Things haven't changed much since the first Roman first uttered "Caveat emptor." Buyers still need to beware—this time of transducers that look like Sonosite products but are fakes. In fact, not only are they counterfeit, they're not even compatible with our systems.
When we closely examined some of these fraudulent transducers—which look amazingly similar to ours—they don't have our name on them, and we discovered they were manufactured in China.
Please remember: Only transducers manufactured by Sonosite, and that bear our label, will be compatible with Sonosite systems. And, if you buy products directly from Sonosite, you can always be assured you're getting the real deal.
