This section is designed to help you understand the basic principles of ultrasound physics and covers high-yield concepts to help you appreciate the principles behind how the echo machine transforms the information it receives from the transducer into the images we see displayed. Knowledge of these principles will also help you to troubleshoot situations when the information displayed is incompatible with physiologic or expected values, or when artifacts are suspected. If there is a topic you would like covered here, please email us.
