How to Avoid Damaging Your Ultrasound Probe?
Firstly, keep in mind that you should use your probes with caution to ensure that they continue working at their best. And when working with probes, you should consider a number of precautions. For example, putting protective bags around the probe head or attaching safety-wires to the probe to prevent them from falling to the floor.
There are also measures that you should not only consider, but strictly follow - never use alcohol-containing disinfectants as they dry out the probe's lens.
In addition, never bend or twist the cable, as there are 128-320 small wires, and each has a connection to a crystal. If these wires are torn apart, the signal of your probe will decrease considerably or even disappear completely. And do not forget that rough and careless handling of the probe is never covered by any guarantee.
