3D Systems proudly supported the program with the Simbionix Ultrasound Mentor. The realism of the training simulator coupled with the wide range of modules and cases provided the ideal standardized patient replacement.
Drs. Shuping Ge, James Starc, and Jie Sun used the Ultrasound Mentor during their presentations, showing the different views that they use in pediatric cases. Modules utilized included Advanced Echo, Bedside Echo, and Fetal Echo. The sessions allowed the participants to see a demonstration of the topics covered with views of the physician’s hands on the simulator, as well as visuals of the procedures shown on the screen.
Simbionix simulators have always provided a standardized patient alternative for many medical specialties. This solution has never been timelier than during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional simulation benefits include the ability to demonstrate a wide range of pathologies, cases, and procedures in a safe environment. This was certainly the case during the virtual conference held at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.
