ABSTRACT
Ultrasound (US) is a medical imaging modality which is extremely difficult to learn as it is user-dependent, has low image quality and requires much knowledge about US physics and human anatomy. For training US we propose an Augmented Reality (AR) ultrasound simulator where the US slice is simulated from a CT volume. The location of the US slice inside the body is visualized using contextual in-situ techniques. We also propose advanced methods how to use an AR simulator for training.
