World’s first infant hip sonography phantom
Best tool to teach Graf’s method
This phantom expands training opportunities for paediatricians, radiologists and orthopaedists.
Before working on real infants, trainees can repetitively practice on this phantom to become familiar with the examination procedures and key points.
Using real ultrasound devices, trainees can learn key ultrasound landmarks to identify standard plane for Graf’s classification.
This is a foundation to acquire skills in handling and positioning of the baby as well as correct positioning of the transducer.
