Modular TEE simulator provides lifelike training
Nick Markin, M.D., Director of Perioperative Imaging at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, invented a modular Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) Phantom. The TEE Phantom allows the user to acquire and manipulate 3D color flow Doppler images of multiple heart abnormalities while using a clinical echo machine.
TEE is a powerful technology for diagnosing heart disease and monitoring the heart condition during surgery. However, the procedure can be tricky and current educational simulators are expensive, limited, or do not use an actual clinical echo machine. This technology would provide crucial training for medical students and residents on the actual clinical machine prior to performing the procedure on a real patient.
