Brian Anthony, PhD, from Massachusetts Institute of Technology reflects on the extensive sources of inherent error and variability in the ultrasound imaging process, including the hardware, people and workflow. He also gives a behind the scenes perspective on how ultrasound will become more quantifiable, repeatable, and easier to learn in the future.
