MedaPhor announces launch of new ScanExaminer simulator


MedaPhor Group plc (AIM:MED) ('MedaPhor') announces today the launch of ScanExaminer, a new ultrasound skills examination simulator for hospitals and examination bodies to exam a medical professional's ultrasound skills. 


The system's unique combination of real feel probe manipulation in all scanning planes and ultrasound sweeps based on real patient scans, that have been compiled using MedaPhor's unique simulation of real patient scans, enables hospitals and external examination bodies to truly test a physician's ultrasound image interpretation and probe manipulation skills.


Unlike medical training simulators, ScanExaminer removes all training aids and functions (curriculum based learning modules, cut-away anatomy, probe guidance, recorded expert playback, didactic learning resources and real-time metric based assessment) to offer examiners a library of pathologies and normal patient scans, combined with a realistic, virtual reality based scanning experience, with which to comprehensively test a clinician's ultrasound examination skills.

About MedaPhor (


MedaPhor (AIM: MED) is a global provider of advanced ultrasound skills training simulators for medical professionals. Founded in 2004, the Company is headquartered in Cardiff, UK and San Diego, USA, with customers in over 16 countries across the world.

Following its recent acquisition of Inventive Medical, the company now has two of the world's leading ultrasound training simulators:


ScanTrainer Professional, MedaPhor's market-leading ultrasound skills training simulator, offers a realistic ultrasound scanning learning experience that combines 'real-feel' haptic technology with real full anatomy patient scans, real-time one-to-one expert guidance and curriculum based teaching. The system offers trainees a flexible self-learning experience without the need for patients and with minimal requirement for expert supervision - making ScanTrainer Professional both resource efficient and highly cost effective. 


ScanTrainer Professional's subscription-based Cloud 2 service offers ScanTrainer users access to the unique Case Generation Engine, which enables clinicians to upload and publish their own patient scans and share these with other Cloud 2 subscribers within their organisation or around the world. In addition, ScanTrainer's Cloud Case Library offers users flexible cloud-access to a growing library of nearly 300 normal and abnormal cases created using real patient scans.


HeartWorks, developed by leading cardiac anesthesiologists at University College London Hospitals, the HeartWorks simulators and online training materials are recognised as one of the most true-to-life and comprehensive educational tools for Transthoracic and Transoesophageal echocardiography.


Medical practitioners can learn, through interactive online content, the complete anatomy of the heart, view it from all angles and recognise patient cases with pathological conditions. They can then practise acquiring ultrasound images though correct probe positioning on a simulator, interpret those images to determine correct diagnosis and treatment, and finally be tested to ensure that all required competencies have been achieved to the highest standard.
