Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book has been written by one of Australia’s leading ultrasound educators to help medical professionals develop a sound understanding of the physics and technology of ultrasound. It is intended for use either in self-guided study or as a textbook for formal university and professional courses of study. Ultrasound practitioners must have a good understanding of the technology and underlying physical principles of ultrasound. Only then can they competently operate the equipment, optimise the controls, recognise problems (such as image artifacts) and know the limitations of the technology. Unfortunately many health professionals find the physics and technology of ultrasound difficult to understand. The concepts used are unfamiliar and very abstract. This book, based on decades of experience teaching ultrasound physics and technology to medical practitioners and sonographers, aims to make the subject as accessible as possible. The author is renowned for his ability to make difficult concepts understandable, as the following comments show. “Stunning. A tour de force. I am sure it will become the new standard physics textbook in Australasia and perhaps the world. There simply isn't anything like this out there.” Martin Necas, Sonographer Educator, Hamilton, New Zealand. “Rob Gill has a unique ability to describe the often complicated concepts of ultrasound physics in a way that is easy to understand. For this reason, Rob is always my ‘go-to-guy’ for any questions that I have regarding this topic. So I have no doubt that his textbook on Ultrasound Physics will be embraced as a ‘must-have’ study tool and teaching guide for all those in the field of medical ultrasound.” Bonita Anderson, Author (Echocardiography: The Normal Examination and Echocardiographic Measurements), Senior Lecturer, Queensland University of Technology, Echo Educator, The Prince Charles Hospital. “I've ... chosen to find aspects of physics that I have found to be poorly explained in all the other books available - thank you for having such an ability to bring these concepts into language understood by poor mortals. I am truly impressed. The overall initial impression is - this is the book we've all been waiting for” Sue Davies, Program Director, Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold Coast, Queensland.
