This unit introduces the essential physics of medical ultrasound, emphasising system design and the clinical applications of the various functional modes and data / image display capabilities of the diverse types of ultrasound systems. The unit then considers transducer design characteristics and how these principles influence signal acquisition, signal processing and instrumentation of 2D, 3D and 4D real time images when scanning abdominal structures. Simulated practice will enable students to consolidate and apply these principles across a range of prescribed abdominal scanning procedures.
