Second, in response to the rather fussy reviewer from Hawaii, those of us in this field who use ultrasound for diagnostic studies take an exam called "Physics" to obtain certification. The book is meant to help those people to prepare for that exam. Therefore, the title is pretty much right on the money.
I usually advise students (and others preparing for the exam) to use the Edelman text along with another ultrasound physics text, such as the Kremkau or Zagzebski, in order to nail all of the test-taker's blind spots, but this will get you a long way toward knowing what you need.
NOTE! Some rascals are selling older editions of this text for absurdly high prices, a practice that appears to be tolerated everywhere on the Amazon site. Get the 4rd edition, the green one, which is improved over the older ones, and brand new it will cost less than these grossly inflated prices. All respect to Sid Edelman, those are okay, but not collectors' items.
he has just published the new very expanded version for $79 at [...] i'm sure it's good, but a whole sonography class at my school passed the RDMS board with the purple one.
if you want to find out how many pixels fit on the end of a pin, you could read the pegasus physics books. they are what my teacher had us get. we ALL (14 of us) hate them. my reason was that his writing style does not help me learn; that is the opinion of most of my classmates as well.
you ask sid edelman what time it is and he shows you his wristwatch. if you don't get it he quickly clarifies how to tell time. that's it.
exam and I passed the first time! It was easy to understand and
the Q&A with explanations really helped me nail my registry. I
have recommended this text to my co-workers who are still trying
to pass the exam.
