1. A medical procedure training system for simulating ultrasound imaging and ultrasound-guided medical procedures, the system comprising:

  • a control device;

    a graphical interface connected to the control device providing a plurality of interface sections, wherein a first interface section displays a digital video and a second interface section displays a virtual anatomical model and a three-dimensional ultrasound probe model, wherein the digital video comprises images previously recorded by scanning a live subject and correlated to the virtual anatomical model; and

    a user input device connected the control device, the user input device comprising an inertial sensor, wherein the graphical interface displays dynamic images corresponding to signals provided by the user input device, the signals corresponding to a spatial orientation of the user input device in relation to an area of examination, wherein the system is configured to simulate ultrasound imaging and ultrasound-guided medical procedures through system feedback.
