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
