SonoSim Launches Cloud-Based OB-GYN Ultrasound Training Modules

January 19, 2018 — SonoSim Inc. has officially launched a comprehensive OB-GYN ultrasound training solution in support of a recently announced consensus-based training curriculum. SonoSim's cloud-based training platform is intended to help educators implement a newly announced and widely endorsed OB-GYN training curriculum and competency assessment recommendations. The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) assembled a multi-society task force of experts in obstetrics and gynecology, radiology, and medical education to develop a standardized curriculum and competency evaluation process. In January 2018, the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine and Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology officially published the recommendations.

"As residency programs in obstetrics and gynecology and radiology have had to add more breadth of training into their curricula, the time spent learning ultrasound has likely diminished in many programs," stated Prof. Alfred Z. Abuhamad, M.D., Mason C. Andrews Chairman and vice dean for clinical affairs at Eastern Virginia Medical School. "Given the technical difficulty inherent in ultrasound examinations, the presence of a comprehensive, standardized, and collaborative process for ultrasound training will significantly enhance the expertise of practitioners and the overall quality of ultrasound examinations."

SonoSim's comprehensive OB-GYN ultrasound training program will deliver 14 training modules with over 125 SonoSimulator hands-on, simulation-based training cases across a variety of essential OB-GYN topics. Each SonoSim Module consists of cloud-based didactic lessons, knowledge assessments and real-patient hands-on training cases, including transvaginal ultrasound scanning.

An estimated 44 million people worldwide are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia. About 5.8 million people in the United States live with the disease, where it is the sixth leading cause of death overall. While there is not yet a cure for Alzheimer’s, researchers are working to find treatment options to delay its onset and prevent it from developing.

DBT, sometimes called 3-D mammography, emerged in the last decade as a powerful tool for breast cancer screening

Images in a 57-year-old woman noted to have "good prognosis" invasive cancer detected at digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) screening. (a) Craniocaudal view of the left breast obtained with the two-dimensional digital mammography (DM) portion of the DM/DBT screening study demonstrates a subtle area of distortion in the medial left breast. (b) Single-slice image from the left craniocaudal DBT portion of the screening study shows an area of bridging distortion (circle). (c) Electronically enlarged image of the area of concern seen on the left craniocaudal view in a single DBT slice as shown in b. (d) Targeted US scan demonstrates two small adjacent irregular solid masses. US-guided core biopsy yielded an invasive carcinoma of the tubular subtype that was estrogen receptor positive, progesterone receptor positive, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative. The results of the sentinel node biopsy were negative. Image courtesy of the Radiological Society of North America
