ULTRASOUND SIMULATOR BY SONOFIT Innovation “Made in Germany”

New perspectives during medical education and trainings in ultrasound handling are possible thanks to Sonofit’s simulator.

It offers interactive ultrasound trainings in real-time including tutorials, feedback functions and also supports to develop awareness for pathologies. All of it can be done during a class-room training or alone. This kind of flexibility is possible solely with Sonofit’s ultrasound simulator.

The high quality 3D ultrasound volume can simultaneously be presented with CT or MRT images. This is globally a unique feature for an ultrasound simulator. Both data

sets are comparable with the ultrasound picture. Expert knowledge from the database on displayed images can be called at the push of a button to support autodidactic learning.

Sonofit’s simulator contains almost 1’000 real, but anonymous patient records, documented and explained by medical and engineering staff alike. Many of them resemble hospital files including additional information such as diagnostic pictures and results of examinations as well as from laboratories. These pathologies are assembled and sorted by medical areas (modules) in the library (database). The trainings are conducted on mannequins with different “ultrasound probes”.

Change of perspective on a high levelExpansion of the diagnostic view and its comparability due to the simultaneous presentation of two diagnostic modes (native and contrast resolution on split screen)

Colours for a larger spectrumAdditional information via a dynamic presentation of spectral and colour Dopplers

Familiar elements and functions“Look and feel” of current ultrasound systems for an intuitive use; realistic probes allow also trainings of difficult examinations

Training on The Bigger Picture

Knowledge is colourfulTraining on anatomy: coloured markers describe and explain vessels and organs

Hitting the mark For all pathologies: freehand puncture trainings allow the navigation with a real needle to prepare for example for biopsies or minimally invasive surgeries

Skills Lab: Learning with the ultrasound probeIndividual activation of guiding systems: green bar, markers and static or dynamic navigation modes for an independent, interactive training and individual levels of challenges

Fit for Reality

Layer by layer in good companySimultaneous presentation of two imaging modalities (ultrasound in combination with CT or MRT on split screen) for an instant comparison

High Quality Equipment and Sophisticated Details

A compact system on wheels} Big wheels allow a secure transport of the entire system even

on rough sites or across the thresholds of lifts

} High speed electronic with SSD storage processes big data in a very short time

} Water protected user panel with track ball and illuminated plastic foil keyboard for comfortable working

} Accessories fitting: ultrasound probes and needles are easily accessible and securely stored

} Patient mannequin made of a special, elastic material with a smooth surface

Anti-reflective and scratch resistant LED TFT monitor} A folding display, similar to a notebook, for space-saving and

secure transports

} Excellent visibility from a broad angle onto the anti-reflective screen

Sonofit Library (examples)} Skills Lab module: anatomy } Internal medicine, Emergency medicine} Cardiology, TTE, TEE} Gynaecology/Obstetrics} Mamma sonography, Vaginal sonography} Urology, Rectal sonography} Standard languages: German and English, other languages

facultative} Open architecture: expansion of additional diagnoses possible

Sonofit GmbH

Sonofit GmbH is a subsidiary of MedCom GmbH in Darmstadt. MedCom itself is a spin-off of the world‘s leading institute for applied research in Visual Computing, the Fraunhofer Institute IGD, based in Darmstadt. Sonofit develops and markets interactive ultrasound simulators “made in Germany” for applied trainings of medical staff.

Founded in 2000, Sonofit presented its first real-time ultrasound simulator in Germany in 2001. All functionalities and control elements corresponded to a conventional ultrasound system. From 2007 onwards, the simulator could also be used within almost all ultrasound faculties, including the usage of a dynamic colour Doppler and freehand punctures, performed with a real needle.

Authentic pathologies of real patients are virtually loaded into the patient mannequin. They deliver a genuine training experience. If necessary, additional guiding systems empower the students to a full interactive and independent training. The different imaging technologies, shown on a split screen, enable the students to compare ultrasound images simultaneously with CT or MRT. This is globally a unique feature for an ultrasound simulator.
