Quick Concepts: Apparent SNR

A previous ‘Quick Concepts’ discussed the significance of signal-to-noise ratio in ultrasound technology. Briefly summarized, sonographers and ultrasound professionals are trained to optimize signal strength relative to noise in order to produce good clinical or diagnostic data. Poor signal-to-noise ratio … Continue reading
