The Neck Module for the Ultrasound Mentor provides hands-on training of neck ultrasound examination, using a designated linear probe. It incorporates hands-on procedural tasks and virtual patient clinical cases, accompanied by comprehensive educational aids.
The tasks include self-guided step-by-step neck scanning protocols (Thyroid and Advanced Measurements). Virtual patient cases will challenge the learner to independently scan, recognize relevant structures, document and reach a diagnosis. The cases are aimed at training in technical and clinical aspects of the examination.
Scenarios include varying diagnostic complexities and such as a healthy patient, suspicious, benign and malignant thyroid nodule as well as carotid artery stenosis and dissection.
