Whether you're a medical student or other health professional, this complete, one-stop tutorial takes you through everything you need to know about ultrasound scanners and their use across the full range of medical settings. Here, you'll get an incisive, step-by-step overview of the physical principles of ultrasound with detailed explanations of how each control works and why it's needed.



Point-of-Care Ultrasound Fundamentals is the one clinical resource that will take your familiarity with portable ultrasound to the next level. No other sourcebook goes further to help you master ultrasound tools and techniques--so you can maximize the quality of diagnostic information obtained during the examination while ensuring patient safety and observing ergonomically-sound scanning techniques.
