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:

  • Bladder Sonography Anatomy & Characteristics
  • Pathophysiology of the Bladder
  • Imaging Artifacts - Low Attenuation & Reverberation
  • Transducer Selection & Settings
  • Patient Positioning
  • Case Studies with Pathology, including Cystitis, Internal Echoes, Hematoma, Diverticulum, Rupture and Ureteral Obstruction
  • Bladder Volume Measurement
  • Catheterization
  • 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 10 real patient scanning cases in this module include and cover:

  • Patient Types: Male & Female, 8 Adult & 2 Pediatric
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: Normal Adult & Pediatric Patients, Decompressed Bladder Patients, Normal & Moderately Distended Bladder Patients, Urinary Retention Patients, Bladder with Indwelling Foley Catheter Case, Bladder Diverticulum Patient, Prostatic Hypertrophy Case, Ascites with Free Pelvic Fluid Patient
  • Transducer Types: Curvilinear
  • Special Case Features: Anatomic Layer Removal
