The CompactSim is our newest simulation based ultrasound training system. The CompactSim enables medical professionals to develop and enrich their ultrasound scanning and interpretation skills in a patient-free, controlled environment.
Clinical ultrasound requires highly skilled medical professionals. Academic institutions and continuing education programs that traditionally teach these skills are faced with decreased access to clinical training sites and higher educational costs. As a result, the need for high efficiency learning is significant.
The CompactSim allows medical professionals to achieve optimal educational outcomes through increased control over clinical case presentation, the freedom to learn at their own pace, and the ability to incorporate truly objective skills set assessment. The CompactSim is the answer to today's educational needs.
- Patient-free, life-like, clinical training
- Increased control of clinical experiences and skills progression
- Objective method for evaluation and skills assessment
- Mistake-forgiving without critical consequences
- Diverse patient types, normal and abnormal cases
- Reproducible clinical experiences
- Minimal operating expenses
The CompactSim's simulation capabilities originated from aviation simulation and medical imaging technologies. The synergistic combination of these powerful technologies creates a lifelike experience. CompactSim users perform "virtual" ultrasound examinations by scanning a human-like mannequin, accessing stored volumes of real patient ultrasound data. The CompactSim tracks the exact position, angle and movement of the probe in relation to the area of examination. As the probe moves across the mannequin, the on-screen image responds accordingly, providing a real time, authentic scanning experience.
The CompactSim's task-oriented learning format is an innovative approach to ultrasound education. CompactSim's curriculum augments traditional methods of ultrasound education by bridging the inherent gaps associated with live patient scanning where case diversity, pathologies, and time constraints prevent access to a thorough clinical experience.
The curriculum is modular in format, focusing on anatomic areas (i.e. abdominal, obstetrics, vascular etc). We offer over 390 cases taken from real patients. Each module includes a series of clinical cases available on CD ROMs, instructor manuals, user worksheets, and suggested curricula.Each clinical case contains case-specific data, exam, protocols, educational tasks, patient clinical histories, reference images, and a thorough case analysis. Each module includes a variety of normal and abnormal cases which compares to the experience gained in a real clinical setting. This comprehensive approach to ultrasound education is easily integrated into any existing curriculum.
Ultrasound learning cases are compiled in sets of CD-ROMs according to topic. Education Modules are currently available for: Abdomen, Obstetrics, Gynecology, Transvaginal Gynecology, Transvaginal Obstetrics, Breast, Vascular – Carotid, Neck – Thyroid, and Emergency Medicine – FAST, Biliary, Pelvic and Abdominal Aorta.
The medical content of these modules was developed under the supervision of medical centers from Israel and the USA which include: Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, USA; University of Michigan Medical Center, USA; Meir Medical Center and Sharei-Zedek Medical Center, Israel.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT & ENRICHMENT
The CompactSim is an invaluable tool for teaching students, residents and medical professionals new to the field of ultrasound imaging. Accelerated learning is easily achieved because the inconsistencies and limitations associated with live-patient scanning in the clinical setting are eliminated. Users rapidly develop scan plane orientation and cross- sectional anatomy recognition skills as they progress through each clinical case. In addition, the task-oriented protocol driven educational materials help the user develop proper examination practices.The CompactSim's modules feature cases of varying to match the developing skills of participants, thus consistently providing a challenging educational experience.
Medical professionals with existing ultrasound imaging experience may use the CompactSim to cross-train by developing new skills or enriching existing ones. The CompactSim allows the experienced user to examine uncommon pathologies or practice difficult/sensitive procedures.
The CompactSim is a versatile educational system that maybe adapted to different teaching styles. It allows educators the freedom to provide self-guided tutorial sessions for individuals, or conduct faculty assisted workshops and lectures to larger groups.
One of the benefits of the CompactSim's simulation technology is the ability to consistently assess an individual's skills with an objective, standardized methodology. Individuals can be evaluated using the same platform, clinical cases, tasks and questions. This approach is a powerful tool for documenting educational achievements, determining remediation requirements, pre-hire testing, and on-going competency assessment.
