InSimo is proud to present the first Online Ultrasound Simulator.
Lung Ultrasound for COVID-19 diagnosis module, is available for free to help resolve the current global health crisis.
Visualise and diagnose different degree of damages depending on the patient
According to recent evidences based on experience in Italy and China, lung ultrasound represents a useful diagnosis tool in the identification and monitoring of respiratory symptoms in COVID-19, especially in emergency context.
Compared to other methods used to detect and monitor COVID-19 (stethoscope, lung radiography, CT-scan), ultrasound presents several crucial advantages. It is a sensitive and quick exam that is easily repeatable and therefore allow an efficient monitoring of the patient over time. It is also radiation-free, lower cost, and doesn’t require a complicated logistics (no transfer of patients to CT-Scan, easy to clean).
We are convinced that simulation can help to get more people trained around the world to fight against COVID-19. This simulator, developed in a record time, is available for free. It will be constantly improved and patient cases will be added regularly.

This module has been developed to help train medical professionals to diagnose and monitor COVID-19 through lung ultrasound. Real patient data are used to be the most accurate possible, and cover all the complications that may be observed in COVID-19.
If you have patient data that you would like to integrate in the module and share with the whole medical community, please contact us!
