It is essential to have a working knowledge of basic ultrasound physics, some common artifacts and how to adjust and improve your images by manipulating things such as depth, gain and TGC. Most ultrasound machines now come pre-programmed with presets for particular organ systems however minor adjustments are sometimes needed. All ultrasound courses and textbooks have an introductory component covering these principles. To commence your ultrasound journey it is essential to have completed a course in Ultrasound physics and Knobology.
