1 Review
Foundations of Biomedical Ultrasound provides a thorough and detailed treatment of the underlying physics and engineering of medical ultrasound practices. It covers the fundamental engineering behind ultrasound equipment, properties of acoustic wave motion, the behavior of waves in various media, non-linear waves and the creation of images. The most comprehensive book on the subject, Foundations of Biomedical Ultrasound is an indispensable reference for any medical professional working with ultrasound imaging, and a comprehensive introduction to the subject for students. The author has been researching and teaching biomedical ultrasonics at the University of Toronto for the past 25 years.

Richard,
The technology has progressed to the point where the view of the ions, molecules and cells can be made visible using software to filter the reflected beams and to analyze and assemble the
view of the micro and nano levels of the body ions, molecules and cells.
The value of this image can and will permit the analysis of the movement and attachment of the micro level of the body parts to enable the understanding and identification of various types of cancer and disease.
One wonders why this advancement in ultrasound has not been accomplished.
