Understanding the principles of wave physics paves the way for appropriate utilization and interpretation of sonography. In module 1 of the course series "Anesthesia Focused Sonography", the course participants will learn by lectures and practical training, how ultrasonic waves emerge, how they travel in human tissue, and how a picture is generated from their echo signals. Furthermore, the technology of an ultrasound system and the development of artifacts will be demonstrated; moreover, the Doppler effect and its implementation into current sonographic procedures will be presented as a central theme.
