Global Ultrasound Gel Market is segmented based on type, application, and region. Ultrasound gel is a type of conductive medium that allows a tight bond between skin and the probe or transducer; this is mainly because ultrasound waves don’t travel very well through air. Ultrasound gel is formed using propylene glycol, water, and a dye. The ultrasound gel is clear and thick, and sticky so when applied to the skin it doesn’t drop.
Prominent factors that are playing major role in the growth of Ultrasound Gel Market are, real-time imaging, cheaper, easy to handle or use and less harmful as compared to other imaging methods. Whereas, factors that are restraining market growth are, ultrasound gels cooling effect which makes the patient uncomfortable when applied on skin.
The ultrasound gel uses basic physics principle where the acoustic energy from the ultrasound head through an aqueous or watery medium is passed to the tissue without crossing through the air at any point. It acts as a coupling medium when applied on the surface of the patient’s skin. Aquasonic 100, Sterile Aquasonic 100, Aquasonic Clear, SCAN Ultrasound Gel, Polysonic Ultrasound Lotion are few examples of ultrasound gel that are used widely.To confirm perfect sound transmission best ultrasonic medial which is free of air bubbles is used.
