ScanTrainer installed at Central Middlesex Hospital


MedaPhor Group plc (AIM: MED), the intelligent ultrasound software and simulation company, announces that ScanTrainer, the OBGYN and General Medical simulator training platform, has been installed at a new Ultrasound Training Academy at Central Middlesex Hospital, London, UK.


The London North West Healthcare NHS Trust (LNWH) has chosen ScanTrainer for its new state-of-the-art ultrasound education facility based at Central Middlesex Hospital. The Academy has been designed to ease growing ultrasound training pressures and clinical demands across the Trust and beyond.


Following an assessment of the ultrasound simulation market, the Trust purchased a ScanTrainer Transvaginal Simulator (TVS) and a ScanTrainer Transabdominal Simulator (TAS) to support the Trust in making training more accessible for those learning and improving their ultrasound skills.


Tanuja Khiroya, Clinical Lead Radiology & Medical Physics, at Central Middlesex Hospital, who pioneered and led the project, commented: "Historically ultrasound trainees would have completed the bulk of their learning in the clinic or by using text books. ScanTrainer represents a step-change by enabling clinicians to learn independently in a patient-safe environment before practising on patients. This ensures that trainees are not only acquiring skills faster but are well equipped and confident when it comes to scanning real patients for the first time." 


Ian Whittaker, Chief Operating Officer, at MedaPhor, said: "We have seen the emergence of a number of ultrasound academies across the UK recently with Norwich, Leeds, Peninsula, Wales and, of course, Central Middlesex being some of the pioneers in this space. It's very encouraging to see ultrasound skills initiatives such as these taking strides to close the skills gap and MedaPhor is delighted to be able to equip them with simulation technologies that can help them achieve their goals."
