Designed as a useful aid for radiology students and educators, this fascinating trainer allows for enhanced hands-on training of radiographic pathology identification using a tool that will encourage students to utilize their critical thinking skills. Students will be excited to image a body part that will challenge their ability to create optimal images of a bone that demonstrates pathology common to the upper extremity. This life-like upper extremity is uniquely designed to permit the user access to the fracture site in which various fracture types can be easily interchanged. Student can quickly visualize the difference between a spiral fracture and a splinter fracture within minutes of taking the radiographic exposures. The simulator is designed to allow students the capability of rotating the arm easily to place the humerus in routine and special projections common to imaging with protocols.
With the Life/form Imaging Fracture Simulator, students effectively practice positioning skills, technical skills, and vital critical thinking skills as they produce radiographic images that will make learning anatomy, pathology, and image production exciting and educational. Exposure techniques for the simulator are in line with techniques typical to an adult humerus. Students will be able to visualize, create, and reduce bone (anterior/posterior) displacement. Imaging concepts will become easy to understand as students can see how changing the position and/or projection of the X-ray beam alters the perspective of the anatomy visualized.
Included with the simulator are two interchangeable fracture types (spiral and splinter). 5 Year warranty. Made in the USA.
