Therefore, a new approach to teaching and testing sonographic principles is necessary. For over 50 years, one principle has been operating. Now there are two, providing dramatically different results. Students must be prepared to encounter both when they graduate. The fundamental pulse-echo principle that has been in use in conventional sonography for decades states that a pulse of ultrasound is sent into the anatomy to be imaged and the returning echo stream is displayed as a visible scan line. This is repeated about to times to form one frame of the anatomic image. In conventional sonography there is a one-to-one correspondence between the emitted pulse and the returning echo stream that appears as a scan line on the display ignoring the detail that, in some cases, multiple scan lines can be presented from one emitted pulse, typically two or four.
