Ultrasound-Guided Procedural Training Using Emergency Technologies
Computer-based procedural training and educational methods are being explored to practice procedures without risking iatrogenic injury. The project will develop a desktop computer-based platform that will train users how to perform ultrasound-guided procedures. It should provide a platform for the development of additional procedural training using text, audio, digital video, 3D modeling, and force feedback.
Funding for this work is provided by the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) and the Department of Defense (DoD).
