Philips Affinity x-5 probe

Echocardiography

 

 

Learn More

The Ultrasound transducer, also called a probe is a device that produces sound waves that bounce off body tissues and make echoes.  The transducer receives the echoes and sends them to a computer that creates an image.   

Used in echocardiography, the probe uses sound waves to create pictures or video of the inside of the heart. This type of test may be done to check the function of the heart muscle, check heart valves for leaking or narrowing and look for possible causes of stroke.
