Ultrasound training tool

The Teistler Imager EDU uses just a simple 3D game controller to simulate ultrasound imaging for training purposes. It has been designed to improve sonographic skills, focusing on understanding spatial relationships. With the game controller as a virtual ultrasound probe, different 3D objects can be examined by the trainee, from simple geometric objects to more complex anatomical models.


Ultrasound training at home using video game technology

Based on standard PC technology and off-the-shelf gaming hardware, the Teistler Imager EDU is an easily available and affordable simulation-based ultrasound training system that provides 3D and 2D visualization with real-time interactivity. For instance, it can be used at home by medical students or residents as complement to conventional ultrasound training.
