Paper Abstract

Modern diagnostic ultrasound scanners use grayscale representation of echo amplitude to show anatomy clearly. The quality of the scans is a function of both the equipment design and equipment operation. This paper deals with the practical aspects of gray-scale ultrasound which the operator can control to get optimum diagnostic information. Transducer selection, control settings, image photography and equipment calibration are discussed.
