WHAT OUR READERS SAY

  • “Stunning. A tour de force. I am sure it will become the new standard physics textbook in Australasia and perhaps the world. There simply isn't anything like this out there.”

    MARTIN NECAS
    Author (Artifacts in Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound), Sonographer Educator, Hamilton, New Zealand
  • “Love it. You make ultrasound physics easy to understand. I compared a few chapters to [the text used at present] and what a difference!”

    MARK BRYANT
    Lecturer in DMU preparation courses, Member of DMU Board of Examiners, awarded Chris Kohlenberg Teaching Fellowship 2000, Ballina, NSW
  • “You’ve really done a wonderful job. The illustrations especially are so clear and concise. Not too long or over-complicated either. Just right."

    LEE COLLINS
    Director of Medical Physics, Westmead Hospital, Sydney
  • “I've ... chosen to find aspects of physics that I have found to be poorly explained in all the other books available - thank you for having such an ability to bring these concepts into language understood by poor mortals. I am truly impressed. The overall initial impression is - this is the book we've all been waiting for”

    SUE DAVIES
    Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold Coast, Queensland
  • “Rob Gill has a unique ability to describe the often complicated concepts of ultrasound physics in a way that is easy to understand. For this reason, Rob is always my 'go-to-guy' for any questions that I have regarding this topic. So I have no doubt that his textbook on Ultrasound Physics will be embraced as a 'must-have' study tool and teaching guide for all those in the field of medical ultrasound.”

  • “I thought I would let you know that I think your book is excellent. Although I haven’t gone through the whole text yet, I find it quite easy to read. It does not contain excessive physics detail which makes it great for sonographers and other medical personnel.”
