Portuguese translation:mechanical sector scanner - ultrasonic transducer
Explanation:
First of all let me apologize for being En<>En ,yet I hope it helps.
A diagnostic ultrasonic transducer is made trough a mechanical sector scanner.
It is a device made of plezoelectric material that converts electrical signals into acoustic signals and acoustic signals into electrical ones, and intend for use in diagnostic ultrasonic medical device.
Have a nice work

Explanation:
Mechanical sector array transducers contain one (up to three) crystal that sweep or rotate the crystal back and forth across the window of the transducer housing to generate a sector (pie-shaped) image on the video screen. Mechanical sector scanners are the least expensive of the transducer types and offer a small “footprint” (the area of patient/transducer contact needed to create an image). Because they are mechanical, they will wear with time. Electronic array transducers are comprised of a multitude of crystals in an array, with no moving parts. These transducers may have a flat surface (linear array) or a curved face (convex or microconvex). Linear array transducers create a rectangular image and are most useful for near-field work such as equine tendons or transrectally for reproductive work in farm animals. The large surface area of patient contact makes them cumbersome and less useful in small animal applications. Microconvex transducers offer the most flexibility and resolution for use in abdominal imaging. Phased array transducers are a type of electronic transducer, used principally for cardiac imaging. Annular array transducers are yet another type of transducer, utilizing both electronic and mechanical components.
