Abstract

Abstract Real-time ultrasound (US) was evaluated as a tool for medical students to learn human anatomy by examining each other. Second-year students participated. US was regarded as a useful tool for anatomy studies by 95.7% of the students. Thus, real-time US seems to be a helpful tool for learning about human anatomy. This may give increased knowledge both in anatomy and ultrasonography, skills the students may benefit from in their professional life.
