Components manufactured with piezocomposite materials offer improvements over traditional transducer materials, which result in increased acoustic performance for medical applications, including medical imaging and Doppler blood flow equipment. These piezoelectric composite materials reduce the cross coupling that typically occurs between different modes in the ceramic of conventional transducers, enabling medical components to respond in a more precise and predictable manner. Additionally, components manufactured with the piezoelectric composite materials reduce spurious activity, offering higher transmit and receive efficiency.
