The correct setting of the ultrasound equipment is a perequisite for a high quality of the ultrasound examination. Both the B-mode ultrasonography, as well as the Doppler technique offer interesting alternative settings that are often inadequately used. This brief summary of basic settings should help the practicing clinicians in everyday life and motivate them to deal with the „knobs" of the ultrasound device. Good practical help will provided by the „Sonocave" an event regularly organized at the annual ultrasonic training Congress in Davos, where recognized experts will answer such „Knobology"-questions and demonstrate the appropriate settings also practically.

    Doppler signals, recorded from the umbilical artery of 60 women with pregnancy, were transferred to personal computer via a 16-bit sound card. The fast Fourier transform (FFT) method was applied to the recorded signal from each patient. Because FFT method inherently cannot offer a good spectral...

    Gray-scale and color Doppler ultrasonography have limited accuracy in characterization of focal liver lesions because a significant overlapping exists between the echo pattern and vascularity of benign and malignant lesions. Several clinical studies have demonstrated that characterization of...
