Bacteriologic flora on diagnostic ultrasonic transducers.

Abstract

In a study to determine the presence of bacteria on ultrasonic transducers, the authors found micro-organisms in 82% of cultures. The results show that 70% isopropyl alcohol is not a consistently effective germicide for the sterilization of transducers. The presence of bacteria, however, appears to be of little clinical consequence.
