrasound probes.
