U/S Mentor Testimonials

Sanja Kupesic Plavsic, MD, PhD

“Working with the U/S Mentor helps shorten our students’ learning curve, both in terms of their scanning capabilities and improved clinical reasoning.  Learning new scanning protocols in a scaled, self-directed manner is also quite useful, especially when considering the patient discomfort, intimate nature of endovaginal sonography and limited faculty spare time.”

“We have used the U/S Mentor extensively, and I recommend it very strongly to train fellows in cardiology and cardiac anesthesiology to improve their TEE skills and practice performing comprehensive TEE procedures.  The training modules allow for incremental levels of comfort and expertise in being able to acquire the optimal images for accurate diagnosis.  This simulator can also be used during CME courses under the guidance of an expert, to assess skill levels and suggest interventions to improve the quality and timeliness of performing comprehensive examinations.”

“I am very pleased with the Simbionix U/S Mentor and find it integral in my teaching. I purchased the cardiac package to overcome a major gap that students have from knowing little to nothing about adult echocardiography to learning and understanding the anatomy of the heart. My high expectations for its implementation were exceeded as my students independently take extra time to use the simulator.”
