PHYSICS PRINCIPLES

PHYSICS PRINCIPLES

This course begins with preliminary theoretical lessons that cover a broad range of ultrasound physics. We present the importance of understanding the physical basis and instrumentation of sonography. The lessons will focus on the following learning objectives:

  • to know the ultrasound physics and technology
  • to identify the sonographic patterns of different tissues
  • to recognize and explain common artefacts
  • to describe ultrasound images using adequate vocabulary
  • to select appropriate transducers and equipment settings
  • to know the frequencies used in medical ultrasound and the effects on image quality and penetration

At the end of this module 1 the clinician will become familiar with ultrasound machines.
