Ultrasound Physics eCourse
This online eCourse is designed to cover the content tested on the Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) exam, the physics portion of the Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) RCS and RVS exams, and physics concepts tested on other ultrasound physics related credentialing exams. Topics covered include ultrasound math principles, waves, attenuation, pulsed wave operation, transducers, system operation, Doppler, artifacts, bioeffects, contrast and harmonics, quality assurance, and hemodynamics. Frank Miele, MSEE teaches this online series in a conceptual manner, relating the material to actual scanning and interpretation principles. The unique Pegasus delivery platform allows you to customize your presentation, view modules at your convenience, print notes, and even bookmark topics to create your own focused review session. A study guide is provided with step-by-step directions on how to best master the material.

Ultrasound Physics and Instrumentation, 5e
Updated and expanded, Frank Miele's Ultrasound Physics and Instrumentation, 5th Edition remains the industry standard for students, sonographers, clinicians, residents and physicians honing their expertise and understanding of the underlying physics concepts and science behind ultrasound. With a balanced approach that focuses on better comprehension of ultrasound system operating principles, this educational resource has more than 800 images and over 275 animations, graphics, and AVIs, with specific sections highlighting Key Concepts and Common Misconceptions. The textbook is supplemented with access to '5e Online Extras' consisting of an Animation and Image Library, Quiz Bank, Supplemental Exercises, and new chapters on emerging ultrasound technologies and applications.

Essentials of Physics: The Board Review Book
Frank Miele, the highly acclaimed author of Ultrasound Physics, 5th Edition, leads you through the key concepts of ultrasound physics in this unique board preparation guide. Each brief chapter begins with a critical concept summary, followed by typical board questions. A thorough explanation is included with each question to not only prepare you for your exam but to improve your command of the subject. By providing an inside look at the key concepts and the test questions most often seen by exam takers, Essentials of Ultrasound Physics: The Board Review Book gives you the edge on your credentialing exam.

Mastering Semi-Interactive Console (SIC) Questions
This interactive program has been created to familiarize sonographers and technologists with the functions of system controls for image optimization and to better prepare registry candidates for the advanced item type semi-interactive console (SIC) questions. The Strategies Section introduces a disciplined approach to analyzing SIC questions and determining the best method to approach each individual question. In Test Mode, the practice SIC questions assess knowledge of and appropriate application of ultrasound physics and knobology in a case setting, in a format similar to that of the actual credentialing exam. Review Mode consists of a Question Review in which each question becomes fully interactive, reflecting system optimization in a clinical setting and Theory Review in which a video explanation details how to best analyze the question and reinforces the underlying physics concept.

Ultrasound Physics ExamSim Program
The Ultrasound Physics ExamSim utilizes a patented Intelligent Analysis algorithm to determine the participant’s level of preparedness for their credentialing exam. In addition to detailing areas of weakness, the program provides a breakdown of score by topic and subtopic so the user can target those areas in their final preparation. Information is captured with each keystroke during the practice exams allowing the participant to review their specific test-taking habits (i.e. how they are changing answers, what their score would have been if they had not changed answers, time per topic, question types they get wrong and how they performed relative to cardinal test-taking rules.) The comprehensive review section provides thorough explanations to ensure that the participant fully understands the rationale of the question. A full, interactive test-taking tutorial is also included and is designed to improve the user’s overall test-taking skills. Each exam can be taken up to eight times in test mode with unlimited access to all exams in review mode. Take the guesswork out of your level of preparedness for your exam with the Ultrasound Physics ExamSim program. (Add ExamSim Graphic)
