Point of Care OB/GYN Ultrasound Physics: Module 2: Ultrasound Imaging Fundamentals

Module 2, Transducers and Image Generation, develops the foundation for understanding the practical and logistical aspects of scanning. The module begins by discussing transducer basics including functionality, transducer types, and image formats. This is followed by multiple animations which demonstrate how ultrasound images are actually generated – including transducer movements (translation, angulation, and rotation), scan planes, image planes, correlation with anatomical planes, and transducer orientation requirements. These concepts are all unified with actual ultrasound cases which illustrate how to determine fetal lie. In the second part of the module, reflection from tissue is discussed as relates to sonographic appearance. Again, ultrasound images are used to reinforce the concepts being taught.
