ASUM would like to thank Dr Robert Gill for his generosity of a large donation of physics textbooks from his first edition of 'The Physics and Technology of Diagnostic Ultrasound: A Practioner's Guide' for our education members. Due to an overwhelming demand for the physics textbook, this donation enabled us to provide many more members with a complimentary copy to support ultrasound education. 


Rob has now launched 'The Physics and Technology of Diagnostic Ultrasound: A Practioner's Guide (Second Edition)' - The ultrasound physics text for non-physicists, which is now available online here.
