For the ARDMS SPI exam!
Here is the SPI edition of the single best-selling mock exam devoted to the ARDMS exam in ultrasound physics. If you are looking for guidance and a clear understanding of the principles and facts you must know to pass the SPI exam, this is the review for you. Written by a sonographer who not only loves ultrasound physics but delights in—and excels at—explaining it to others, this mock examination hones your test-taking skills, measures your progress as you study, and assesses your strengths and weaknesses by exam topic so that you can focus your effort where it counts. With 600 registry-like questions including 60 image-based questions, and simple, clear explanations, the SPI edition of the best-selling Ultrasound Physics Review illuminates this difficult subject from the point of view of the sonographer and points the way to success. An Image Gallery prepares you to tackle the scans on the exam. Precisely based on the ARDMS exam outline and edited by eminent medical physicist Jim Zagzebski, PhD, Ultrasound Physics Review covers all topics in the new revised exam. Very effective in combination with any of the physics texts in our online catalog. 12 hours of SDMS-approved CME credit. More than 60 images. 238 pp.

Combine with the mock exam for the specialty exam you’ll be taking. Read more at RVT Preparation, RDMS Preparation, and RDCS Preparation.

Reviewers' Comments

“A complete and comprehensive guide to ultrasound physics, one of the most complete I have come across. Very helpful.”—Patricia Quinlan, RDMS, Doody's Book Review Service

Many folks get the opportunity to take the Ultrasound Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) exam more than once. Mention physics to some sonographers and their expression tells you that you might as well have said "quantum mechanics" or "regression analysis." Perhaps this describes you. Certainly, fear of physics is common among registry candidates. So is taking the exam more than once.

For frustrated sonographers who want to put this test behind them, we join thousands of successful candidates and educators in recommending the Ultrasound Physics (SPI) Mock Exam by Cindy Owen, RT, RVT, RDMS.

In it Cindy frequently refers to two of our favorite physics texts, Ultrasound Physics and Instrumentation by Wayne Hedrick, David Hykes and Dale Starchman, and Sonography: Principles and Instruments by Frederick Kremkau. Any of them will help you tremendously, especially in combination with the Ultrasound Physics Mock Exam.

How do you know which one will be best for you? Match your learning style and interests with the style, features, and level of difficulty of the book.
