Obstetric sonography has become an indispensable tool during pregnancy. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination during the second and third trimesters. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that cover different aspects of the second and third trimester scan protocol. 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/obstetrics/ultrasound-assessment-during-the-second-and-third-trimesters/

You’ll learn

  • to practice, perfect, and test your skills in performing an ultrasound scan during the second and third trimesters
  • to better visualize and understand the normal feto-placental anatomy during the second and third trimesters, with our 3D model and illustrations
  • methods for calculating gestational age during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy
  • how to use ultrasound to assess fetal lie, life, number, presentation, and situs
  • how to scan the maternal uterus and adnexae, amniotic fluid, and placental location
  • how to assess fetal biometry and scan fetal anatomy relevant to gestational age
  • the advantages of 3D/4D imaging compared with those of conventional 2D imaging
  • 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
