    Der Sono-Simulator: sicheres Ultraschall-Training

    Barbara Kraus, Leiterin des Akademischen Hochschullehrgangs Sonography an der FH Campus Wien, zeigt in ihrem Video sichere Ultraschalluntersuchungen ohne direkten Körperkontakt. Möglich wird das durch den Sonographie-Simulator. Künftige Studierende der Radiologietechnologie können damit an virtuellen und realen Patient*innenfällen trainieren.

    "Das Coolste ist, dass Fachärzte unterrichten, die Vortagenden aus unterschiedlichen Bereichen kommen und, dass man sehr viel davon lernen kann.", so Anke De Bock, Studierende des Akademischen Lehrganges Sonography an der FH Campus Wien. Sie pendelt zwischen Österreich und Belgien und unterrichtet selbst an einer belgischen Fachhochschule. Ihr wichtigster Ratschlag: „Wenn man etwas wirklich machen möchte, dann kann man dafür auch reisen oder eine Sprache lernen."

      Lernergebnisse

      • Students can recognize and identify normal sonographic appearances and normal variants of organs and structures

      • Students are able to independently create, document and analyze ultrasound images with relevant pathologies according to national and international guidelines, considering all artifacts and interactions of ultrasound with human tissue and relating necessary parameter changes and interpretations of the effects

      • Students can correctly interpret other common tests, normal measurements and laboratory values associated with each organ region and their relation to the sonographic examination

      • Students are able to perform the initial interpretation using checklists as first step of systematic analysis for reporting in the interprofessional/intraprofessional/multiprofessional ultrasound team

      • Students are familiar with and are able to use technical developments and new areas of application in ultrasound in relation to specific indications

      • The students use independently, actively and indication-related all available ultrasound techniques during the examination

      • Students can name and use materials for the examination in a manner appropriate to the subject, indication and patient

      • Students can carry out all phases of the sonographic diagnostic process in the clinical field of thyroid gland and neck sonography in a patient-centred and evidence-based manner in practice in accordance with currently recognised international and national standards. They analyse, interpret and evaluate the steps of the sonographic process and reflect on their diagnostic practice.

      Prüfungsmethode

      : The module examination in the modules concerning organ areas consists of 80 completed sonographic examinations (case studies) from the respective organ areas, including the respective vidated checklists per sonographic examination. Depending on availability, 30 or a combination of both can be carried out on subjects or at the simulator. The vidification is carried out by the lecturer/tutor. All defined learning outcomes of the respective modules are thus incorporated into this form of examination.
