The third of eight modules, Ultrasound System Controls: Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging reviews the
function of the ultrasound system controls, relating each control back to the underlying physic concept taught
in the previous two modules. The module covers choosing the appropriate transmit frequency, transmit power,
receiver gain, imaging depth, image width, focal depth, compression (dynamic range), presets, screen brightness,
and the use of the harmonics, automated optimization, and cine loop. Ultrasound images and video loops are used
throughout to illustrate the functionality of each control.
