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:

  • Indications for Ultrasound Examination
  • Normal Gynecologic Anatomy
  • Female Pelvis Physiology
  • Transabdominal, Transvaginal Sonographic Techniques
  • Uterine Positions
  • Uterus Evaluation & Measurement
  • Case Studies of Posterior Cul-de-Sac Free Fluid, and Intrauterine Device ( IUD )

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, Female
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: Varying Uterine Fundal Positioning (Anteverted, Anteflexed, Retroverted, Retroflexed), Nabothian Cysts, Physiology vs. Pathologic Fluid Screening, IUD-Placement Assessment, Assessment of Endometrial Phasic Changes, Color Doppler Application on Adnexal Region
  • Doppler & Imaging Modes: Color-Flow Doppler
  • Scanning Approaches: Transabdominal, Transvaginal
  • Transducer Types: Curvilinear, Transvaginal
  • Special Case Features: Anatomic Layer Removal

Continued Medical Education

This GYN Ultrasound of Nonpregnant Normal Uterus: Advanced Clinical Module begins with an overview of normal female pelvic anatomy and physiology, and common indications for pelvic ultrasonography. Optimal transducer selection, patient preparation and positioning, and proper ultrasound transducer disinfection techniques are reviewed. A complete description of the use transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound techniques to examine a variety of uterine conditions is provided. The Course concludes by introducing the Z-technique as a method of reconstructing the midcoronal plane of the uterus.
