All healthcare professionals practising ultrasound in a clinical setting should receive accredited training in the principles and practice of ultrasound scanning. This second edition of Diagnostic Ultrasound: Physics and Equipment provides a comprehensive introduction to the physics, technology and safety of ultrasound equipment, with high quality ultrasound images and diagrams throughout. It covers all aspects of the field at a level intended to meet the requirements of UK sonography courses. New to this edition: * Updated descriptions of ultrasound technology, quality assurance and safety. * Additional chapters dedicated to 3D ultrasound, contrast agents and elastography. * New glossary containing definitions of over 500 terms. The editors and contributing authors are all authorities in their areas, with contributions to the scientific and professional development of ultrasound at national and international level.

'This is an excellent text which provides a valuable resource to support the teaching of ultrasound physics, instrumentation and safety for all those involved in the teaching, training and practice of ultrasound. It is also an ideal core text for all healthcare professionals undertaking ultrasound training and is very highly recommended.' Julie Walton, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Medicine, University of Liverpool 'A fantastic reference book for Part I IPEM Medical Physics trainees. Easy to read and very clear explanations. Very very useful.' Annette Paton, University Hospitals Bristol, Radiotherapy Physics Unit 'When the first edition of this book was published in 2002 ... it did indeed fill the gap in the market for a comprehensive readable account of the physics and technology underpinning diagnostic ultrasound. It has become the standard text for many ultrasound courses and many of us use it as source material for teaching. Eight years later, there is still a need for a text to clarify the numerous 'technological advances' with which manufacturers now litter their machines. This edition fulfils that most admirably ... This reviewer found it very difficult to come up with some sensible substantial negative comments. That is probably because this is an excellent book, it dills a major gap in the field (previously only filled by the first edition) and it is a major contribution to the education and instruction of ultrasound practitioners whatever their background. It works admirably both as a textbook and as a reference volume.' Ultrasound
