I thank and congratulate you for the teachings in this area that I obtained on your platform. Congratulations on the course, it is excellent" - W. Boim 

Course Applications

This specific  physics course is designed to study for the:

  • Physics Portions of your Vascular Board Exam.
  • Physics Portions of your National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) ASCeXAM, ReASCE, and ARDMS Echocardiography Boards.
  • Physics Portions of your American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) Physicians Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) and Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) Board.  
  • Physics Portions of your American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) Vascular Sonography Exam.
  • ARDMS SPI Physics Exam
  • Physics Portions of the RDMS, RDCS, RCS, RCCS, RMSK
  • Physics Portions of your American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) Sonography Exam
  • Physics Portions of your Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) Registered Cardiac Sonography (RCS) Exam
  • No clinical course content is presented.

    We offer an online Physics Ultrasound Physics Board Review course for sonographers and technologists who are preparing for the physics portions of their board exams. Physicians who practice radiology, cardiology, emergency medicine, cardiac anesthesiology, and OBGYN are preparing for the physics portions of the ultrasound board exams.

    This online course is presented in six sections. Every section contains an audio/visual presentation, printable key notes pages for offline study, and a timed multiple-choice quiz. Every time you take a quiz the questions are randomly pulled from our large question bank, so each quiz will be different. When you complete a quiz you can review the detailed explanation of the correct answer and where to find more information in the lectures. A comprehensive course review quiz enables you to practice in a timed multiple-choice format similar to the actual Sonography Physics board exams. Quiz & lecture material can be reviewed repeatedly until you understand the material, feel confident with your physics exam skills, and earn your passing exam grade. Study the course material in two choices of courses, with 3 months of access to our course material.
