    Ultrasound has a wide range of medical applications. Some of these include obstetrics (monitoring the progress of pregnancy), oncology (monitoring the growth of tumors), cardiology (visualizing the heart function and physiology), biopsy (guiding needles in various procedures), and physiotherapy. For example, today, an estimated 60-70% of pregnant women in the United States undergo ultrasound examination during pregnancy. An estimated 250 million fetal ultrasound examinations are performed every year in the USA. In the last few decades, ultrasound technology has expanded to medical imaging in various other specialties: Anesthesiology, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, General Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB-GYN), Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Physiatry, Sports Medicine, and Surgery. The increasing demand in the use of ultrasound technology in various biomedical fields points to a future in which medical professionals will be required to possess a general knowledge of ultrasound technology. While currently most medical professionals rely on technicians to perform the imaging studies, there can be a high degree of operator dependent results. Therefore, a solid foundation of the technological properties of ultrasound would give health care providers a competitive advantage in the future. This is one of the first goals of this textbook. This textbook also covers general aspects of diagnostic ultrasound providing an excellent reference for both beginners and professionals. In addition, this textbook has end-of-the-chapter experiments that will help educators conduct labs for students and any other learners to enhance their learning and solidify the practical skills.

    El aprendizaje matemático para adultos con escolaridad inconclusa es un tema crucial para mejorar la calidad de vida y las oportunidades laborales de muchas personas. Estas personas pueden enfrentar desafíos únicos debido a lagunas en su educación formal, pero aún así, es posible desarrollar habilidades matemáticas sólidas. Un enfoque efectivo para enseñar matemáticas a adultos con escolaridad inconclusa es utilizar métodos prácticos y contextualizados. Esto significa vincular los conceptos matemáticos con situaciones de la vida real que los adultos puedan encontrar en su trabajo, hogar o comunidad. Por ejemplo, enseñar habilidades financieras básicas como el presupuesto, el manejo de dinero y el cálculo de intereses puede ser extremadamente útil y motivador. Además, es importante crear un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro y de apoyo que fomente la confianza y la participación activa. Los adultos pueden sentir vergüenza o ansiedad debido a sus experiencias previas de aprendizaje, por lo que es crucial proporcionarles retroalimentación constructiva y celebrar sus logros, por pequeños que sean. La tecnología también puede desempeñar un papel importante en el aprendizaje matemático para adultos con escolaridad inconclusa. Las aplicaciones y programas educativos pueden ofrecer lecciones interactivas, ejercicios prácticos y seguimiento del progreso, todo lo cual puede ayudar a los adultos a mejorar sus habilidades matemáticas de manera autodidacta y a su propio ritmo. El aprendizaje matemático para adultos con escolaridad inconclusa es un proceso desafiante pero fundamental para mejorar su calidad de vida y oportunidades futuras. Al adoptar un enfoque práctico, contextualizado y de apoyo, es posible ayudar a estos adultos a adquirir las habilidades matemáticas necesarias para tener éxito en la vida cotidiana y en el lugar de trabajo.
