CARES Act helps COTC update

Central Ohio Technical College ’ s diagnostic medical sonography technology program constantly strives to provide students the opportunity to learn on the most up-to-date equipment . DMS program director Melinda Brillhart utilized recent Coronavirus Aid , Relief and Economic Security Act funding to purchase two SCANT- RAINER simulators from United Kingdom-based company Intelligent Ultrasound .
The simulator offers a comprehensive and structured educational pathway from learning basic principles of ultrasound to scanning and diagnosing anomalies and pathology across multiple clinical disciplines including emergency medicine , general medicine , obstetrics and gynecology .
“ In addition to learning how to recognize and perform sonographic examinations on patients , our students gain handson experience scanning a variety of ultrasounds with and without disease in the lab prior to their first clinical experience , thanks to the SCANTRAINER simulators we have purchased ,” Brillhart said .
It also features a cloud system that offers users a ground-breaking range of new features and educational tools that will optimize the teaching scope and learning potential including over 900 patient case studies from users across the globe in a variety of clinical settings .
“ The simulator uses actual case studies where real COVID patients were imaged and their pathologies were programmed into the haptic simulator body , making it feel like you are scanning a real patient ,” Brillhart said .
The ability to utilize these new simulators to study patient cases of what has come to be known as COVID lung is a great example of how COTC ’ s DMS program used CARES Act funding to ensure future healthcare workers will be able to identify patients experiencing the after effects of the current pandemiccausing virus .
Brillhart said , “ Our students are entering the clinical environment with up-to-date , current scanning skills — even the latest medical conditions like COVID pathologies that the entire world is still working to understand .”
In recent years the program utilized OB / GYN
SCANTRAINER systems , but the necessity of the new simulators has become apparent as the program has expanded its skills training offerings .
COTC offers an Associate of Applied Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography Technology with three majors : general ( abdominal , obstetrical and gynecological ), cardiovascular ( echocardiography and vascular ) and special modalities ( crosstrain in multiple sonography specialties ).
The DMS program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of the Joint Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography . Learn more at go . cotc . edu / dms .
