Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is an excellent text which provides a valuable resource to support the teaching of ultrasound physics, instrumentation and safety for all those involved in the teaching, training and practice of ultrasound. It is also an ideal core text for all healthcare professionals undertaking ultrasound training and is very highly recommended.' Julie Walton, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Medicine, University of Liverpool

'A fantastic reference book for Part I IPEM Medical Physics trainees. Easy to read and very clear explanations. Very very useful.' Annette Paton, University Hospitals Bristol, Radiotherapy Physics Unit

'When the first edition of this book was published in 2002 … it did indeed fill the gap in the market for a comprehensive readable account of the physics and technology underpinning diagnostic ultrasound. It has become the standard text for many ultrasound courses and many of us use it as source material for teaching. Eight years later, there is still a need for a text to clarify the numerous 'technological advances' with which manufacturers now litter their machines. This edition fulfils that most admirably … This reviewer found it very difficult to come up with some sensible substantial negative comments. That is probably because this is an excellent book, it dills a major gap in the field (previously only filled by the first edition) and it is a major contribution to the education and instruction of ultrasound practitioners whatever their background. It works admirably both as a textbook and as a reference volume.' Ultrasound
