Our endoscopic ultrasound training phantoms allow users to gain essential skills in how to:
- Guide the flexible endoscope through a tissue mimicking channel
- Insert a biopsy needle into a target under ultrasound guidance
- Identify simulated target structures
The phantoms include spherical target structures contained within a soft rubber-based tissue mimicking material. The number, placement and contrast of these spheres varies between the three models offered.
Our training phantoms are semi-disposable. During normal usage each needle puncture creates a track within the phantom. Ultimately, the number of tracks will interfere with the ability to obtain a clear image.
