Summary

The project developed an open-source low cost abdominal ultrasound training simulator to augment ultrasound training and do away with the necessity of hands-on sessions with patients. It developed a simulation device to solve the limitations. The device simulated various ultrasound scenarios in real-time or near real-time. The key benefits of this research project were: • It provided hands-on ultrasound training experience to medical students • It also eliminated undue burden on patients in a training setup on medical ultrasound.
