This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the pediatric abdomen, and to assess the common pediatric pathologies.

Ultrasound is valuable for evaluating abdominal pain in pediatric patients. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the pediatric abdomen, and to assess the common pediatric pathologies. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that test your ability to perform an ultrasound examination of the pediatric abdomen. 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:

You'll learn

  • the protocols for sonographic scanning of the pediatric abdomen and additional considerations when imaging patients in the neonatal intensive care unit
  • to practice, perfect and test your skills in performing an ultrasound scan of the pediatric abdomen
  • to better visualize and understand the anatomy and physiology of the pediatric abdomen, with our 3D model and illustrations
  • how to identify on images the common pediatric pathologies, including pathologies of the kidney and adrenal gland, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, appendicitis, and intussusception
  • much more (see “Content Details” for more specific information).

  • Identify and describe sonographic images of common pediatric pathologies, including hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, appendicitis, and intussusception.
  • Identify the anatomy of the neonatal kidney and adrenal gland on diagrams and sonograms.
  • Identify and describe sonographic images of pathologies of the kidney and adrenal gland.
  • Describe and demonstrate the protocols for sonographic scanning of the pediatric abdomen.

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
