Medaphor announces launch of new ScanExaminer simulator

MedaPhor Group plc (AIM:MED) (‘MedaPhor’) announces today the launch of ScanExaminer, a new ultrasound skills examination simulator for hospitals and examination bodies to exam a medical professional’s ultrasound skills.

The system’s unique combination of real feel probe manipulation in all scanning planes and ultrasound sweeps based on real patient scans, that have been compiled using MedaPhor’s unique simulation of real patient scans, enables hospitals and external examination bodies to truly test a physician’s ultrasound image interpretation and probe manipulation skills.

Unlike medical training simulators, ScanExaminer removes all training aids and functions (curriculum-based learning modules, cut-away anatomy, probe guidance, recorded expert playback, didactic learning resources and real-time metric based assessment) to offer examiners a library of pathologies and normal patient scans, combined with a realistic, virtual reality based scanning experience, with which to comprehensively test a clinician’s ultrasound examination skills.
