Publisher: GLOWM 2014
Number of pages: 322
This text concisely covers the physics of ultrasound and how to exploit the features of today's equipment to optimize every image, while using methods to assure that the fetus is exposed to the lowest ultrasound energies. It tackles something as mundane as how to hold a transducer properly, as well as providing clever hints on how, for example, to insert the vaginal transducer into the umbilicus to better image the fetus in an obese patient.
