  • Page 114 Care and Maintenance Generic procedure on probe leakage current The most common method of measuring probe leakage is to partly immerse the probe into a saline bath while the probe is connected to the Ultrasound system and active. This method measures the actual leakage current resulting from the probe RF drive.
