We present a laptop-based ultrasound training simulator and a novel method for creation of patient-specific training datasets. The simulator consists of a laptop computer, a peripheral probe interface device with an embedded three-degree-of-freedom orientation sensor, a virtual US probe, a virtual patient model, a simulated US brightness scan (B-scan).(More)
