What you'll learn

The importance and usage of ultrasound in medicine today are ubiquitous and used to study every aspect of the body. It uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the body on to the monitor. It is also called sonography. This is similar to sonar and radar which helps in detecting military planes and ships.

This is generally used in obstetrical practice and perinatal medicine because it offers important information regarding the morphological and physiological development of the fetus. In males, this can assess the bladder, prostate gland, and the surrounding area including blood vessels, kidneys, and the bowel. There are different types of ultrasound for males such as bladder ultrasound, renal ultrasound, testicular ultrasound, prostate ultrasound.

The conditions in which ultrasound is indicated in males are an enlarged prostate, urethral stricture, and bladder dysfunction. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the male reproductive system. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that test your ability to perform an ultrasound of the male reproductive system.
