What you'll learn

Doppler ultrasound has become one of the essential diagnostic aids in the field of medicine due to increased abnormalities and defects in the organs. It uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the body on to the monitor. It is also called sonography. Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality and is the most common cancer among women.

Breast cancer incidence has increased from 30 % in the 1970s to 40% in the 1990s in most countries. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the breast. 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 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 study for the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) registry exams.
