Alpinion transducer technology

ALPINION’s transducer portfolio, supported in Greece and Cyprus by Ippocratis Medical Equipment S.A., includes conventional piezo-ceramic, composite PZT and the latest single crystal materials.
Single crystal material produces broadband frequency response and higher sensitivity, permitting its use in harmonic imaging with minimal loss of the acoustic signal.
It results in more uniform wide-bandwidth imaging and thus offers higher resolution images to the user.
ALPINION has overcome the historic engineering and application limitations in the processing of delicate and expensive single crystal transducer materials through a unique and proprietary fabrication process.
With ALPINION’s high performance single crystal transducer, users acquire broadband images with unparalleled sensitivity.
Through a unique and innovative single crystal transducer processing technology, ALPINION has produced the largest single crystal convex transducer ever fabricated, and the world’s first 3D/4D transducer made with single crystal material.
A single crystal transducer is characterized by a higher energy conversion efficiency and higher sensitivity than conventional piezo-ceramic materials; consequently, single crystal transducers can produce greater uniformity, and stronger penetration.
The attention to ergonomic design extends to the flexible cable and lightweight handle that are standard on all ALPINION transducer products.
Driven by customer requirements, ALPINION has accomplished the following:
• Ergonomic Transducer design with a flexible cable supports pain-free wrist manipulation when imaging.
• Labeling
Fluorescent labels on the transducer enable users to identity the transducer ID easily under subdued lighting conditions.
• 3D/4D transducers
Lightweight 3D/4D transducers with improved detail accuracy by overcoming size limitation and manufacturing difficulties.
