Abstract:

We have developed and integrated all the key elements of a real-time interactive training visualization system, specifically for the task of training any designated personnel in successfully accomplishing a limited FAST examination. The interactive training visualization system consists of 1 an easily transportable, almost ubiquitous ultrasound virtual phantom, 2 a means of estimating transducer relative position and motion when used adjunctively with the ultrasound machine and conjunctively with the ubiquitous phantom, 3 a volumetric image database for each search quadrant and 4 a syllabus to direct the training.
