What does the Ultrasound Physics course cover?
The course will first explore the physics of ultrasound and the scientific principles underpinning ultrasound imaging.
Students will then learn about the different types of ultrasound equipment that can and might be used, including the role of Doppler ultrasound, and how these affect the clinical applications of the equipment.
Students will also learn how an effective imaging strategy can maximize the quality of the images produced. This will encompass a theoretical exploration of the interrelationships between image production, artefact recognition and reduction techniques and the use of contrast agents.
Finally, it will address the issues relating to safety and working within the ultrasound environment.
