The impact of 3D virtual reality radiography practice on student performance in clinical practice
Simulation-based learning using immersive VR has been found to positively impact the performance of first-year radiography students in the clinical setting. A retrospective analysis compared the performance of a control group to a VR group that received seven hours of practice.
Experienced clinical tutors assessed the students' performance in various criteria using a 5-point Likert scale. The results showed that VR-trained students outperformed the control group in 20 out of 22 assessment criteria. Specifically, they excelled in patient positioning for X-rays, selecting exposure factors, image appraisal of patient positioning and image quality, as well as comprehension of clinical indications and equipment setup. The findings highlight the value of VR as an educational tool for novice radiography students, providing them with essential knowledge and skills for clinical practice.

One of the most exciting initiatives in my time here has been Virtual Medical Coaching embedding the VR solution.
This is what you'd expect VR simulation to be like.
Great fun and amazingly realistic – an invaluable learning tool for students!
An exciting learning experience that captured all the important aspects of taking x-rays.
