The Importance of Ultrasound Gels

Ultrasound gels are placed on a patient’s skin at the beginning of an ultrasound procedure or exam. Ultrasound gels serve several purposes including its use in a variety of procedures, treatments, and routine exams.

Ultrasound technology works by sending a pulse of high-frequency sound waves into the patient’s tissue using an ultrasound transducer or probe.  The ultrasound gel is placed on a patient’s skin and the transducer carefully glides the gel across the patient’s body. This device sends and receives sound waves which are transmitted to a computer screen for a sonographer to view. The computer screen monitor captures real-time imaging of the patient’s internal organs, also allowing for a screen shot image in case a printout is needed.
