Mixed Reality Ultrasound Simulation: Deepscope’s New System




Ultrasound simulation is an essential tool for medical education, allowing students to practice procedures in a realistic and controlled environment. However, simulation systems can be expensive and limited by the number of available manikins. Deepscope, a company specializing in ultrasound simulation and training, has developed an innovative mixed reality ultrasound system that addresses these challenges. The Deepscope Mixed Reality Simulator provides high-quality ultrasound imaging and works on any manikin, making it a cost-effective solution for training more medical professionals in this vital skill.


Ultrasound is a difficult skill to master, requiring a combination of cognitive understanding and motor skills. Traditionally, students learn ultrasound by scanning patients under the guidance of an experienced practitioner. This method has limitations, as it’s challenging for instructors to provide real-time feedback, and students may not encounter certain pathologies during their training period. Ultrasound simulators offer a controlled learning environment where students can practice scanning techniques, interpret ultrasound images, and encounter a range of pathologies.


The Deepscope Mixed Reality Simulator takes ultrasound simulation to a new level with its mixed reality technology. Unlike traditional simulators that rely on physical manikins, Deepscope combines the manikin with virtual ultrasound images. Students can either wear mixed reality headset that overlay the ultrasound images onto the manikin’s body, creating a highly realistic simulation experience, or they can place the headset on a stand and see the ultrasound images on a screen. This mixed reality approach provides students with 6 degree of freedom movement over the surface of the body, in the same way as an expensive ultrasound simulator.


One of the significant advantages of the Deepscope system is its compatibility with any manikin. Traditionally, ultrasound simulators require specific manikins or modifications, limiting their flexibility and increasing costs. Deepscope has developed a system that can be used with any existing manikin, saving institutions money and allowing them to utilize their current equipment. This makes the system highly versatile and adaptable to different training settings and curriculums.


The Deepscope Mixed Reality Simulator not only provides an immersive simulation experience but also offers a comprehensive ultrasound curriculum. The curriculum covers a wide range of ultrasound procedures, including cardiac, abdominal, obstetric, and vascular scans. Each module includes expert video tutorials, anatomical illustrations, step-by-step guided scans, and assessment quizzes. Students can learn at their own pace and receive personalized feedback, enhancing their learning experience.


Another key benefit of the Deepscope system is its affordability. Traditional ultrasound simulators can be expensive, limiting the number of simulators available to students. The Deepscope Mixed Reality Simulator offers a cost-effective solution, opening up the possibility of having a simulator for each student. This individualized approach significantly improves the learning outcomes for students, allowing them to practice at their own pace and build their ultrasound skills more effectively.


The Deepscope system is not only valuable for medical schools and universities but also for continuing medical education (CME) courses and training programs. It allows healthcare professionals to refresh their ultrasound skills or learn new procedures in a cost-effective and flexible way. The system is portable, easy to set up, and does not require dedicated training centers, making it accessible to a wide range of medical training providers.


In summary, the Deepscope Mixed Reality Simulator is a game-changer for ultrasound simulation in medical education. Its use of mixed reality technology combined with compatibility with any manikin makes it a highly versatile and cost-effective solution. The comprehensive curriculum and individualized learning approach enhance the learning experience for students, ultimately improving their ultrasound proficiency. The Deepscope system has the potential to revolutionize how ultrasound training is conducted, allowing more medical professionals to be trained in this crucial skill.
