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:

  • Anatomy & Physiology of the Neonatal & Infant Brain
  • Sonographic Neonatal & Infant Neurological Anatomy
  • Imaging Window and Planes
  • Tips & Pitfalls in Infant and Neonatal Neurosonography
  • Normal Intracranial Function of Neonates
  • Ventriculomegaly vs. Hydrocephalus

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: Pediatric Only
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: Normal Neonatal Brains, Ventriculomegaly, Hydrocephalus, Intraventricular Hemorrhage, Right Germinal Matrix Hemorrhage, Subependymal Hemorrhage, Periventricular Venous Infarction, Grade IV Right and Left Periventricular Hemorrhage, Porencephalic Cyst, Extra-Axial CSF Collections
  • Scanning Approaches: Coronal and Sagittal Anterior Fontanelle
  • Transducer Types: Phased Array
  • Special Case Features: Anatomic Layer Removal

Continued Medical Education

This Neonatal and Infant Neurosonography: Advanced Clinical Module teaches the fundamental elements of how to perform neonatal and infant neurosonography. The Course begins with a thorough overview of the neuroanatomy of preterm and term neonates and infants, and explores the clinical indications for sonographic examination. Subsequent lessons provide an in-depth review of sonographic neuroanatomy and imaging techniques, and introduce several more commonly encountered pathologic conditions. In-module questions and a final mastery test assess didactic knowledge. The patented SonoSimulator® will help you develop the requisite cognitive task awareness and visuospatial skills required to perform neonatal and infant neurosonography.
