DUTEC 269 PHYSICS REVIEW • 2 Cr.
Prepares student for certification exams by reviewing physics and ultrasound instrumentation. Students focus on mathematical analysis and physics theories. Prerequisite: Acceptance into program or permission of program chair.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of acoustical physics by being able to apply it clinically
- Identify the properties of ultrasound and show how this affects transducer selection
- Compare the application of Doppler to those of pulsed echo by demonstrating when to use which modality
- Demonstrate an understanding of fluid dynamics and how it affects the procatice of sonography
