150+ Real patient cases. And more and more.

Our Scanbooster case library is expanded regularly and features over 150 individual real patient cases from different medical specialties. Choose from internal medicine ultrasound, point of care ultrasound (POCUS), gynecological ultrasound, prenatal and obstetrical ultrasound, urological ultrasound and angiological ultrasound.

Smartphone, Tablet, Mac? Available for all of them!

Scanbooster Ultrasound Simulator can be used on tablets, smartphones and a Macs individually. If two devices are available (i.e. smartphone and tablet/Mac/additional smartphone), the smartphone can be used as a virtual ultrasound probe, simulating all different kinds of motions.

Scanbooster uses real patient data to simulate the sonographic examination. Ultrasound has never been more immersive on a mobile device.

How to scan?

How would you start a real Ultrasound examination? By putting the probe on the patient and starting to move it. Well - with Scanbooster there's no difference - except that there's no patient below your smartphone. Scanning feels almost the same as we capture every movement precisely and render the sonographic image accordingly.

Advanced technology - for advanced realism

  • realScan tracks your environment and therefore allows sweeping, sliding and compression movements (back/forth, left/right and up/down) by just -well- moving your device through the air. It feels as if you'd hold a real ultrasound probe in your hand.
  • airScan gives you a feeling as if your patient was laying just below your smartphone: By using haptic feedback and sophisticated technical engineering the image you see on the screen is very similar to a real ultrasound examination. Slightly move your smartphone downwards and you'll apply more 'pressure' therefore the image quality improves. Move your smartphone upwards and the 'pressure' decreases - you will only see a partial image - until the applied 'pressure' becomes so little that no image can be seen anymore.
  • With haptic feedback moving through the air now feels like moving a real probe on the skin of a patient. You can even feel when you lose contact or gain it again!

All movements are fully supported!

With the additional Scanbooster Control app your smartphone becomes your own virtual Ultrasound probe. By using sophisticated engineering and the latest technology it will make your transition from practicing with Scanbooster to performing a real ultrasound examination seamless.

The handling with Scanbooster Control is just the same - forward/backward, left/right, turning, tilting and twisting are all supported.














Get to know the great features of Scanbooster's free scanning mode

Realistic Ultrasound Simulator


All sonographic structures are sorted by arteries, veins and other structures. Pathological structures are displayed separately. This helps you keeping the overview and makes learning sonography with Scanbooster a breeze. Of course labelling can be turned off and on at any time.


Every color is selected carefully by our sonographic experts to guarantee maximum clarity.


Scanbooster uses the top important Structures to display. Therefore we achieve a maximum level of clarity while concentrating on the most important contents to learn

Pathological cases

With Scanbooster Ultrasound Simulator you can scan and experience every case in our ever expanding library - both physiological and pathological cases. That's why pathological structures are displayed separately. This guarantees to find your way around immediately.

Real time

Scanbooster's innovative color labelling is displayed in real time with no latency. Just scan through the volume as you'd do normally while seeing every structure at the same time - colored.


Of course you can set the transparency of the colored structures - or turn them off completely. You'll also be able to use the image controls just like with a real device: Brightness, Contrast, Zoom and Depth!


Got lost? No need to worry, Scanbooster has got you covered. Just turn on the pictogram to see where you're scanning at right now - of course it's live!



Scan even the rarest pathologies all by yourself - or learn sonographic anatomy with our physiological organ-volumes

Fanning, Rocking, Rotating, Sliding, Sweeping, Compression of tissue, Loss of contact, Quality improvement scanning techniques.


Scan anything

With Scanbooster you can choose from our ever expanding library of both physiological and pathological cases. Many come with our innovative Scanbooster labelling. In comparison to reading a book - you have the ability to experience a rare pathology almost as if the patient was right besides you. Scan it all by yourself and practice it. Of course rare is rare but one time you might encounter a patient with this exact pathology - and Scanbooster will prepare you for it.

Scan anywhere

As Scanbooster Ultrasound Simulator runs on your smartphone, tablet and MacBook - you can use it virtually anywhere and practice the art of performing Sonographic examinations.

As many patients as you want

Scanbooster gives you full flexibility when it comes to choosing patients. We develop an ever growing library of both physiological and pathological cases for you to explore

Help - when you need it

Scanbooster comes with many helper you can turn on at any time. Such as our innovative labelling system or the pictogram that shows your current position when scanning. This allows for you to learn sonography on your own.

Scan anytime

It can be hard to get access to a ultrasound machine, a willing patient and an instructor at the same time as a medical student and even as a resident. Not with Scanbooster - just take out your smartphone, tablet oder Mac.


Scanbooster's goal is to make sonographic education accessible to anyone. That's why we offer a reduced pricing for universities. Compared to conventional Ultrasound Simulators which can easily cost around $100,000.00 - we offer a very reasonable pricing.


We have developed Scanbooster to achieve maximum realism. Just check out our one of a kind Scanbooster Control App. Scanning with just your smartphone or tablet has never felt so real.

Meet the medical students

I really love the portability that comes with an ultrasound simulator that fits onto an iPad or iPhone. You can take it anywhere you want and share your progress with friends.

Medical student

Scanbooster helps me learn ultrasonography by showing me what structure I am scanning right now. It's as easy as that. By using the Scanbooster labelling I can tell what I am displaying right now.

Medical student

Using an iPhone as controller for Scanbooster on iPad is just genius. You can practice your scanning skills without even having to buy new hardware. I just installed Scanbooster Control on my iPhone and connected. So easy!

Medical student

Today I tried the Scanbooster Ultrasound Simulator app the first time. I really recommend it because you can learn sonography at your own pace and without annoying the patient.
