Ultrasound artificial intelligence (AI) software and simulation developer Intelligent Ultrasound Group has introduced a new version of its NeedleTrainer ultrasound-guided needle simulation tool.

NeedleTrainer 2 is available for use with GE Healthcare's Vscan Air handheld wireless ultrasound system. The initial NeedleTrainer could only be utilized with an existing console-based ultrasound scanner, according to the vendor.

Intelligent Ultrasound sells NeedleTrainer as a needle training simulator applicable to any specialty that performs ultrasound-guided needling. The company also offers a second configuration -- NeedleTrainer Plus -- that incorporates additional training for regional anesthesia procedures. NeedleTrainer Plus features a built-in trainer for peripheral nerve blocks that includes optional AI-based overlay of body structures for the 10 most common blocks, the company said.
