System for Standardizing Ultrasonography Training Using Tomographic Volumes

Currently practical (as opposed to didactic) training is performed by trainees practicing on live patients and then learning disease processes from mentors. The training is serendipitous by necessity. This technology would potentially shorten, standardize, and broaden the training for technicians as well as radiologists and surgeons.
