The basic operation of ultrasound transducers is simple. They emit sound waves of extremely high frequency and their echoes to calculate the dimensions, rate of growth and site of the irregularity in our body which is not visible to us with our naked eyes. Also, the condition and sex determination of a child inside the mother’s womb is made possible by them. They are generally found in a doctor’s clinic or pathological center and is used by expert professionals. They consist of a number of parts and we should have a detailed knowledge about all of them.
The display is a significant part of the ultrasound transducers. The data as received and processed by the processors and the software respectively is converted into visual data which is displayed on the monitor. Based on the resolution of the monitor, the sharpness and clarity of the image varies. Sensor probe is another significant part of them. It is the eyes and ears of the transducers. They are responsible for the sending and receiving of the signals. As the desired organ or defect is struck, the fluctuation occurs in the receiving signals which are correctly acknowledged by it. It passes on the data to the CPU.
The CPU of the ultrasound transducers has a very important function. On receiving the reverted sound waves from the probe, the CPU uses software to understand them and then produces a succession of images that is analyzed by the doctors to know more about the anomaly. Keyboards are also present which allows the doctor to input special information about the patients and get a more specific knowledge about them. It may happen that certain data about the patient, his treatment, signs of illness and cure may need to be stored for future uses. Thus, the ultrasound transducers also have hard is storage facilities to stack up the records. A printer and video recorder is also found in them.
