SonoSim® CaseBuilder lets ultrasound educators apply knowledge and creativity by creating customized ultrasound training cases
SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — SonoSim, Inc., a leading provider of ultrasound education and simulation, and creator of the SonoSim® Ultrasound Training Solution and SonoSim LiveScan®, has announced the official commercial release of its latest innovation, SonoSim® CaseBuilder. SonoSim® CaseBuilder lets ultrasound educators create custom ultrasound training cases and bring them to life.
As ultrasound proficiency standards evolve and become more rigorous, ultrasound educators are in need of more robust training and assessment tools. SonoSim® CaseBuilder further pushes the boundaries of medical simulation, while providing educators a fun, creative, and effective training resource. SonoSim® CaseBuilder expands on SonoSim LiveScan® technology, allowing for educators to handpick and combine ultrasound datasets in a virtual patient, and then scan those datasets in real life using training mannequins or live volunteers. With hundreds of SonoSim LiveScan® ultrasound data sets to choose from and multiple imaging window combinations, the possibilities are virtually limitless.
“This degree of customization with the SonoSim® CaseBuilder is a huge step forward for ultrasound educators, students, and ultimately, patients,” states Dr. John Bailitz, Emergency Ultrasound Division Director and practicing physician at Cook County Hospital. “The ability to craft these unique cases will make the SonoSimulator® much more useful everywhere, from local classes to international conferences.”
SonoSim® CaseBuilder makes it easy to integrate ultrasound into current classroom curricula or objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs), by allowing instructors to customize the cases for their students. Cases can constantly be edited, deleted, and created to carry ultrasound training throughout various learning blocks.
“I used the SonoSim® CaseBuilder interface to create general medicine cases for an upcoming national meeting. I found the interface intuitive and easy enough to navigate, requiring no additional instruction,” states Dr. Renee Dversdal, Co-Director at Oregon Health and Science University, Point of Care Ultrasound. “It also gives us the flexibility to focus on exam types and scenarios outside of the more popular emergency medicine or critical care protocols, making it more relevant for our participants and tailoring the cases to our specific needs.”
SonoSim is now accepting orders for this highly requested application.
