Ultrasound physics education online


On this site we offer online courses and free resources for students of ultrasound physics. 

Currently available are three introductory courses on the physics and technology of diagnostic ultrasound for practitioners who are new to ultrasound.

The physics course is accredited by the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM) for its Certificate in Clinician Performed Ultrasound (CCPU) and Certificate in Allied Health Performed Ultrasound (CAHPU). It is also recommended by ASUM as a bridging course for DMU and DDU candidates who lack a strong background in physics.

It has also been adopted by several universities and other providers of tertiary courses for the physics component of their sonography and medical imaging programs, and in their short courses.

We also offer a mathematics bridging course for those who lack a strong background in mathematics and science.

The presenter, Dr Rob Gill, is renowned for his ability to make complex concepts easy to understand. His textbook "The Physics and Technology of Diagnostic Ultrasound: A Practitioner's Guide" is widely used in university and professional courses.


" . . . thank you for having such an ability to bring these concepts into language understood by poor mortals. I am truly impressed . . . this is the book we've all been waiting for" Sue Davies (founding Director, Australian Institute of Ultrasound

"An excellent course, probably the most relevant training I've undertaken in years! Great real world examples reinforced all of the concepts." ZN

"I have started this course today, and am finding it to be fantastic . . . I will be looking forward to the future courses." MF

"I think the course is excellent! The graphics illustrate the physics nicely and I found it (to my surprise admittedly) really exciting! That's why I finished it quite quickly! Thanks for the great resource!" AB


Video demonstrations with voice-over narration presenting the solutions to all the calculation-based exercises in the book "The Physics and Technology of Diagnostic Ultrasound: A Practitioner's Guide".

Test your knowledge:
- a multiple-choice quiz, with feedback on the correct answers
- a set of calculation-based exercises, also with feedback on the correct answers
- three crossword puzzles to test your understanding of terminology
