Validated Merits of Ultrasound Simulation-based Education
With ultrasound simulation-based training
learners gain real-time scanning experience and can observe pathologies that they might not otherwise have exposure to
learners can more easily acquire competency in psychomotor, problem-solving, and creative thinking skills and gain confidence more quickly
learners demonstrate actual improvement in familiarity with the equipment (this has been shown to be most notable when performing fetal echocardiography)
As outlined above, the cumulative benefits of high-fidelity simulation-based training for obstetric ultrasound confirm and validate its value as a reliable mode of education.
