SonoMan® Diagnostic Ultrasound Simulator

SonoMan is an affordable diagnostic ultrasound training platform designed for physicians to become proficient in the use of trauma, emergency/bedside ultrasound in evaluating critically ill patients. The system offers the most extensive image and video pathology library with six software modules, each providing up to seven clinical cases presenting with normal or abnormal findings. This allows instructors to mimic a variety of pathologies in emergent or critical care settings.

The system includes a body form embedded with 258 image locations, a simulated ultrasound probe, and up to six software modules. Instructors can pre-program pathologies allowing users to assess, locate, and then diagnose the patient while visualizing the complete thoracic and abdominal region.  As the simulated probe scans the body form, real patient ultrasound images are displayed on the computer monitor.  For added realism, videos have been embedded in target zones that coincide with each image.

* The SonoMan System is not sold separately - one or more of the following modules listed below must also be purchased. PC/Laptop not included.


•F.A.S.T. Module

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
