The BIR’s most recent publication, the Safe use of Ultrasound in Medical Diagnosis, 3rd edition, has received a glowing review in RAD magazine’s bookshelf feature: “the book should be an obligatory item in every ultrasound department."
Edited by Professor Gail ter Harr, the book covers the thermal and non-thermal effects of ultrasound, radiation force effects, the effect of ultrasound on the cells and tissues of a patient, as well as a chapter dedicated to the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound. “Well suited to the needs of ultrasound users from various backgrounds… [the book] satisfies the needs of a wide audience."
