SonoSim LiveScan instantly transforms live volunteers and manikins into ultrasound training cases with real pathologic conditions. Combined with the SonoSim Ultrasound Training Solution, which integrates didactic content and knowledge assessment, SonoSim LiveScan provides an unparalleled training experience that makes bedside ultrasound simulation possible anytime, anywhere.

Enhance Bedside Training & High-Stakes Simulation

SonoSim LiveScan is ideal for teaching and assessing how well learners integrate ultrasound findings towards medical decision-making during standardized patient examinations, and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs).

Test and train in ultrasound image acquisition and interpretation skills, including recognition of key anatomical landmarks, important image artifacts, and both unique and common pathologies.

SonoSim LiveScan Information

SonoSim LiveScan is a group training product that brings ultrasound simulation to life. SonoSim LiveScan allows users to use a special probe to simulate ultrasound scans in live volunteers or existing medical manikins.

SonoSim LiveScan can be used on any person, with the following exceptions: SonoSim LiveScan Tags must NOT be used on anyone with an electronic pacemaker, implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, or other implantable electronic medical device. SonoSim LiveScan components may interfere with such medical devices. SonoSim LiveScan should not be used in conjunction with the Laerdal-SonoSim Ultrasound Solution or its manikins.

The one-time use human tags are manufactured with a hypoallergenic skin adhesive and are designed for one-time usage. The reusable mannequin tags are designed to adhere to industry standard simulation mannequins and come with a 12-month warranty, provided recommended usage practices are observed.

A thin layer of cloth or a thin sheet of nonmetallic material will not typically interfere with SonoSim LiveScan tag performance. However, any nonmetallic material thicker than two millimeters may substantially diminish tag performance. Any metallic material covering the tags will disable the tags. Avoid applying any direct sudden force over the tags (e.g., hitting, hammering, etc.) as this will damage the delicate hardware within the tags.

Do not expose the tags to water or other liquids (e.g., ultrasound gel) as they are not waterproof, and liquids can impede tag performance.

SonoSim LiveScan Tags are covered under SonoSim Care for 12 months following date of purchase. With SonoSim Care, any defective tags will be replaced at no charge. SonoSim Care does not cover mechanical damage to tags.
