2 Transducer Handling Transducers should be moved slowly, carefully, without pressure, no sudden movements and with continuous smooth contact with skin. appendix US), for some applications irreplaceable (for DDx), but try to inform or alert child prior to these measures in order to gain cooperation and avoid sudden unexpected frightening experience. Remember to effectively, but gently clean the transducers after each investigation. 24 1 Theory and Basics Fig. 10 Schematic drawing of some organs where US measurements are commonly applied.
2 Environmental Requisites • Proper and comfortable positioning facilities. • Quiet room with sufficient light dimming. • Proper and ergonomic positioning of investigator. • Ergonomic styling of surrounding working area – includes separate reading facility with monitors and separate sitting area for consultation with patients and parents. NOTE: Sufficient chairs must be available, as there are usually more people than just the patient. • Proper room temperature with additional heating available for neonates and infants.
Become only necessary in rare cases: • Presets usually selected by deciding on certain investigation category – o ptimised towards dedicated queries. 22 1 Theory and Basics NOTE: May become necessary to change presets during one examination, for example during abdominal US, you may need conventional abdominal, pelvic and intestinal or vascular presets. 1 General Remarks Transducer needs vary – depending on targeted area and patient age. Proper transducer selection is essential to achieve good results with diagnostic quality: • Particularly important in paediatrics with vast range of size and ages as well as targeted areas that demand a variety of transducers.
