Sonography Principles and Instruments 9th edition

This Sonography Principles and Instruments 9th edition book is intended for sonography students, allied-health personnel, and physicians who seek understanding of the principles and instrumentation of diagnostic sonography. Applying these underlying principles in practice improves the quality of medical care involving sonography. The best sonographers and image interpreters understand these principles and apply them in their practice.

The purpose of this book is to explain how contemporary diagnostic sonography works. It serves as a principles textbook in sonography educational programs and helps readers handle artifacts properly, scan safely, and prepare for registry and board examinations. The content of the book is driven by the author’s assessment of contemporary technology in the field and his experience in teaching this material in the medical-school classroom and at conferences and seminars. The Sonography Principles and Instruments 9th edition book does not describe how to perform diagnostic examinations or how to interpret the results.

Other Elsevier books cover these topics. Although this latest edition includes newer developments in the field, the emphasis is on the fundamentals. For the sake of beginners, the text is simplified, yet at the same time it maintains its integrity and usefulness for more experienced users. Although the Sonography Principles and Instruments 9th edition book is designed for non-physicist and non-engineering readers, digestion of the material will require some effort. Admittedly, for such readers, the material can be difficult. It cannot be made easy for everyone and still maintain the necessary level for appropriate application in practice.

However, 40 years of lecturing and publication experience have convinced the author that the material can be understood with reasonable preparation and effort on the part of the student. It is assumed that the student has completed courses in basic physics (including mechanics, waves, and electricity) and mathematics (including algebra, trigonometry, and statistics), which are normal prerequisites in sonography programs. The following
topics are not covered in this Sonography Principles and Instruments 9th edition textbook: the history of the development of sonography, therapy applications, and
investigational techniques.
