Mayer, V. V.; Varaksina, E. I. – Physics Education, 2020
To study the absorption of ultrasound in plexiglas we propose to use gadgets that are available to each student: an ultrasound humidifier, a liquid crystal display of a pad, a polaroid analyzer, a digital camera, a multimeter with thermocouple, and a stopwatch. These devices allow us to visualize a region in plexiglas where ultrasound is absorbed…

Bell, Floyd E.; Neuffer, Francis H.; Haddad, T. Robert; Epps, James C.; Kozik, Michael E.; Warren, Brandon C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
More emphasis is now being placed on active learning in medical education. Ultrasound is an active learning tool that can be used to supplement didactic instruction. This study describes a self-guided activity for learning floor of mouth ultrasound. Thirty-three first year medical students learned floor of mouth scan technique and ultrasound…

Allen, Thomas; Chally, Alex; Moser, Bradley; Widenhorn, Ralf – Physics Teacher, 2019
The labs presented here build on a simple speed of sound activity and models medical ultrasound imaging by demonstrating how multiple reflections propagate in a closed system. A short sound pulse is emitted into a pipe that is closed at one end and contains one or more partially reflecting surfaces within the pipe. The variety of reflections and…

Johnson, Christopher D.; Montgomery, Laura E. A.; Quinn, Joe G.; Roe, Sean M.; Stewart, Michael T.; Tansey, Etain A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
This laboratory session provides hands-on experience for students to visualize the beating human heart with ultrasound imaging. Simple views are obtained from which students can directly measure important cardiac dimensions in systole and diastole. This allows students to derive, from first principles, important measures of cardiac function, such…

Bliven, Kellie C. Huxel; Anderson, Barton E.; Makin, Inder Raj S. – Athletic Training Education Journal, 2018
Context: The use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is increasingly becoming a standard of care for sports medicine and orthopedic physicians. As such, there will be increased demand for athletic trainers to have knowledge and skills in diagnostic ultrasound. Objective: To provide key considerations for integration of diagnostic ultrasound into…

Weiskittel, Taylor M.; Lachman, Nirusha; Bhagra, Anjali; Andersen, Kylie; St. Jeor, Jeff; Pawlina, Wojciech – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
The clinical use of ultrasound has dramatically increased, necessitating early ultrasound education and the development of new tools in ultrasound training and assessment. The goal of this study was to devise a novel low-resource examination that tested the anatomical knowledge and technical skill of early undergraduate medical students in a gross…

Kabakoff, Heather; Harel, Daphna; Tiede, Mark; Whalen, D. H.; McAllister, Tara – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: Generalizations can be made about the order in which speech sounds are added to a child's phonemic inventory and the ways that child speech deviates from adult targets in a given language. Developmental and disordered speech patterns are presumed to reflect differences in both phonological knowledge and skilled motor control, but the…

Lien, Wan-Ching; Lin, Phone; Chen, Hong-Wun; Chang, Herman Chih-Heng; Lee, Chia-Peng – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2020
Recently, ultrasound has been increasingly used in emergency departments (EDs) due to its promising noninvasive and portable characteristics. Traditional ultrasound training is a complex process that requires knowledge gain, development of psychomotor skills, and visual perception. However, it usually takes a long time for a novice sonographer to…

Stenmark, Theodore; Allen, Thomas; Widenhorn, Ralf – Physics Teacher, 2020
We present a novel activity to demonstrate the Doppler shift of a sound wave, incident at an angle, upon a moving reflector. This activity is intended for use in an introductory physics laboratory focused on preparing students for the health and medical fields. The activity is designed to simulate Doppler velocity measurements from ultrasound…

Cleland, Joanne; Scobbie, James M.; Roxburgh, Zoe; Heyde, Cornelia; Wrench, Alan – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: This study evaluated ultrasound visual biofeedback treatment for teaching new articulations to children with a wide variety of speech sound disorders. It was hypothesized that motor-based intervention incorporating ultrasound would lead to rapid acquisition of a range of target lingual gestures with generalization to untreated words.…

Allen, Jodi E.; Clunie, Gemma M.; Slinger, Claire; Haines, Jemma; Mossey-Gaston, Corinne; Zaga, Chariss J.; Scott, Becky; Wallace, Sarah; Govender, Roganie – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2021
Background: Ultrasound (US) is not widely used as part of the speech and language therapy (SLT) clinical toolkit. The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified interest in US as an alternative to SLT instrumental tools such as the videofluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS), fibreoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) and endoscopic evaluation of…

Sugden, Eleanor; Lloyd, Susan; Lam, Jenny; Cleland, Joanne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: As cost and access barriers to ultrasound technology have decreased, interest in using ultrasound visual biofeedback (U-VBF) as a tool for remediating speech sound disorders (SSD) has increased. A growing body of research has investigated U-VBF in intervention for developmental SSD; however, diversity in study design, participant…

Jalil, Rabiya; Warren, Robert; Ma, Irene W. Y. – Cogent Education, 2019
Background: Point of care ultrasound (POCUS) is increasingly used in primary care. This study seeks to determine the educational needs of primary care physicians. Methods: All primary care practitioners in Calgary, Alberta, on the electronic departmental newsletter distribution list were invited to participate in an online survey. Interests in…

Huxel Bliven, Kellie C.; Anderson, Barton E.; Richter, Saskia D.; Makin, Inder Raj S. – Athletic Training Education Journal, 2018
Context: The use of point-of-care diagnostic ultrasound is increasing in health care, specifically among sports medicine clinicians as an adjunct to the physical exam. Given the role of athletic trainers in interdisciplinary sports medicine teams, athletic training educational programs should consider integrating this noninvasive imaging modality…

Lotter, Christine; Carnes, Nathan; Marshall, Jeff C.; Hoppmann, Richard; Kiernan, Daniel A.; Barth, Steven G.; Smith, Christina – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
This research investigated 20 middle and high school teachers' use of project-based learning curriculum after engaging in a 115-hour professional development program that was developed collaboratively with medical school and education faculty. The project-based learning (PBL) unit centered on the case of Marcus Brown (a pseudonym), a high school…
