This course from the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine has been brought to you by Talisium.
By the end of this session you will be able to: Describe the physical properties of sound waves and what happens to them as they pass through body tissue
Comprehend how a simple ultrasonic transducer works and how real-time echocardiographic images are created
Appreciate how imaging depth, gain and focus influence the quality of echo imaging and how to optimise these images
