Abstract

Ultrasound is a ubiquitous, portable structural imaging technique which is used to provide visual feedback for a range of diagnostic and surgical techniques. Training for these techniques demands a range of teaching models tailored for each application. Existing anatomical models are often overly simple or prohibitively expensive, causing difficulties in obtaining patient or procedure specific models. In this study we present ultrasonic rib phantoms for clinical teaching and training purposes, fabricated by three-dimensional (3D) printing technologies. Models were produced using freely available software and data, and their effectiveness as teaching phantoms evaluated using clinical ultrasound scans of the phantoms.
