This subject examines the basic physics, instrumentation and clinical aspects of medical diagnostic ultrasound. The propagation of ultrasound in attenuative media, the interaction of ultrasound with body tissue, the instrumentation associated with different ultrasound modalities, common imaging artefacts, potential bio-effects, and recommendations for the safe use of ultrasound are all considered. In addition, aspects of 2D real-time, colour and power Doppler, and vascular ultrasound, are presented. The interpretation of diagnostic information gained from the various ultrasound modalities is also given attention.
