This manual is one of a series of four practical and technical books and manuals prepared by the International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists (ISRRT) on behalf of the Global Steering Group for Education and Training in Diagnostic Imaging, established by the World Health Organization in 1999. The aim of these books is to assist medical and technical personnel working in the area of diagnostic imaging in small and mid-size hospitals.

The present volume on basic physics of ultrasonographic imaging procedures provides clear and concise information on the physics behind ultrasound examinations in diagnostic imaging. It attempts to present the subject from a simple approach that should make it possible for the target groups to comprehend the important concepts which form the physical basis of ultrasonic imaging. The main target group of this manual is radiological technologists and radiographers working with diagnostic ultrasound in developing countries. Clinicians and nurse practitioners may also find the simple presentation appealing. A conscious effort has been made to avoid detailed mathematical treatment of the subject. The emphasis is on simplicity.
