By Brandi Lashbrook
The chapters are somewhat long and drawn out, but it has what you need to know. The most irritating thing is that the words that are describing a picture are sometimes a page or two or three behind the page with the picture. That drives me crazy. I have also found some typos in it. For as expensive as it was, I do not like lots of mistakes. I do like the that it has a workbook that goes along with it.

Best beginner book for ultrasound
By John Farolan
This book is well organized. What I enjoyed most was the images and multiple drawings and charts that made ultrasound easier to understand. Some books for this subject do not include enough examples of images for the organ discussed. I definitely recommend this book to anyone just starting to learn ultrasound technology.

The book is extremely helpful for my courses. Very organized, descriptive, and full of information that will be on the ARDMS! A little pricey but totally worth it if you sell it back to another classmate. Keep it after your courses for a quick reference while studying for your test
