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:

  • Breast Anatomy & Physiology
  • Sonographic Anatomy of the Breast
  • Discerning Breast Layers, Normal Anatomical Variants, & Age-Related Changes
  • Sonographic Breast Scanning Techniques
  • Pearls & Pitfalls when Evaluating the Breast

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 3 real patient scanning cases in this module include and cover:

  • Patient Types: Adult Only, Female
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: Normal Examples of Breast Anatomy
  • Transducer Types: Linear
  • Special Case Features: Additional Breast CT and MRI Imaging, Anatomic Layer Removal

Continued Medical Education

This Breast: Anatomy & Physiology Module begins with an overview of the role of ultrasound in the evaluation of the breast. A brief overview of breast anatomy and physiology is provided. The sonographic anatomy of the breast is described in detail. Optimal transducer selection, patient positioning, imaging approaches, and techniques for sonographically evaluating the breast are discussed. The course concludes with imaging tips and pitfalls and a summary of salient teaching points.
