AnSo is a collection of ultrasound images chosen and slightly augmented to clearly demonstrate anaesthesia sonoanatomy. Colour overlays can be placed on and off the images by the user making it easy to visualise individual anatomical structures.
The images are not intended to represent your average patient but rather to be a clear demonstration of the anatomical structures to enable understanding of the sonoanatomy.
Ergonomic pictures demonstrate positioning of patient, probe and screen. Landmark sketches highlight common patterns to look for, and can be useful for residents having to draw sonoanatomy for exams. Short loops are included for mobile structures.
AnSo is designed to be frequently updated as new roles for perioperative ultrasound are developed, and new understandings of sonoanatomy appear in the literature. Once downloaded the app does not require an internet connection to run. All the content is stored on your phone. Feedback and suggestions are welcome.
