The physics of ultrasound is a dry but essential part of sonography. This lecture series by  Roger Gent is remarkable in it’s simplicity. It covers

• Physical properties
• Transducer and beamforming concepts
• Knobology/resolution, harmonics
• Image artifacts
• Common errors in sonography caused by inappropriate technical selections/choices
• Doppler – basic physics, colour, artefacts and more
• Bioeffects and safety, 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 than 40 years, with particular interest in paediatric sonography  and the physics of Ultrasound. He has been an invited speaker at more than fifty national and international meetings . 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.
