This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the gallbladder. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three different scan scenarios, including normal and pathological cases, of the gallbladder and surrounding structures. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you feel confident.

If you are not a medical student or physician, you may prefer the other version of this module, which includes all the procedural information needed by professionals in other roles: /shop/imaging/sonography/abdominal/ultrasound-assessment-of-the-gallbladder/

You’ll learn

  • to practice, perfect, and test your skills in performing an ultrasound scan of the gallbladder, bile ducts, portal triad, and extrahepatic biliary system
  • to better visualize and understand the gallbladder and surrounding structures, with our 3D anatomy model
  • to identify the clinical symptoms of gallbladder disease
  • how to differentiate normal and abnormal sonographic appearances of the gallbladder
  • how to explain and demonstrate the use of breathing techniques to obtain optimal images of the gallbladder
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)
Introduction
Step 1 - Begin Scanning Procedure of the Gallbladder
Step 2 - Commence the biliary system scanning protocol
Step 2.1 - Patient position
Step 2.2 - Scan plane
Step 2.3 - Standard biliary protocol image requirements
Step 2.4 - Common Image Labeling
Step 2.5 - Sonographic features of a normal gallbladder
Step 2.5.1 - Sonographic features of a prominent gallbladder
Step 2.5.2 - Sonographic features of a contracted gallbladder
Step 2.6 - Sonographic features of gallbladder variants
Step 2.7 - Troubleshooting
Step 3 - Scan the gallbladder in the longitudinal and transverse planes
Step 3.1 - Scan the body and fundus of the gallbladder in the longitudinal plane
Step 3.2 - Scan the body and neck of the gallbladder in the transverse plane
Step 4 - Measure the gallbladder wall in the transverse plane
Step 5 - Assess the bile ducts and measure the common hepatic duct (CHD) and common bile duct (CBD)

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
