Introduction to Diagnostic Ultrasound

This 2 ½ day class provides the student with the knowledge it takes to do preventive maintenance on virtually any diagnostic ultrasound system and lays the foundation for advanced service training. The course includes basic ultrasound theory, ultrasound physics, clinical applications of ultrasound, and the theory of operation and block diagram components common to all ultrasound systems. We also discuss the various probe types and how to do performance testing of the system and probes.
