This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the liver. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three different scan scenarios, including normal and pathological cases, and shows you how to perform an ultrasound of the liver. 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-of-the-liver/

You’ll learn

  • how to prepare and position a patient for an ultrasound of the liver
  • to practice, perfect, and test your skills in performing an ultrasound scan of the liver
  • to better visualize and understand the liver and surrounding structures, with our 3D anatomy model
  • to identify the clinical symptoms of liver disease
  • how to differentiate normal and abnormal sonographic appearances of the liver
  • how to explain and demonstrate the use of breathing techniques to obtain optimal images of the liver
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)

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
