Soft Tissue Clinical Ultrasound Training

Learn how to use sonography to assess the tissues of the body, including subcutaneous tissue, fascia, muscle, tendon, vasculature, and bone. This module includes optimal transducer selection, imaging techniques, and scanning approaches for sonographically evaluating normal and pathological soft tissue. The sonographic appearance of abscesses and how they can be distinguished from cellulitis is discussed, as well as the use of ultrasound in localizing and removing foreign bodies from soft tissue.

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 multimedia courses are didactic and incorporate in-course knowledge checks with real-time feedback. Each course concludes with a Mastery Test that is automatically graded.

The course in this module covers topics including:

  • Soft Tissue Anatomy
  • Sonographic Anatomy of the Various Tissue Types
  • Sonographic Evaluation of Foreign Bodies and Edema
  • Sonographic Technique with Normal Tissue, Cellulitis & Abscess
  • Imaging Tips & Pitfalls for Evaluating Soft Tissue with Ultrasound

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: Male & Female, 8 Adult & 2 Pediatric
  • Relevant Findings/Pathology: Anterior Thigh Abscess, Posterior Neck Abscess, Nasal Bone Fracture, Soft-Tissue Edema, Pretibial Edema, Right Chest Wall Soft-Tissue Mass - Lymphoma, Enlargement of Anterior Cervical Lymph Nodes, Gluteal Soft-Tissue Hematoma, Retrosacral Cellulitis, Infected Thyroglossal Duct Cyst
  • Transducer Types: Linear
  • Special Case Features: Anatomic Layer Removal
