This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, and includes normal and pathological findings. The interactive simulator provides three different scenarios to test your ability to perform this type of scan. Online simulations enable students and practitioners to build or refresh knowledge and cognitive skills, and offer a safe practice environment so you can prepare for the real clinical world. You can also use simulations to try out procedures that you might not otherwise experience. This module is ideal if you are learning to perform ultrasound studies of the thyroid and parathyroid to aid in diagnosis.

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

  • to practice, perfect and test your skills in performing an ultrasound scan of the thyroid and parathyroid glands
  • how to prepare and position your patient for an ultrasound scan of the thyroid
  • how to identify on images pathologies of the thyroid and parathyroid gland, and other neck masses
  • much more (see “Content Details” for more specific information).
Introduction
Step 1 - Begin scanning procedure of the thyroid and parathyroid
Step 2 - Commence the thyroid and parathyroid scanning protocol
Step 2.1 - Patient position
Step 2.2 - Scan plane
Step 2.3 - Standard thyroid and parathyroid protocol image requirements
Step 2.4 - Common image labeling
Step 2.5 - Troubleshooting
Step 3 - Scan and measure the thyroid in the transverse and longitudinal planes
Step 3.1 - Scan and measure the thyroid in the transverse plane
Step 3.2 - Scan and measure the thyroid in the longitudinal plane
Step 4 - Scan and measure the parathyroid glands in the transverse and longitudinal planes
Step 5 - Scan the neck region in the longitudinal and transverse planes
  • Define and use related medical terminology.
  • Describe and demonstrate techniques for imaging the thyroid gland.
  • Describe, and recognize on images, pathologies of the thyroid gland.
  • Identify the anatomy of the parathyroid glands on diagrams and sonograms.
  • Describe and demonstrate techniques for imaging the parathyroid glands.
  • Describe, and recognize on images, pathologies of the parathyroid glands.
  • List and describe other neck masses.
  • Follow relevant protocols when scanning.

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
