Overview

Radiologists, sonographers and other healthcare professionals practising ultrasound in a clinical setting should all receive accredited training in the principles and practice of ultrasound scanning, to ensure the safe and effective application of this powerful diagnostic modality. This new 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 explanatory line 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 ideal introductory text for trainee sonographers and radiologists, Diagnostic Ultrasound: Physics and Equipment also provides an invaluable resource for trainee medical physicists and engineers.
