Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors using their experienced background in ultrasound education have provided a concise overview of ultrasound physics and instrumentation to the new ultrasound user in a simple and clear manner. For the postgraduate ultrasound student the book can be a useful complement in aiding comprehension of the principles of physics and instrumentation...This would be a useful reference book in the clinical department." Becky Mulloy, Lecturer City University

"The illustrations, diagrams and tables are simple, clear and well-labelled. I also feel that this text may contain more supporting ultrasound images than some of its rivals, and again these are of high quality and likely to be appreciated by the student... I think this very affordable hardback is written in such a clear and concise manner that it makes essential reading alongside some of the more expensive heavyweights. I would therefore strongly recommend it."Ultrasound, May 2010
