Is there a risk of infection?
Our infection control policies are very stringent and we employ very elaborate procedures for cleaning of the ultrasound probes. Prior to and after each examination the probes are thoroughly cleansed using antiseptic agents. The probes are then placed into a level disinfection device (Trophon) which is considered to be the best currently available method for cleaning ultrasound transducers. Our doctors wear gloves during examinations and disposable probes covers are always used to provide additional protection from infection.
