Physics of Ultrasound

Physics of Ultrasound by Roger Gent


This e learning is the entire physics lecture series by  Roger Gent. It covers the physical properties of ultrasound, transducer and beamforming concepts, knobology, resolution and harmonics, image artifacts, common errors in sonography caused by inappropriate technical selections or choices,  Doppler – basic physics, colour, artifacts and more, bioeffects and safety and finally  MI/MT phantoms.

The lectures have been split into small sections accompanied by a brief summary and some multiple choice questions. Much is also taken from his excellent book “Applied Physics and Technology of Diagnostic Ultrasound” available through ASUM.

Roger Gent has had an  involvement in diagnostic ultrasound for more than 40 years, with particular interest in paediatric sonography  and the physics of ultrasound. He has lectured on the physics of ultrasound for many years.  He is the author or co-author of more than seventy articles, has received several awards from professional ultrasound bodies, is an Honorary Fellow of ASUM and was a member of the ASUM DMU Board of Examiners for twenty years. He was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2009, for services to Paediatric Ultrasound.

His lectures are a must for all those sitting ultrasound exams, whether as sonographers (the DMU)  or as doctors (the DDU).
