Written for health practitioners and students new to medical ultrasound, this book provides all the basic physics and technological knowledge they need in order to practise ultrasound effectively, including safety aspects of ultrasound, quality assurance and the latest techniques and developments. Multiple choice questions for self-assessment and as a revision aid Chapter on terminology with explanatory paragraphs of words and phrases used in diagnostic ultrasound Troubleshooting guide - common problems and their solutions explored
All healthcare professionals practising ultrasound in a clinical setting should receive accredited training in the principles and practice of ultrasound scanning. This second edition of Diagnostic Ultrasound: Physics and Equipment provides a comprehensive introduction to the physics, technology and safety of ultrasound equipment, with high quality ultrasound images and diagrams throughout. It covers all aspects of the field at a level intended to meet the requirements of UK sonography courses. New to this edition: • Updated descriptions of ultrasound technology, quality assurance and safety. • Additional chapters dedicated to 3D ultrasound, contrast agents and elastography. • New glossary containing definitions of over 500 terms. The editors and contributing authors are all authorities in their areas, with contributions to the scientific and professional development of ultrasound at national and international level.
An approachable textbook for medical professionals and others learning to use diagnostic ultrasound. This book has been written by a leading ultrasound educator to help medical professionals develop a sound understanding of the physics and technology of ultrasound. It is intended for use either in self-guided study or as a textbook for formal university and professional courses of study.
This Study Guide is a companion to the popular ultrasound physics textbook "The Physics and Technology of Diagnostic Ultrasound: A Practitioner's Guide." It contains over 120 short questions and provides model answers for each. It has been designed for both students and teachers. Students will find it valuable as a learning aid and as a resource to test their knowledge and understanding. Teachers, supervisors and tutors will find it a useful teaching asset and an excellent starting point for writing quiz and exam questions.
The 8th edition of Kremkau's Sonography Principles and Instruments concisely and comprehensively covers the essential aspects of sonography physics and technology, presenting state-of-the-art content in a dynamic, highly visual format. Confidently prepare for the challenges of practice with a clear understanding of how diagnostic sonography works, including Doppler, artifacts, safety, quality assurance, the latest technology, and more. Essential coverage of physics and ultrasound helps you prepare for the ARDMS SPI exam. Straightforward explanations simplify complex content. Key Points highlight the most important information to help you study more efficiently. Learning features such as chapter outlines, learning objectives, bulleted chapter summaries, and a glossary of sonography physics terms make difficult concepts easier to review and understand. End-of-chapter exercises test your knowledge and understanding with a mix of true-or-false, fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, and mathematical questions. A mathematics appendix provides fast, efficient access to a List of Symbols, a Compilation of Equations, and a Mathematics Review. A full-color design depicts more than 200 high-quality ultrasound scans similar to what you'll encounter in the clinical setting. Updated scans from the most current equipment and updated content on 3D imaging, contrast, elastrography, and imaging artifacts provide all the information necessary to be consistent with current technology. Full-color photos of common instruments and control panels familiarize you with the devices you'll use in practice. Updated risk and safety statements help you ensure compliance with current national standards. New outline and presentation of materials reflect the 2009 ARDMS Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) examination.
Providing explanations and drawings that explain the whys of physics as applied to ultrasound, this title includes material on PACS, contrast agents, power Doppler, harmonic imaging, 3D and 4D technology, 1.5D and 2D transducers, and more. It also offers preparation for the physics portion of the ARDMS certification exam.
