Doppler and Color Doppler Sonography serve in diagnostic medicine for the visualization of flow phenomena, as well as for the measurement and evaluation of blood flow velocities in the heart and in the vascular system. The double CD-ROM, containing an interactive self-learning program for this medical discipline, is equally interesting for those using the method and those learning the method.
One of the two CD-ROMs presents information about the physical basis, from the Doppler formula up to artifacts, Brief video clips are demonstrating typical sequences required in preparing for measurements and performing examinations. The user is introduced to numerous tips and tricks taken from actual practice and, on the basis of simulated measurements approximating real situations encountered in practice, gains training in the selection of optimum parameters of measurement. A quiz helps to assess the level of knowledge and progress in learning.
The second CD-ROM presents a very comprehensive collection of ultrasound images taken from everyday clinical practice. Based on a body pattern, a convenient and easy-to-operate user interface allows the user to call up ultrasound images from a selected region of the body and display the region selected along with the relevant parameters of measurement.
