Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a minimally invasive procedure to assess digestive (gastrointestinal) and lung diseases. A special endoscope uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the lining and walls of your digestive tract and chest, nearby organs such as the pancreas and liver, and lymph nodes. EUS has become very important imaging tool for the evaluation of certain gastrointestinal disorders, but this challenging procedure requires both cognitive and technical skills that need to be trained. Usually, this training is done in workshops using ex-vivo animal parts, but with our prototype simulator you can have more realistic visual simulation.
Simedis has developed EUS prototype in collaboration with medical community, hands-on training simulation for practicing both linear and radial EUS. We have equipped the simulator with a real echoendoscope, as well as with two monitors and realistic simulation using a real CT data.
Our EUS prototype has been used in many Workshops, such as in :
