Show synopsis This book clearly explains how to properly handle artifacts, scan safely, and evaluate instrument performance, while also helping students prepare for registry and board examinations in diagnostic ultrasound. Essential topics in physics and ultrasound have been updated to include the latest imaging techniques, innovations in instrumentation, and cutting-edge scanning technology. Information is presented in a dynamic, visual format, with boxes, tables, and over 1,000 illustrations. This edition contains new and expanded material on contrast agents, harmonic imaging, coded excitation, panoramic imaging, spatial compounding, 3-D imaging, and electronic storage and communication of images external to the diagnostic instruments. Reorganized, rewritten material reflects the digital beam-forming, signal-processing, and image-processing functions of modern instruments.
