Intelect® Ultrasound Gel from Chattanooga is designed to enhance the quality of the coupling between the ultrasound transducer head and your patient’s skin. It will increase the conductivity of the soundwaves passing into his or her tissues and enhance the quality of the images generated. It is water soluble for greater conductivity, and its non greasy non staining formulation increases patient comfort and convenience.
This gel is designed to create a tight bond between your patient’s skin and the ultrasound probe or transducer. Air bubbles in particular will tend to degrade the quality of this bond and, with it, the accuracy of the images produced. As dry skin tends to have a significant amount of air bubbles, the use of an ultrasound machine on it will tend to produce images of relatively poor quality. The gel moisturizes the skin and reduces or eliminates air pockets or bubbles.
Static will also degrade the quality of the transmission and the Intelect® Ultrasound Gel is designed to also reduce its impact.
The qualities of this gel also allow it to be used in other applications. For example, you can use it with a fetal Doppler to listen to the heart beats of an unborn child (or to allow parents to do the same).
One 5L container. Includes an empty 250ml bottle for easy refilling. Product weight: 4.1 kg.
