Study Notes

Ultrasound Machine Components

  • The transducer sends sound waves and receives their echoes in an ultrasound machine.

Ultrasound Transducer Types

  • A convex transducer has a convex beam shape, making it suitable for in-depth examinations.

Ultrasound vs. X-ray

  • The main difference between an X-ray machine and an ultrasound machine is the type of energy used: X-rays use ionizing radiation, while ultrasound machines use high-frequency sound waves.

Ultrasound Machine Functionality

  • The computer in an ultrasound machine processes the received echoes, generating images and performing necessary calculations.

Ultrasound Transducer Characteristics

  • The footprint, frequency, and applications of an ultrasound transducer are determined by factors such as the transducer's size, shape, and material.
