Key Points When Investing in Ultrasound Machines

There are several things that need to be considered when you are about to invest in a refurbished ultrasound system. Below we have highlighted some important aspects and described the key points:

  • Ultrasound applications – what is ultrasound used for?
  • Important specifications
  • What type of probes do I need?
  • Ultrasound prices – How much does ultrasound machines cost?
  • What is the difference between used, refurbished, and remanufactured?

Ultrasound Applications

Medical ultrasound is also called sonography. It is an imaging technique that uses high frequency sound waves to generate live images. Ultrasound can be described as non-ionizing radiation, in contrast to examinations with; for instance, X-ray or CT. At LBN Medical we sell a wide range of imaging equipment, including ultrasound machines with matching ultrasound probes.
Ultrasound is used in a number of clinical settings. These are grouped below, and some of the specific uses are found in more than one group. Click each category to learn more.

Abdominal

Abdominal ultrasound is used to examine the internal organs such as the liver, gallbladder, spleen, and kidneys. It is also possible to examine some of the blood vessels supplying these organs, like the aorta. Abdominal ultrasounds are performed for a number of reasons. It could be to find the cause of abdominal pain, kidney infections, diagnose tumours, or to look for gallstones, or kidney stones.

Musculoskeletal

Ultrasound examination shows the muscles, tendons, and the surface of the bones, but has difficulty penetrating bone. It is used to diagnose tears in tendons or muscles, sprains or tears of ligaments, or other changes in these tissues.

Small parts

Small parts cover the thyroid, breast, and scrotum. These types of ultrasound exams are often performed to investigate a palpable enlargement or lump. The examination determines the location of the lump and whether it is a cyst or a soft tissue nodule. They are also used to guide needle biopsies.

Urological

Ultrasound examinations of the urological system are evaluating kidneys, bladder, the urinary tract, and, in men, the prostate. It enables the assessment of the shape and size of the different organs, and detection of kidney stones, cysts, and other abnormalities.

Vascular

Ultrasound examinations performed of the vascular system, the veins and arteries. A Doppler ultrasound allows the assessment of blood flow in most parts of the body. This allows the identification of thrombosis, aneurysms, or other abnormalities.

OB/GYN

In gynaecology an ultrasound examination produces images of the organs of the female pelvis, including the uterus, vagina, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. It can be transabdominal or endovaginal. It is performed to assess the size, shape, and position of the orgnas, thickness of the tissues, and to look for masses, or other types of abnormalities.
In obstetrics the use of ultrasound exams include the confirmation of pregnancy, determining the gestational age, location of the placenta, and the diagnosis of a number of foetal malformations.

Abdominal

Abdominal ultrasound is used to examine the internal organs such as the liver, gallbladder, spleen, and kidneys. It is also possible to examine some of the blood vessels supplying these organs, like the aorta. They are performed for a number of reasons, including finding the cause of abdominal pain, kidney infections, diagnose tumours, or to look for gallstones and kidney stones.

Cardiac

Cardiac ultrasound is also called echocardiogram. It is used to look at the size, shape, and motion of the heart and to examine the associated vessels. There are more specialised examinations including contrast echocardiogram, that is more invasive as the contrast solution is injected, and transoesophageal echocardiogram.
Cardiac ultrasounds are performed for a variety of reasons, to evaluate a heart murmur, to look for clots or changes in the structure of the heart, the valve or the surroundings, and to assess motion or blood flow.

Vascular

Ultrasound examinations performed of the vascular system, the veins and arteries. A Doppler ultrasound allows the assessment of blood flow in most parts of the body. This allows the identification of thrombosis, aneurysms, and other abnormalities.

Biopsies

Ultrasound examinations are frequently used for guided needle biopsies. This allows a visual of the needle and the tissue that is examined, offering precision. It is often used for breast, lymph node, and liver biopsies.

Paediatric and neonatal

Paediatric and neonatal use of ultrasound are similar to that of the adult, in the different medical specialties. In neonatal it is also often used to produce pictures of the brain and examine the cerebrospinal fluid. In small children ultrasound examinations can in some cases replace X-ray.

Transcranial

A transcranial ultrasound is also called an echoencephalogram. It produces images of the brain and cerebrospinal fluid. Ultrasound waves does not easily penetrate bone, and therefore this is most common in infants. In adults the most common is a transcranial Doppler examination that shows the blood flow through the major vessels of the brain. It isused to diagnose emboli, stenosis or other vascular abnormalities and to monitor the blood flow during surgery.

Some ultrasound machines function in a wide range of applications, and these are said to have shared use.

Important Specifications

When looking at refurbished or used ultrasound machines it is important to keep in mind that the different systems have different specifications. If you have specific needs, these are some of the key features that you should pay attention to.
The license keys determine the options for use on the ultrasound system. Some machines are sold as full option, therefore no license keys are needed. However, most ultrasound systems have the options installed only for the specified use of that particular system, typically one or two. Then license keys are necessary to unlock more options, like 4D mode.
The ports are where the ultrasound probes are plugged in. Hereby the number of ports determines the number of probes that can be attached to the machine simultaneously. This matters if the machine is to have use for different applications, as they would most likely need different probes.
The age of the system is important as older systems might be missing features or technical specifications that newer system have. GE machines are divided into BT versions that reveal their age, as for instance BT 08 was launched in 2008.
The condition may vary greatly, even with products of the same age. It often depends on service and use, and the extent of the general wear and tear of everyday use.
Peripherals, or accessories, are the things that can be brought alongside the machine, like biopsy kits, foot stretches or printers. If a colour printer is important for the everyday use, then it is given that one should buy an ultrasound machine where a colour printer is available.

