This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the pancreas. A pancreatic ultrasound is commonly performed to evaluate for complications in the pancreas, such as pancreatic disease and pancreatitis. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios, including normal and pathological cases, and tests your ability to perform an ultrasound of the pancreas. Practice the steps of the procedure 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-pancreas/

You'll Learn

  • to practice, perfect and test your skills in performing an ultrasound scan of the pancreas
  • to better visualize and understand the pancreas, and surrounding structures, with our 3D anatomical model
  • how to differentiate normal and abnormal sonographic appearances of the pancreas
  • how to explain and demonstrate the use of breathing techniques to obtain optimal images of the pancreas
  • much more (see “Content” for more specific information)
Introduction
Step 1 - Begin scanning procedure of the pancreas
Step 2 - Commence the pancreas system scanning protocol
Step 2.1 - Patient position
Step 2.2 - Scan Plane
Step 2.3 - Standard pancreas protocol image requirements
Step 2.4 - Common image labeling
Step 2.5 - Sonographic features of a normal pancreas
Step 2.6 - Trouble shooting
Step 3 - Scan the pancreas in the transverse and longitudinal planes
Step 3.1 - Scan the head, neck, body, and tail of the pancreas in the transverse plane
Step 3.2 - Scan the head, neck, body, and tail of the pancreas in the longitudinal plane
Step 3.3 - Pathology of the parenchyma of the pancreas
Step 4 - Assess and measure the pancreatic duct
Step 4.1 - Measure the pancreatic duct in its long axis

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
