SonoSim, Inc., developer of the SonoSim® Ultrasound Training Solution, has established a new standard in medical simulation with its unveiling of SonoSim LiveScan™ at the 2014 annual International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in San Francisco, CA. SonoSim LiveScan™ is a first of its kind product that brings never-before-seen realism to ultrasound training by instantly transforming live volunteers and mannequins into ultrasound training cases with real pathologic conditions.

“The 2014 IMSH conference served as the perfect venue to introduce our highly-anticipated SonoSim LiveScan™, and it truly impressed. Whereas ultrasound simulation has traditionally been reliant upon inanimate mannequins that use computer animation, SonoSim’s LiveScan™ was demonstrated on a live female model that instantly showcased pathology derived from real patients,” said Dr. Dan Katz, vice president of SonoSim. “In fact, some conference attendees left convinced that our normal, healthy model truly had a left ventricular thrombus and a twin pregnancy!”

SonoSim LiveScan™ ushers in a new era in ultrasound simulation by enabling users to seamlessly transform live volunteers and training mannequins into a wide range of 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 anytime-anywhere bedside ultrasound simulation possible.

SonoSim develops and markets state-of-the-art ultrasound training for physicians, nurses, students and care providers of all backgrounds who need to continually expand and improve their ultrasound skills. The company has a foundation of intellectual property that has enabled creation of an easy-to-use, affordable, and portable ultrasound education and training solution. The company’s products allow learners to take control of how, when, and where they learn.
