Introduction to Sonography and Patient Care offers today’s students the training and real-world imaging experience they need to master sonography content and competencies, sets the stage for students to excel on certification exams and succeed in their professional careers. This engaging, reader-friendly book provides a powerful bridge to practice, focusing throughout on giving students a first-hand look at how they will apply their training in a clinical setting.
Mirroring JRC-DMS standards in every chapter, the book provides a full overview of need-to-know content delivered at a level appropriate for future sonographers. The text includes topics often omitted in other texts, such as basic physics principles, instrumentation, knobology, patient positioning, professionalism and work ethic, equipment care, quality assurance, and legal essentials.
