This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the male reproductive system.  The interactive simulator provides three scenarios that cover different types of scans. 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 studying for the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) registry exams.

You’ll learn

  • to practice, perfect and test your skills in performing an ultrasound scan of the scrotum, including transabdominal and endorectal sonographic scanning
  • how to prepare and position your patient for an ultrasound scan of the scrotum
  • to better visualize and understand the anatomy and physiology of the scrotum, testes and prostate, with our 3D model and illustrations
  • how to identify on images the common abnormalities and pathologies of the scrotum
  • to describe the technique for prostate biopsy and radiation seed implantation
  • much more (see “Content Details” for more specific information).

  • Explain the Patient Privacy Rule (HIPAA) and Patient Safety Act (see reference).

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
  • 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
