In advance of the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH 2020), CAE Healthcare has released CAE Vimedix 3.0, its updated ultrasound simulator with a new user interface that includes 3-D/4-D cardiac ultrasound for advanced assessment and diagnosis in preparation for ultrasound-guided interventions.

“The demand for safe, effective ultrasound education and training continues to grow with the rapid development of new portable devices and ultrasound-guided procedures, said Rekha Ranganathan, President of CAE Healthcare. “Our CAE Vimedix 3.0 system will help learners quickly master anatomy and critical assessment of patients while providing instructors more flexibility and tools.”

In addition to an improved user experience, CAE Vimedix Ob/Gyn allows learners to practice scanning an 8,12, or 20-week fetus, diagnose more than 40 fetal patient pathologies and perform standard fetal exam measurements. Users can change the sex and orientation of the fetus and learn to assess the mother’s health during pregnancy.

CAE Vimedix Cardiac offers 11 new augmented reality cases for Microsoft HoloLens 2, which allows learners to separate, elevate and walk around organs and structures as they gain a better understanding of anatomy. For practicing clinicians, accessing 3-D/4-D views of the heart has become much more standard as alternatives to open heart surgery are more commonly performed. Most of these procedures require a detailed view of the internal heart structures as replacement valves or tiny devices are being placed.
