When handling the units, remember that they are brittle; therefore, handle them with extreme care When you are done, place the units in the probe holder. To avoid the units falling, make use of wall-mounted holders. You should place them with the lens facing up. Before you connect any ultrasound system to the transducers, inspect them for any damage.
If they are damaged, you shouldn’t use them. Let an expert know about it so that he/she can fix the damage. Some of the most common problems you will find with transducers include: broken probe pins, cable cuts, exposed wires, fluid leaks, surface cracks and many others.
