Principles of Diagnostic Ultrasound Lecture Series (DVD)
Presented by: Frederick W. Kremkau, PhD

This six-hour lecture series covers the major topics involved in how modern ultrasound imaging and Doppler ultrasound work. Recent technological advances are included.

The lecture series serves three purposes:

  • It provides an introduction for participants who are new to the field.
  • It provides a review and update of recent technological advances for practicing physicians, sonographers and other health professionals.
  • It provides a review for participants preparing for the UPI, CPI and VPI examinations administered by the ARDMS.

Topics include:

  • Ultrasound
  • Transducers
  • Instruments
  • Doppler
  • Artifacts
  • Safety

Suggested Reading

The following list has been compiled for those wishing to supplement their understanding of ultrasound applications or expand their background knowledge before enrolling in a course.
