Title: CABLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR CART-BORNE ULTRASONIC DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING SYSTEMS
Abstract:
A wheel-mounted,cart-borne ultrasound system has a plurality of probe connector ports and multiple probe holders which permit a number of ultrasound probes to be connected to the ultrasound system at the same time. A removable cable support is connected to the ultrasound system at an attachment end and supports a probe cable with a cable clip at its other end. In one example the attachment end comprises a clip which removably clips onto the handle of the ultrasound system. In another example the attachment end comprises a magnet which magnetically attaches the cable support below the control panel of the ultrasound system. In other examples the intermediate portion of the cable support comprises an elastic or inelastic strap.
