Linear Ultrasound Probes

Linear ultrasound probes are designed for superficial imaging.  Linear ultrasound has higher frequencies than other probes, which provides better resolution and less penetration. Therefore, this probe is ideal for imaging superficial structures and in ultrasound-guided procedures.

Other clinical applications for the linear ultrasound include:

  • Vascular access (central and peripheral)
  • Evaluate for deep venous thrombosis
  • Skin and soft tissue for abscess, foreign body
  • Musculoskeletal—tendons, bones, muscles
  • Appendicitis in thin patients
  • Evaluation of the pleural line for pneumothorax, interstitial fluid
  • Ocular ultrasound
  • Other procedures (arthrocentesis, paracentesis, thoracentesis, …
