SonoSim transforms medical education by placing virtual ultrasound devices, patients, and teachers into lab coat pockets SonoSim.com converts personal computers into ultrasound training systems.

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative online medical education company, SonoSim, Inc. introduced the SonoSim® Personal Solution at the recent AIUM conference held in NYC in April 2013.  SonoSim's unique-patented approach allows users to convert their own computers into personal ultrasound training systems. Handheld ultrasound technology is a proven way of improving medical care and reducing healthcare costs. A longstanding and seemingly insurmountable barrier to wide-scale adoption of these lifesaving devices has been the high opportunity cost of training care providers. The SonoSim® Personal Solution overcomes this barrier by providing integrated hands-on ultrasound training, online courses, and performance assessment anytime-anywhere. Trainees can access patients on-demand and virtually scan real-patient cases comprising a myriad of pathologies.

We anticipated a positive response to the breakthrough SonoSim® Personal Solution," said Dr. Dan Katz, SonoSim VP of Sales & Product Development, "but the response has been overwhelming and has exceeded our highest expectations. I can't tell you how many attendees said this was the best new product at the conference." The SonoSim® Ultrasound Training Solution was proven to be as effective as live-instructor training for teaching hands-on ultrasound scanning in a previous UCLA study (Chung 2012). The SonoSim® Personal Solution literally fits in a lab coat pocket and can be purchased from the SonoSim® online store starting at $2,995.  This represents a 20 to 30-fold cost savings relative to alternative commercially available ultrasound simulators.

"The SonoSim® Ultrasound Training solution is one of the more comprehensive and easy-to-use ultrasound training solutions available. In my over 25 years of experience with ultrasound and my exposure to multiple, different training courses, programs, and teachers, the SonoSim® Personal Solution, is one of the better ones I have personally been exposed to," stated Cathy Ruff, RVT GE Healthcare.

SonoSim develops and markets state-of-the-art ultrasound training for physicians, nurses, students and careproviders 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.
