Ultrasound Physics

For ARDMS SPI Physics Exam, CCI Noninvasive Echo & Vascular Exams, RPVI and NBE Exams

By simply attending ESP Ultrasound’s physics class, you satisfy all prerequisites to challenge the ARDMS SPI Physics exam!

ESP’s physics program is the most effective and popular method of physics review. The course is specially designed for ultrasound professionals with little or no formal physics background. Within this well-organized and optimized twelve-hour program, information is provided in a way for you to understand the concepts and pass the ARDMS and CCI certification exams. If you plan to take the National Board of Echocardiography exam, this is great preparation. The course allows you to understand the concepts, gain command of the material, and earn a passing grade.

This course is perfect for sonographers challenging the new ARDMS SPI Ultrasound Physics exam. However, during our physics and specialty weekends, CCI noninvasive echo and vascular students should also attend the afternoon Adult Echocardiography specialty course or Vascular Technology specialty course in order to cover all of the material found on these CCI examinations. Physicians preparing for the SCA and NBE Board exams will gain command of the required physics concepts. This program is finely tuned based on the tens of thousands of students who have attended this course in prior years. It provides you the most current and up-to-date information, and ensures that we will “hit the bull’s eye” in your registry preparation.

Richard “Richie” Palma is a distinguished educator in physics and cardiac ultrasound. He is passionate about ultrasound and brings his enthusiasm to each of his lectures. He is the director and clinical coordinator of the Duke Cardiac Ultrasound Certificate Program.
Previously, he was the associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of Connecticut and the director of the Hoffman Heart Institute School of Cardiovascular Technology and Ultrasound.

He has worked in the profession since 1990. He was the first in the country to become a fellow of the American Society of Echocardiography and one of the first to earn the credential of Advanced Cardiac Sonographer (ACS). In 2011 he received the Distinguished Educator Award from the SDMS and was inducted as a fellow in 2016. Richie is a co-author of numerous papers and cardiac materials. He lectures extensively both nationally and internationally on adult echocardiography and contrast.
