A basic knowledge of ultrasound physics and instrumentation is vital to ensure the correct application of ultrasound for both diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Understanding the physical attributes of ultrasound waves and how images are generated will enable you to obtain optimum images and thus help to prevent misdiagnosis.
This module (a companion to Ultrasound Physics 2) guides you through introductory ultrasound physics principles including sound waves, attenuation, and transducer function. It contains many illustrations and animations to help you understand important concepts that will help you throughout your sonography career.
Ultrasound Physics 1 is suitable for all practitioners of ultrasound, anyone interested in learning about ultrasound physics. It is a valuable learning resource for anyone getting ready for the ARDMS Sonographic Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) Exam.
The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:
