Paper Abstract

Introduction: Medical imaging technology has revolutionized health care over the past 30 years. This is especially true for ultrasound, a modality that an increasing amount of medical personal is starting to use. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate a platform for improving medical image interpretation skills regardless of time and space and without the need for expensive imaging equipment or a patient to scan. Methods, results and conclusions: A stable web application with the needed functionality for image interpretation training and evaluation has been implemented. The system has been extensively tested internally and used during an international course in ultrasound-guided neurosurgery. The web application was well received and got very good System Usability Scale (SUS) scores.
