Thomas R Kirkham, Kirsten N Laconte, Michael L Hall, Jonathan E Snyder, Edward S Wallace, William H Phillips Jr, Robert L Petersen Jr: Integral auto-selecting yoke/transducer connector for ultrasound transducer probe. General Electric Company, Dennis M Flaherty, John H Pilarski, April 1, 1997: US05615678 (5 worldwide citation)

An integral yoke/transducer connector has built-in probe switches for detecting when a transducer probe has been removed from its yoke. Based on the status of the probe switch and other feedback information, a system controller activates the out-of-holder probe if it has priority. In this manner, a ...
