Ultrasound Transducer Decontamination – Best Practice Summary

23 March, 2020
Topics: Ultrasound


This best practice summary has been developed from the national and international guidelines and articles published over the last 5 years. It is intended to provide users of ultrasound with the information and general principles required to promote, ensure and evidence effective and safe decontamination of ultrasound machines and transducers.

This summary is primarily related to transducer and ultrasound machine decontamination. Whilst this is important, it is not the only consideration in the overall protection of patients from infection. Consideration should also be given to all equipment and consumables, but this sits outside the remit of this summary.

All hyperlinks were correct and active at the time of publication. When using the hyperlinks, if you are aware that any are no longer working then we would welcome notification via emal. Thanks
