Abstract
ArchieMD, Inc. proposes to develop a 3-D Multimedia Battlefield Trauma Training Kit. During Phase II we will develop comprehensive modules for treatment of thoracic and abdominal injuries. We propose to integrate visual 3-D computer models, video recording of the actual treatments, and an interactive virtual patient to develop a comprehensive, effective training tool military surgical teams. The proposed system should be highly effective given the nature of the visual component This system will include state of the art medically correct and realistic interactive visualization of patients at multiple levels (whole patient, organ systems, individual organs, etc.) superimposed upon video and still images of actual procedures. The superimposed internal anatomy, visualized during the procedure reinforces the identification of critical external anatomical landmarks and illustrates the proper guidance of instruments within the body. Additionally, a virtual patient will allow additional instructor led training simulation. The resultant system will include the input. Throughout the development cycle we will provide early versions of the software to trainees and staff at the Army Trauma Training Center to obtain formative and qualitative feedback. Phase II will culminate with a evaluation of knowledge gain in trauma residents who use the system.
