Physics of Ultrasound

Understanding the basic ultrasound physics presented in this section will be helpful for anesthesiologists to appropriately select the transducer, set the ultrasound system, and then obtain satisfactory imaging.

Optimizing an Ultrasound Image

This section features the importance of ultrasound image optimization and describes the scanning steps to obtain an improved view.
