SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SonoSim, Inc., developer of the SonoSim® Ultrasound Training Solution, 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™ brought never before seen realism to ultrasound training by instantly transforming live volunteers and mannequins into ultrasound training cases with real pathologic conditions. Serving as the world's leading convention on simulation in healthcare, the IMSH conference connects prominent industry experts, academic institutions and companies with the collective goal of advancing simulation in healthcare.
"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 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.
