The Safe Use of Ultrasound in Medical Diagnosis, 3rd Edition

3 Ungluers have Faved this Work
The onus for ensuring the safety of a diagnostic ultrasound scan has shifted from the manufacturer to the person performing the scan. This means that sonographers and other practitioners need to be knowledgeable about how ultrasound interacts with tissue, and how this changes for different scanning modes and machine settings.

In the third edition of this book, world-leading experts in these areas have provided contributions addressing these topics. Written at a level intended to be accessible to readers from all backgrounds, this book covers the basic concepts important for the safe use of ultrasound and points the interested reader to the extensive literature on these topics. Margin notes emphasizing the main “take home messages” are designed to make this an easy to use reference for those who need to be concerned with medical ultrasound safety.
