Abstract
Medical ultrasound image acquisition is a process that depends heavily on the skills of the operator. Simulation- based medical education has proven effective as a means to improve professional's performance and reduce patient's stress. In this paper, we implement and compare two modern ultrasound simulation models aimed for training. Both methods are able to produce images at a speed suitable for real-time application, and are based in CT images as a source for the simulation.
