Probes, Ultrasonic

Definition : Probes designed to transmit ultrasonic energy to and receive energy from a patient when connected to an ultrasonic device that includes a radiofrequency generator (e.g., echocardiograph, ultrasonic scanner). These probes typically consist of an enclosure (housing), with ultrasonic transducers (typically piezoelectric) that convert electrical signals into ultrasonic signals and vice versa and an integral cable to transmit and receive the electrical signal to and from the ultrasonic equipment. Ultrasonic probes are frequently placed on the skin after an acoustic coupling gel has been applied; dedicated probes intended for specific ultrasonic equipment and/or applications are also available.
