Acoustic Standoff

The ATS Acoustic Standoffs (AC) provide a means of scanning superficial structures within the near field and regions where acoustic coupling with conventional acoustics coupling gels alone may be difficult to maintain. The standoffs are composed of flexible low attenuative sonolucent gel, covered with a pliable film. The AC’s are non-disposable, will not leak if punctured. The manufacturing technique utilized to produce the AC’s ensures that the gel adheres to the pliable film, thereby preventing the formation of air bubbles.

The AC’s are available in a choice of thickness ranging from 1.0 to 4.0 cm.

Model AC-1 10 x 15 x 1.0 cm Model AC-3 10 x 15 x 3.0 cm
Model AC-2 10 x 15 x 2.0 cm Model AC-4 10 x 15 x 4.0 cm

Procedure of Use and Cleaning

Prior to use make sure the surface of the standoff is clean. The standoff may be cleaned with a germicidal soap or alcohol. Rinse thoroughly with warm water before using. Apply a generous amount of a high viscosity acoustic coupling gel to both sides of the acoustic standoff prior to beginning the ultrasound examination.
