Renal Module for SonoMan System

Part #: SNMR-20


The Renal Module enables students to learn the basics of identifying hydronephrosis or bladder distention.


With two versions of each image - student and mentor - the user has access to a labeled version of each image. In addition to the mentor version, which provides a standard explanation, the "Instructor" mode allows the instructor to include additional annotations.

There are three windows and the image library includes images and video of two normal patients and five abnormal patients.

The windows include several targets to provide a complete view of each exam window. This diagnostic ultrasound training system allows the user to learn about:

  • Landmarks on the body used for identification of window locations for the exam
  • Reading and understanding the various normal and abnormal views
