Lung Ultrasound is considered an alternative to chest radiography or CT scanning in COVID-19 patients. It is safe, easy and quick for use at point-of-care, repeatable, low cost and radiation-free. Therefore, training physicians to rapidly acquire lung ultrasound skills can be critical for the success of COVID-19 management.

3D Systems is working around the clock to develop COVID-19 education and training content on the U/S Mentor simulator. If you are a physician with relevant experience, we encourage you to join our development efforts.

The new COVID-19 Module will be released on March 30, 2020 and will be provided free of charge to Simbionix U/S Mentor customers.
