In a groundbreaking stride towards advancing injection technique training under ultrasound guidance, scientists at the Center for Diagnostics and Telemedicine in Moscow have successfully developed an innovative adult head phantom. This cutting-edge device is poised to transform the landscape of aesthetic medicine, providing a simulated environment for practitioners to refine their skills in ultrasound-guided procedures.
Yuri Vasiliev, CEO of the Center for Diagnostics and Telemedicine, emphasized the significance of this development, stating, “Aesthetic medicine under ultrasound control is a growing trend that enhances patient safety during procedures. The head phantom enables practitioners to hone their skills in a simulated environment, offering visualizations of anatomical structures for precise needle placement before injection.”
Crafted with silicone skin and anatomically accurate features, the life-sized head model includes a skull, salivary gland, vascular structures, and skin with varying densities and fat layer thicknesses. This allows for repeated practice of injection techniques in critical areas such as nasolabial folds, lips, forehead, and the temporal region.
Vsevolod Lykhin, a sonographer at the Botkin City Clinical Hospital, highlighted the significance of the simulator for training effectiveness, certification, and accreditation. “The simulator is invaluable not only for dermatologists and ultrasonographers in broadening their study range but also in mimicking the main arterial trunks in the face’s high-risk areas. This feature is crucial for reducing the risks of intravascular injections.”
This groundbreaking development adds to the Center’s portfolio of medical simulations, including models of mammary and thyroid glands, a liver phantom, and a model simulating human vessels and nerves. With eight such devices already developed, the Center continues to play a pivotal role in supporting medical professionals across various clinical practices, including ultrasound examinations and biopsies.
Founded in 1996, the Center for Diagnostics and Telemedicine stands as a premier scientific and practical entity within Moscow’s social development complex. Its focus areas encompass the integration of artificial intelligence in medicine, advancements in radial diagnostics, and the educational and scientific development of medical professionals.
