Multiple delamination defects on US probe

Case contributed by Bálint Botz
Diagnosis not applicable


Routine assessment. Prior cord damage suspected.

With the standard depth setting the in-air reverberation pattern and its impurities are hard to appreciate. After setting the depth to the minimum and increasing gain multiple darker bands become visible indicating delamination either due to weak piezo elements or cable damage.
