Participants are recommended to have read a textbook (e.g. Huda's Review of Radiological Physics (4th Ed), in addition to having attended a didactic imaging Physics course, and is not suitable for those with no background in Radiological Physics. Topics cover Foundations of Radiological Physics, (i.e. X-Ray Production/Interaction, Image Creation, Image Quality, Dosimetry, Radiobiology, and Radiation Safety), all X-ray Imaging Modalities, (i.e., Radiography, Mammography, Fluoroscopy, IR and CT), as well as Advanced Modalities (i.e., MR, Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound).

Advances in ultrasound technology and diagnostic utility, including 3D sonography, contrast-enhanced ultrasound, elastography and Doppler, make it difficult for those who practice ultrasound to stay current and up-to-date on new techniques and diagnostic capabilities. The recent incorporation of elastography in ultrasound systems makes it possible to assess tissue stiffness to help differentiate benign from malignant masses and to determine the degree of liver fibrosis in patients with cirrhosis. In addition, new methods of prenatal diagnosis have changed the role of ultrasound in fetal assessment. The 41st Brigham and Women’s Hospital Ultrasound course includes one day of General and Vascular Ultrasound followed by two days devoted to Obstetrical and Gynecological Ultrasound. Our audience will consist of radiologists, obstetrician/gynecologists, sonographers and other practitioners whose scope of practice includes ultrasound. The educational format will be didactic lectures and case presentations, supplemented by question and answer periods.
