Novel Homemade Trans-Rectal Ultrasound Biopsy Training Phantom

Novel Homemade Trans-Rectal Ultrasound Biopsy Training Phantom Ultrasound phantoms are very helpful in allowing the trainee to develop the necessary manual coordination skills before attempting any procedure on patients and compromising their safety. The construction of agar-based trans-rectal ultrasound prostatic biopsy phantom, using inexpensive and simple materials, is described. Features include tissue-equivalent reflectivity, the ability to implant targets for biopsy taking and reasonable shelf life of several weeks. Our phantom is an effective mean of training and skill acquisition for a one of the frequently performed invasive urological procedure. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Urology Karger

Abstract

Ultrasound phantoms are very helpful in allowing the trainee to develop the necessary manual coordination skills before attempting any procedure on patients and compromising their safety. The construction of agar-based trans-rectal ultrasound prostatic biopsy phantom, using inexpensive and simple materials, is described. Features include tissue-equivalent reflectivity, the ability to implant targets for biopsy taking and reasonable shelf life of several weeks. Our phantom is an effective mean of training and skill acquisition for a one of the frequently performed invasive urological procedure.
