How it Works

Each SonoSim module contains:

  • A Didactic, Cloud-Based, Multimedia Course
  • Real-Time Knowledge Checks & a Mastery Test
  • A Series of Hands-On, Real Patient Scanning Cases Accessed with the SonoSimulator® Ultrasound Probe

The SonoSimulator Ultrasound Probe is a one-time purchase and is your access key to the SonoSim modules you license annually. License to each module is purchased in the first year, and maintained with an annual membership fee. Keep scanning and maintain all your member benefits, including annual access to all your modules, with your low annual membership fee of $295 (complimentary in your first year).

Course Highlights

SonoSim cloud-based, multimedia, didactic courses are created by leading ultrasound experts, and are internet accessible immediately after purchase, on any device. There are knowledge checks with real-time feedback throughout each course, as well as a Mastery Test that is automatically graded.

The course in this module covers topics including:

  • Procedure Indications & Contraindications
  • Site Selection
  • Sonography Anatomy & Characteristics
  • Transducer Selection & Settings
  • Ergonomic Considerations
  • Patient Positioning
  • Infection Prevention
  • Survey Scan & Procedure Steps
  • Doppler-Mode Imaging
  • Tips, Pitfalls, & Complications

SonoSimulator Scanning Cases

The SonoSimulator® helps develop and maintain the critical visuomotor and visuospatial skills that are central to image acquisition and interpretation with real patient imagery, expert tutorials on-demand, and real-time feedback on success.

The real patient scanning case in this module includes and covers:

  • Patient Type: Adult Female
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: One Real Adult Patient Training Case
  • Transducer Types: Linear-array
  • Scanning Approaches: Lateral-to-Medial and Anterior-to-Posterior
  • Procedural Techniques: In-Plane, Out-of-Plane, and Combination Techniques

Continued Medical Education

This Ultrasound-Guided Acromioclavicular Joint Injection & Aspiration: Procedure Module will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of how to perform ultrasound-guided acromioclavicular joint injection and/or aspiration. The Course reviews relevant anatomy and explores the use of ultrasound to evaluate acromioclavicular joint pathologies and clinical indications for performing the procedure. Acute and chronic pathologic conditions that afflict the acromioclavicular joint are discussed, including osteoarthritis, blunt trauma, rheumatologic conditions, joint separation, and joint subluxation.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American College of Emergency Physicians, the Illinois College of Emergency Physicians, and SonoSim, Inc. The American College of Emergency Physicians is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
