The 8thedition of Kremkau'sSonography Principles and Instrumentsconcisely and comprehensively covers the essential aspects of sonography physics and technology, presenting state-of-the-art content in a dynamic, highly visual format. Confidently prepare for the challenges of practice with a clear understanding of how diagnostic sonography works, including Doppler, artifacts, safety, quality assurance, the latest technology, and more.

  • Essential coverage of physics and ultrasoundhelps you prepare for the ARDMS SPI exam.
  • Straightforward explanationssimplify complex content.
  • Key Pointshighlight the most important information to help you study more efficiently.
  • Learning featuressuch as chapter outlines, learning objectives, bulleted chapter summaries, and a glossary of sonography physics terms make difficult concepts easier to review and understand.
  • End-of-chapter exercisestest your knowledge and understanding with a mix of true-or-false, fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, and mathematical questions.
  • A mathematics appendixprovides fast, efficient access to aList of Symbols, aCompilation of Equations, and aMathematics Review.
  • A full-color designdepicts more than 200 high-quality ultrasound scans similar to what you'll encounter in the clinical setting.
  • Updated scansfrom the most current equipment and updated content on 3D imaging, contrast, elastrography, and imaging artifacts provide all the information necessary to be consistent with current technology.
  • Full-color photosof common instruments and control panels familiarize you with the devices you'll use in practice.
  • Updated risk and safety statementshelp you ensure compliance with current national standards.
  • New outline and presentation of materials reflect the2009 ARDMS Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) examination.
