Your answers are highlighted below.
Question 1
This type of artifact causes an ultrasound reflection to be placed at an incorrect depth.
A
Shadowing
B
Longitudinal resolution
C
Range ambiguity
D
Lateral incertitude
Question 2
Ultrasound is cyclic sound pressure with a frequency greater than the upper limit of human hearing. At what value does ultrasound begin?
A
Greater than 0.2 MHz
B
Greater than 10 MHz
C
Greater than 20,000 kHz
D
Greater than 20 kHz
Question 3
What is the term for the concentration of matter?
A
Weight
B
Density
C
Mass
D
Energy
Question 4
In the image below, is the returned frequency higher or lower than the original frequency?Carotid Ultrasound Flow Practice Question
A
The same
B
Higher
C
Color in an Ultrasound is unrelated to frequency.
D
Lower
Question 4 Explanation: 
This image illustrates how doppler is used to determine direction. Remember the example of the waves emitting from a car horn. If the object is moving towards the listener then the waves are compressed and it creates a higher frequency. So the red color on the color scale displays objects moving towards the transducer. Therefore the frequency has to be higher in the echo that returned.
Question 5
The typical frame rate of an Ultrasound system is?
A
Between 50 Hz and 400 Hz
B
Always 60 Hz
C
Between 5 MHz and 40 MHz
D
Between 5 Hz and 40 Hz
Question 6
I = P / area is what equation?
A
Intensity
B
Power
C
Amplitude
D
Frequency
Question 7
The beam is narrowest at what point?
A
Near field
B
Far field
C
Fraunhofer zone
D
Focus
Question 8
When the length of a vessel is halved.
A
Velocity is halved.
B
Resistance is doubled.
C
Viscosity is doubled.
D
Resistance is halved.
Question 9
The diameter of a disc shaped, unfocused piezoelectric crystal is 5 mm. Estimate the minimum lateral resolution of the system.
A
5 mm
B
1 mm
C
2.5 mm
D
1 cm
Question 9 Explanation: 
The beam converges to its narrowest width which is half the width of the transducer.
Question 10
The width of the beam is dependent on what?
A
Amplitude
B
Frequency
C
Depth
D
Wavelength
Question 11

A
At the wall of the vessel.
B
Proximal to a stenosis.
C
At a bifurcation.
