Augmented Reality (AR) is an exciting 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.

HeartWorks AR 2.0 is now available and contains new functionality to improve learners’ understanding of how to acquire the standard imaging planes for TEE and TTE.

Learn Cardiac Anatomy and Echocardiography Anywhere

HeartWorks AR 2.0

HeartWorks Augmented Reality is a highly portable solution with the fidelity of the HeartWorks simulator pre-loaded onto a Samsung tablet. Many of the standard HeartWorks features are available in this version, with a selection of viewing modes, including anatomical slicing, structure labelling and highlighting, and standard cardiac ultrasound planes.

A 3D representation of the TTE and TEE probes has now also been added to the standard imaging planes. This will help build an understanding of the probe manipulation and positioning required to acquire these image planes.

A transparent 3D rib cage has also been added to the image of the 3D heart. This gives useful context to the heart position, as well as helping to understanding the rib spaces used in the standard TTE image planes. The rib cage and probes can be turned on and off using the buttons in the bottom right of the screen.

HeartWorks AR Expert Review

Felipe Teran, MD, FACEP provides an in-depth review of the HeartWorks AR system. Dr. Teran is an Emergency Physician in the Division of Emergency Ultrasound and investigator at the Center for Resuscitation Science in the Department of Emergency Medicine at University of Pennsylvania.

An educational tool that’s versatile, easy to use and portable

With HeartWorks AR learning can take place anywhere at any time. From self-directed exploration of cardiac anatomy, single student and tutor training sessions, 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 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.

What’s Included

With HeartWorks Augmented Reality you can now learn cardiac anatomy and ultrasound anywhere. You can hold a fully interactive and accurate 3D heart in your hands, label structures, slice in any plane and overlay TEE and TTE ultrasound views. The quality of the HeartWorks simulator and learning preloaded onto a Samsung portable tablet.

What’s in the box:

  • Samsung S6 Tablet (with the HeartWorks AR program preloaded)
  • Samsung S Pen
  • Tablet case
  • UK charger
  • Multi-country charger
  • Printed user guide
  • Printed QR code


HeartWorks AR program specification:

  • Highly accurate and interactive beating 3D heart, which can be manipulated by touching the screen.
  • ECG Trace, which can be paused or moved to any point in the cardiac cycle.
  • Slice the 3D heart in any plane with an easy to use slider, the slice can also be fixed and inverted.
  • Remove any anatomical section of the 3D heart.
  • Over 150 intracardiac structures defined, which can be highlighted in the 3D heart and on the ultrasound image, each one with pre-programmed default view for optimal viewing.
  • Gold-standard imaging views for the twenty-eight standard TEE imaging planes, and the twenty standard TTE imaging planes can be shown within the 3D heart.
  • The transparency of the ultrasound over the 3D heart can be adjusted with a slider.
  • In-built help text for every feature of the program.
  • Three modes for running the program: 3D Viewing Mode, Image Target (AR) and Ground Plane (AR).
  • 3D Viewing Mode is the default mode. In this mode the 3D heart model is shown on screen, the system can therefore be used without the QR code or a suitable surface.
  • Image Target Mode is one of two Augmented Reality (AR) modes. In this mode the 3D heart model is positioned within your surroundings using a printed QR code.
  • Ground Plane is the other AR mode. In this mode the 3D heart model is positioned on a suitable surface within your surroundings using the camera.
  • Connects easily to a projector or large screen, using a HDMI cable and HDMI to USB-C adaptor (not included). Or using the screen mirroring feature to connect to a TV.
  • Standard 12 month warranty, not including damage or loss
