Do I need ultrasound gel to do scans?
Yes, you will need ultrasound gel to do any scanning. Ultrasound waves have difficulty traveling through the air and ultrasound gel is used to reduce the air between the contact point and the probes, reducing the reflection and allowing for a clearer image. For your convenience, we also offer, fine ultrasound gel.
How do I sterilize and clean the probes?
After each use of the probe, use a lint-free cloth moistened with water or any ultrasound cleaning wipe to remove the ultrasound transmission gel from the probe. Make sure to turn off the probe and wipe the body of the probe down with a sanitized wipe for one (1) minute until visibly clean. We strongly recommend SonoWipes, which are made from non-harsh chemicals that will preserve the lifespan of your valuable investment.
