Enhance Military Simulation Training for Combat Casualty Care

SonoSim Ultrasound Training Supports Military Force Readiness

Developed under a DoD SBIR contract, SonoSim has overcome historical barriers to ultrasound training in combat casualty care and military simulation. SonoSim helps develop critical ultrasound skills prior to and during active military duty deployments. SonoSim LiveScan® is particularly useful for multiple casualty incident training as it uses real pathologic ultrasound cases to train how to integrate ultrasound findings towards medical decision-making.


SonoSim Ultrasound Training for Military SIM & Combat Casualty Care

SonoSim has worked with military medicine specialists to develop an ecosystem of ultrasound training solutions and supporting resources that transform ultrasound education and training. Our military SIM solutions enhance combat casualty care, from in-theatre point-of-injury to the care of returned wounded warriors.

Develop Medical Personnel & Military Force Readiness with Ultrasound Simulation

Integrate Ultrasound into Combat Casualty Care Scenario-Based Training

Hand-carried ultrasound has become indispensable in delivering optimal combat casualty care and has rapidly become standard within the military health system (MHS).  SonoSim's ultrasound training & simulation ecosystem has been specifically designed to support military care providers learn & apply this valuable operator-dependent skill. SonoSim prepares military care providers to apply ultrasound to deliver care to beneficiaries of the TriCare system, in-theatre at the point-of-injury, and after the return of service personnel to the continental United States.

Common Barriers to Ultrasound Training 

Traditional training methods can present hurdles to achieving ultrasound competency.  This often can limit widespread adoption within both military and civilian health systems. These barriers can be effectively mitigated by implementing ultrasound simulation into Military SIM.
