This paper reports on a low cost system for training ultrasound imaging techniques. The need for such training is particularly acute in developing countries where typically ultrasound scanners remain idle due to the lack of experienced sonographers. The system described below is aimed at a PC platform but uses interface components from the Nintendo Wii games console. The training software is being designed to support a variety of patient case studies, and also supports remote tutoring over the internet.
