Eco-Med EcoGel 100® Imaging Ultrasound Gel has ultra low viscosity of between 35,000 and 45,000 centipoise. It is appropriate for diagnostic imaging and other external procedures requiring a a thin medium. Some technicians prefer a thinner gel. There are also some procedures for which a thinner gel is a better match. For example, technicians may prefer a thinner gel for OB GYN imaging or when performing other procedures that involve taking images of large surface areas. For larger surface areas, a lower viscosity gel will reduce the “snow plow” effect often seen when using higher viscosity gels.
Although EcoGel 100® Imaging Ultrasound Gel is a thin gel, it does not sacrifice anything where conductivity is concerned. Its low viscosity also helps to generate clearer images. This is a result of its suitability for use in thinner layers. Thinner layers will minimize the incidence of air bubbles being trapped under the surface.
The gel is supplied in 2 sizes. You can buy it in 8 oz bottles or as easy to squeeze cubes accompanied by dispenser bottles.
