ULTRA P.A.S.S. Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) Registry Review Flashcards are designed based upon qualified requests from the medical community to expand the Physics/SPI sonographer requirements.

The ULTRA P.A.S.S. Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) Registry Review Flashcards are available in both physical and digital versions, and contain 403 registry content questions (including assorted images, diagrams and charts) designed after the actual registry format, and provides a method of final testing to determine the areas of weakness that may require further study, while at the same time reinforcing the material with which you are already comfortable. The physical decks measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 for convenient carrying, have space on each card for personal notes, and have two removable fastener rings to allow the decks to be shuffled to change question order.
