Augmented Reality (AR) is now an exciting and integral part of the HeartWorks learning experience. Through tablet-based AR, students of cardiac anatomy and echo can now immerse themselves in the critically acclaimed and anatomically correct HeartWorks 3D heart. They can hold it in their hands, turn it around and look deep inside for an unparalleled understanding of structures and ultrasound views.

Cardiac Anatomy as you’ve never experienced before…
An educational tool that’s versatile, easy to use and portable

HeartWorks AR allows users to increase and vary the timing and location of learning episodes including use in the clinical environment. From self-directed exploration of cardiac anatomy, single student and tutor training episodes, and demonstrating anatomy and imaging principles to small group tutorials, the display can also be projected onto a larger screen when teaching and lecturing to large groups.

Learn to recognise TTE & TEE (TOE) imaging planes simply, quickly and effectively!

Slicing and removing sections of the beating, interactive 3D heart model reveals underlying structures. When overlaying the corresponding ultrasound imaging plane, a clear understanding of image relationships becomes easier and the time typrically required to learn this complex skill is significantly reduced.

Helping patients understand their condition and their treatment

HeartWorks AR is not just an engaging learning tool, it can be used in the operating room or echocardiography laboratory, whilst performing patient imaging to illustrate particular anatomic relationships relevant to the clinical scan. It can help explain anatomy and abnormalities to other clinicians, and help the clinician explain heart structure and function to patients. Disease states as well as therapeutic options can be more clearly illustrated.

The Complete Training System

HeartWorks is available in single modality options for TEE or TTE.

Better training, Better healthcare…
Dr. Thomas Burch M.D., Cardiac Anesthesiologist from Boston Children’s Hospital gives a personal account of how simulation training using the HeartWorks system helped to increase his confidence with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in his patient care.

“I first came across the HeartWorks Simulator back in 2005 when I began teaching Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE). At that time it was extremely difficult (essentially impossible) to teach hands-on TEE outside the hospital…
