Skills and Features


  • Blue Phantom Thyroid Biopsy Ultrasound Training Block Model is excellent for training clinicians in the psychomotor skills associated with ultrasound guided fine needle biopsies of the thyroid gland and allows users to develop and practice the skills necessary to gain proficiency in using ultrasound for imaging and guiding thyroid fine needle biopsy procedures
  • Ultrasound imaging skills include using ultrasound system controls, transducer positioning and movement, recognition of thyroid and surrounding structural anatomy, identification of a variety of masses present in the thyroid gland, using ultrasound system calculation packages, and using ultrasound to target the lesions for fine needle biopsies
  • This ultrasound phantom model is excellent for specialties including thyroid surgery, surgical training programs, endocrinology training programs, radiology training programs, ultrasound training programs, simulation centres, surgical skills centres, medical education facilities, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations


  • Model contains the thyroid, focal lesions suitable for fine needle biopsy, and pertinent surrounding anatomical structures
  • Structural anatomy includes: the left and right lobes of the thyroid gland as well as the isthmus, a multinodular goitre, multiple masses of varying sonographic appearances, trachea, oesophagus, carotid arteries, and internal jugular veins
  • Multiple simple and complex masses with a variety of sonographic appearances are present in the model including; hypoechoic, echogenic, echolucent with an echogenic rim, and echogenic with a echolucent rim
  • This ultrasound training model is constructed using Blue Phantom's patented SimulexUS™ ultra-durable tissue and produces extremely realistic ultrasound images. The materials used matches the acoustic characteristics of actual human tissue so the user experiences the same quality expected from imaging patients in the clinical environment. Uncompromising quality allows clinicians to utilize the model repeatedly without the costs of replacing disposable parts
  • The masses in this soft tissue biopsy model can be accessed with needles as well as fluid can be injected into the model to verify needle tip location.
  • Fluids are automatically expelled so that the model can be used repeatedly for training.
  • It is recommended that size 18 - 21 gauge sharp, unbent needles are utilized in order to maximize the self healing and ultra-durable performance of the model
  • Core biopsies can be performed and tissue from the tumours in the model can be removed however each mass can only withstand core biopsy until the lesion is destroyed. Training will then need to move on to another mass located in the model
  • This thyroid ultrasound trainer will perform well using any ultrasound imaging system configured with the appropriate transducer (recommended ultrasound transducer; high frequency linear array ultrasound probe 7.5 - 15 MHz)
  • Fluid can be injected into the model to verify needle tip location (automatically expelled)
  • Convex surface contour offers a scanning environment similar to human body habitus
  • Product dimensions:
    • L 20cm W13cm H 15cm
    • Weight: 2.3 Kg