What Types of Probes Do I Need?

First of all, it is very important to keep in mind that the probe must be compatible with the specific type of ultrasound system. Please ask our professional sales team if you need help with matching transducers to ultrasound machines.

Footprint and frequency 

Probe characteristics are influenced by footprint and frequency.The footprint also called aperture, is the area that will be in contact with the skin. The frequency is directly related to the penetration depth of the sound waves. The high frequencies are best for superficial examinations, and are preferred for guiding vascular access or regional anaesthesia. In contrast, the lower frequencies are able to penetrate more tissue allowing examinations of structures located more deeply. However, high frequencies provide better resolution of images than low frequencies.

The shape of the transducer, or the piezoelectric crystal arrangement, determines the optimal use of the probes. The most common are linear, curved, and sector, but there are others as well. See a description of the different shapes below, or click to see more info on ultrasound probes.

 

Probe Types

linear probe for ultrasound machineThe footprint size is large and the frequency high (7 – 18Mhz). The shape of the beam is rectangular and the near field resolution good.
Typically used for superficial examinations of vascular, small parts, nerve, musculoskeletal, and breast.
Convex probe for ultrasound machineAlso called curved probes. The footprint is large and the frequency low (2.5 – 5Mhz). The beam shape is convex. Good for in depth examinations, although the image resolution decreases when depth increases.
Typically used for abdominal, vascular, nerve, musculoskeletal and GYN/OBS exams.
There is a subtype called micro convex with a much smaller footprint, which is typically used in neonatal and paediatrics.
Phased array probe for ultrasound machineAlso called sector probe. It has a small footprint and low frequency (2 – 8Mhz). It has a narrow beam point, which can expand depending on the applied frequency. The beam shape is almost triangular and the near field resolution is poor.
Typically used for acoustic windows in the cranium or intercostal spaces.
Pencil probeAlso called CW Doppler probe. It is used for measuring blood movement and sound. It has a small footprint and uses low frequency (typically 2 – 8Mhz).
Internal probe for ultrasound machineIncludes a range of internal ultrasound probes, designed to fit in orifices for specific purposes. For instance endovaginal, endorectal, and endocavity. They typically have small footprints and the frequency vary in the middle range (3.5 – 11.5Mhz).
The transoesophageal probe produce images of the heart through the oesophagus. It also has a small footprint and a middle frequency (3 – 10Mhz)
In addition there is a number of probes that are designed for surgical use, like laparoscopic probes.

How Much Does an Ultrasound Machine Cost?

Of course the prices of ultrasound machines vary a lot. They are dependent on several factors like age, condition, features, and type of system. Here we are providing some insight, by establishing three general ranges of ultrasound prices. They are each described through examples of age, models, and price.

All three categories include quality brands like GE, Siemens, Philips, and Toshiba. They are all in good conditions, but have different options and features. Therefore the price for an ultrasound system is mostly dependent on the new price of the system. All machines are tested and cleaned before they are sent out, to make sure they are fully functional.

Ultrasound Price Matrix

Check out our video, presenting an ultrasound price matrix, where the price is defined by model of the system, whether it is low-tier, mid-tier, or high-tier systems, and on the condition, whether it is new, refurbished or used.

 

 

Difference Between Used, Refurbished, and OEM Refurbished

The main differences between used, refurbished, and OEM refurbished ultrasound machines are the condition and the price. Here we describe the difference between the three terms. For a more thorough explanation see our blog post on the subject.

 

Used Equipment

Used equipment is a broad category. Some companies merely move the systems, and they are sold “as is”. Options and configurations will be the same as the previous owner had. However, at LBN Medical all equipment, including used, is as a minimum cleaned, disinfected, and tested by our professional technicians. They repair or replace parts if necessary, and they can fit the options and the configurations to the customer’s needs. Some in the industry may call this refurbished – so always ask what has been done to the system before you buy.

 

Refurbished Equipment

Some call this category “seller refurbished”. It describe a system that has been through a specific and systematic process, that follows a checklist. This may contain cosmetic aspects, like cleaning and painting, and functionality, like parts replacement and additional options.
As it follows the list, fully functional parts could be replaced. However, the checklist is defined by the companies, so always ask what their process include.
At LBN Medical we do offer refurbished systems. We change parts, paint add options, and more, but often based on the customer’s specific budget and needs.

 

OEM Refurbished Equipment

OEM refurbishment is a complete and heavier ISO process and is controlled by the original manufacturer of the system. It is a very detailed process, that ensures that most parts are replaced and software is upgraded. Only the best units with clean service records will be selected for the process. With refurbished you will get high quality at an attractive price, and it is a good alternative to new equipment.

LBN Medical have had ISO certification 13485 since 2009. Partnerships with various OEMs has been a great source of experience and best practice that we apply to all products.

 

In the end it comes down to needs and budget. Therefore many users seek advice from companies like LBN Medical, who are able to provide guidance and offer all three types of imaging equipment.
