A progressive and structured approach towards mastery of ultrasound practice is a fundamental concept of the ScanTrainer system.

ScanTrainer offers an extensive range of curriculum-based educational modules and patient cases across multiple healthcare disciplines allowing trainees, not just to develop their scanning skills, but to scan and diagnose pathologies that would rarely be encountered in a traditional training environment.

ScanTrainer Educational Modules have been designed for use with ScanTrainer’s Transabdominal and Transvaginal haptic simulators.

ScanTrainer Educational Modules
ScanTrainer's educational modules take you from basic to advanced levels of practice in scanning proficiency and clinical diagnosis.
It's a simple step-by-step process...
Ultrasound Physics

Start with the basic principles of ultrasound for an understanding of:

  • The nature of ultrasound
  • Basic principles of real-time scanning
  • Doppler and image optimisation
  • Artefacts
  • Safe practice

Probe Manipulation Skills

The ScanTrainer probe manipulation module teaches the effect of probe manipulation on how structures are shown on an ultrasound image. It has been designed specifically to improve hand-eye coordination and 3D to 2D visual awareness for ultrasound trainees.

Transducer Skills
Skills Learning Modules

Extensive learning modules by clinical speciality provide students with a wealth of educational resources. ScanTutor, our unique real-time virtual tutor replicates learning one-to-one with an expert and is embedded into all our modules. Trainees will be able to acquire complex, hard-to-learn ultrasound scanning skills independently, in their own time and at their own pace.

ScanTutor Real-Time On-Screen Visual Guidance
Skills Assessment

After each lesson, students can self-check their performance. Modules are broken down by task and are assessed against Gold Standard metrics set by expert practitioners. With each pass or fail grade, an explanation is stated including any relevant expert images to demonstrate the correct technique.
In ‘Test Mode’, all aids are deactivated and the trainee is assessed using the in-built metrics as though they are scanning a real patient.

TVS Results
Case Learning

An extensive library of patient cases allows students to access a diverse range of common normal variants, abnormalities and pathology. There are currently over 500 real patient scans in the ScanTrainer Case Library. Over 300 structured patient cases take students through the stages of patient assessment to final diagnosis.

OB Advanced Case Learning
Case Exams

A number of case exams have been designed to test students’ competence and confidence in ultrasound practice. Students are presented with a brief patient history and are asked to scan the virtual patient and answer multiple choice questions to test diagnostic skills for a range of pathologies. All assignments have relevant diagnostic feedback.

The Case Library and Case Exams are included in ScanTrainer Examine. Find out more…
