Ultrasound Machine Reviews Diagnostic Ultrasound machine reviews on portable and console ultrasound machines. Includes the archive and new ultrasound machines, including video reviews of ultrasound machines.
SonoWorld This is one of the best diagnostic ultrasound sonography sites available. It includes a lot of case studies, images, equipment information, videos and more. Excellent source for all sorts of help and reference for diagnostic ultrasound. Definitely one of my favorites.
One of the coolest sites on the internet, HowStuffWorks,
recently released a visual tour of How Ultrasound Works.
I'd skip the visual tour if I were you, it's quite boring, contains 183 images, and includes many images of outdated equipment with few good details. However, there's a fantastic article (from which those images are derived) for those who are looking to get into ultrasound... such as those in the emerging markets of internal medicine, emergency medicine, and Family Practice physicians who are looking to add ultrasound to their practice. It gives a great background and overview of understanding the principles and what you need to know about these great devices. You can see the whole article here.
Quoted from http://health.howstuffworks.com/ultrasound.htm:
There are many reaons to get an ultrasound. Perhaps you are pregnant, and your obstetrician wants you to have an ultrasound to check on the developing baby or determine the due date. Maybe you are having problems with blood circulation in a limb or your heart, and your doctor has requested a Doppler ultrasound to look at the blood flow. Ultrasound has been a popular medical imaging technique for many years.
