I lost my test procedure for performing electrical leakage testing of ultrasound probes. Could you send it to me?

The easiest way to perform electrical leakage testing on a probe is to use your safety analyzer, just as you would to test chassis leakage. Take your lead from the analyzer and submerge it in water (saline is preferred) and then energize the transducer with the ultrasound system. While ensuring the probe is actively firing (system is not in “freeze” etc), submerge the nosepiece of the probe in the water bath.

Then perform a leakage test and the analyzer will then show the leakage of the probe. We use the ATS 539 phantom, which has water dams so you can do phantom scans as well as safety testing fast and efficiently.
