Transducers

ALPINION’s innovation begins with transducer technology

ALPINION’s research and development in medical transducer technology ranges from advanced diagnostic ultrasound transducers – both PZT and single crystal material, innovative and unique processing technology, and application-specific acoustic designs – to treatment transducers specialized for use with HIFU.

In the ultrasound field, ALPINION has developed the largest variety of single crystal transducers, including convex, volume convex and phased array transducers.

Located in Miami, we specialize in all sorts of premium ultrasound equipment.

What Is An Ultrasound Transducer?

An ultrasound transducer converts electrical energy into mechanical (sound) energy and back again, based on the piezoelectric effect. It is the hand-held part of the ultrasound machine that is responsible for the production and detection of ultrasound waves.

The ultrasound transducers differ in construction based on:

  • Piezoelectric crystal arrangement
  • Aperture (footprint)
  • Frequency
They also consists of five main components

Crystal/ceramic Element With Piezoelectric Properties

  • Usually lead zirconate titanate (PZT)
  • May consist of a single component or be a broadband transducer with multiple elements
  • Element thickness is determined by what resonance frequency is desired

Positive and Ground Electrodes on the Faces of the Element

  • This allows for electrical connection
  • A positive electrode is in the back of the element
  • A ground electrode is on the front of the element

Damping (Backing) Block

  • Adhered to the back of the crystal 
  • Absorbs ultrasound energy directed backward and attenuates stray ultrasound signals from the housing 
  • Dampens the resonant vibrations in the element which creates a shorter spatial pulse length; this allows for better axial resolution but higher bandwidth

Matching Layer

  • Interface between the transducer element and the tissue
  • Allows close to 100% transmission of the ultrasound from the element into the tissues by minimizing reflection due to traversing different mediums
  • Achieves this by consisting of layers of material with acoustic impedances that are between soft tissue and transducer material.

Housing

  • electrical insulation and protection of the element
  • includes a plastic case, metal shield, and acoustic insulator
