The Importance of Ultrasound Gel

Posted October 7th, 2021

When most people think of an ultrasound, the first thing they likely think of is pregnancy. While an ultrasound is certainly used to examine babies, did you know that an ultrasound can be used beyond that? At National Therapy Products Inc., we are an ultrasound gel manufacturer based in Toronto that specializes in products for ultrasound imaging, otherwise known as sonography. Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to create internal pictures of the body to identify areas of swelling, pain and infection.

As a medical device company in Toronto, our ultrasound gels are used to help create a clearer image when performing ultrasound imaging. Ultrasounds are primarily used for pregnant women to also look at a baby’s brain. For some, the most important aspect is also finding out the gender of a baby.

General ultrasounds can also be used to detect breast cancer. While an ultrasound is not the main procedure used to detect the cancer, it is often used alongside with a mammogram to identify any irregular lumps in women’s breasts. Women under the age of 30 are typically recommended to take an ultrasound before a mammogram to detect any irregularities.

Another way in which ultrasounds can be used is to assess an individual’s organs, including the liver and kidney to name a few. This can be helpful in assessing these organs, for example, by performing an ultrasound for the kidney, you will be able to detect any abnormalities or injuries if there are any. Plus, if there are tumors or blockages that are affecting these organs, an ultrasound will be effective.

With all of these uses for an ultrasound, it is beneficial to use gels for better results as these help provide a clearer image during the screening process. As an ultrasound gel manufacturer, we offer a variety of products, with different gels and lotions.

As a registered medical device establishment with Health Canada and the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), we offer products of the highest quality.
