Physics Applied to Sonography

3 Credits

Prerequisites: DMS 1000, DMS 1020.

Corequisites: DMS 1010, DMS 1420.

The student will study the fundamental principles of acoustical physics. The course will cover wave propagation, acoustical impedance properties, instrumentation, transducer types and characteristics, Doppler principles (continuous wave, pulse wave and color) and biological effects. Topics of discussion will also include quality control of current ultrasound systems.
