Many treatments are performed over a hydrogel sheet or semipermeable film dressing. The purpose of this in vitro study was to examine the effectiveness of 4 hydrogels (Nu-Gel, ClearSite, Aquasorb Border, and CarraDres) and 4 film dressings (CarraSmart Film, J&J Bioclusive, Tegaderm, and Opsite Flexigrid) in ultrasound transmission.
