A creative engineer tends to understand the principles and phenomena not only based on mathematical physics but also by intuition. Author has picked up several topics among such principles and phenomena in the area of medical ultrasound and challenges to explain them intuitively in this article. The chosen topics are the lateral resolution, Doppler blood flow measurement, a piezoelectric element, ultrasonic absorption by biological tissues, and intensive/extensive variables. Author hopes that the presented intuitive explanation will help the readers to enhance their creativity as an engineer.
