Ultrasounds are now available on diSplay Learning. The first application, U/S COVID-19 diagnosis simulation training, is available for free to help resolve the current global health crisis.

No custom hardware is required to use this module.

Simulation is a powerful tool allowing quick and massive training of healthcare professionals on the front line. Thanks to our technologies and expertise in medical simulation, and helped by our local partners, we are happy to propose this training module for COVID-19 diagnosis using lung ultrasound. It has been specifically designed to train medical professionals during this crisis to fight against this disease.

We are convinced that simulation can help to get more people trained around the world to fight against COVID-19. This module, developed in a record time, will be constantly improved and patient cases will be added regularly.

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, abdominal 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).

This module has been developed to help train medical professionals to diagnose and monitor COVID-19 through lung ultrasound. We are using real patient data 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!

Example of a patient-case

Learn how to diagnose COVID-19 with

patient-specific cases

Choose among the available patient-cases and perform an ultrasound on the lungs of a patient, built from scanner images.

Search, visualise and measure, the pulmonary damages caused by COVID-19 and diagnose your patient.
