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:

  • Normal Venous System Anatomy and Physiology
  • Sonographic Venous Anatomy & Flow
  • Sonographic Technique & Examination
  • POCUS DVT Examination
  • Possible Diagnoses including DVT & Alternative Conditions

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: Adult Only, Male & Female
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: Partially occlusive thrombi cases; Completely Occlusive Thrombi Cases; Acute Thrombi Cases; Chronic-Appearing Thrombi Cases; Identified Thrombi in the Common Femoral, Proximal Femoral, Profunda Femoris, Mid-Femoral, and Popliteal Venous Segments of the Leg; Scan DVT Differential Diagnosis Conditions (e.g., Baker’s Cyst)
  • Doppler & Imaging Modes: Color-Flow Doppler, Pulsed-Wave Doppler, Power Doppler
  • Scanning Approaches: Groin, Upper thigh, Mid thigh, Popliteal fossa
  • Transducer Types: Linear
  • Special Case Features: Compression

Continued Medical Education

This Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) - Lower Extremity: Core Clinical Module focuses on the sonographic evaluation of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT), including both first-time and recurrent DVTs. Course lessons cover normal lower extremity vasculature, sonographic anatomy, and scanning technique. Multiple DVT ultrasound protocols (ranging from point-of-care to comprehensive whole-leg ultrasound examination) are discussed. Multiple real-patient DVT case studies and alternative conditions included in the differential diagnosis of DVT (e.g., Baker's cyst) are presented.

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.

The American College of Emergency Physicians designates this enduring material for a maximum of 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Approved by the American College of Emergency Physicians for a maximum of 4 hours of ACEP Category I credit.
