A Note from Dr. Sterner:

"During my years in active practice, I developed the idea for a 6 fingered disposable palpation sleeve that accommodates an ultrasound probe. It is intended to be changed between rectals. The idea was sold to and patented by a Danish veterinary company, Kruuse, which manufactures the sleeve. I have a business agreement with this company and receive a royalty for this product which is marketed under the brand name SonoSleeve, and sold in the United States by Jorgensen Laboratories of Loveland, Colorado."
