Effective and safe decontamination of ultrasound machines and transducers

23 March 2020

A best practice summary document and poster have been published to ensure all sonographers can ‘promote, ensure and evidence effective and safe decontamination of ultrasound machines and transducers.’

It includes essential information, terminology, top tips for best practice and links to relevant documents.

“Training should be provided and recorded for all staff involved in any level of decontamination,” the document says.

Ultrasound Transducer Decontamination - Best Practice Summary has been jointly published by the Association of Healthcare Technology Providers for Imaging, Radiotherapy and Care (AXREM), the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS), and the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR).
