This module is used on the Ultrasound Mentor’s pediatric manikin.

It offers tasks and clinical cases presenting various findings relevant to abdominal ultrasound examination in children. Procedural tasks offer step-by-step guided scanning protocols upon suspected appendicitis and intussusception to practice anatomy recognition and standard view acquisition. Clinical cases present various unique features, such as the option to run a randomized case, visualize Color Doppler varying per pathology, and perform a feeding test that allows examination of food passing through the pyloric channel.

Increasing diagnostic complexity is featured.

Learning Objectives:

  • To identify, understand and capture ultrasound images of organs in the abdominal cavity such as liver, kidneys, spleen, abdominal aorta, gallbladder, pancreas and appendix in a healthy patient
  • To demonstrate and evaluate diverse abdominal findings and pathologies
  • To practice the diagnostic workflow and reporting of the clinical findings for various virtual patient cases
