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:

  • Gastrointestinal Ultrasound Application
  • Anatomy of the GI-Tract, Gallbladder & Biliary System
  • Sonographic Anatomy of the Gastrointestinal Tract, including Bowel Gas, Appendicitis & Intussusception
  • Sonographic Anatomy of the Gallbladder & Biliary System
  • Sonographic Techniques
  • Case Studies Evaluating & Diagnosing Small Bowel Obstruction, Pathological Gas, Appendicitis, Intussusception, Cholelithiasis, and other Gallbladder cases
  • Pearls & Pitfalls in Evaluating the Intestinal & Biliary Systems with Ultrasound

SonoSimulator Scanning Cases
