We are currently working on modules that cover MRI, CT, and mammography as well as other healthcare simulations outside of the imaging spheres.
CT is no longer a modality seen as a subset of radiology
The significance of patient positioning and correct exposure settings is important and often there is no way to train learners in a CT environment at a tertiary setting. However, CT simulation is difficult and costly in a tertiary setting due to the capital costs and space requirements in addition to the radiation shielding requirements.
Our CT simulation engages students significantly more than straight classroom sessions as students can see the images produced, critique them, and make corrections if needed. The images and all the analytical data from their simulation is emailed to the student as soon as they have finished the session providing immediate feedback.
MRI scanning is growing in importance
Times and staffing pressures in hospitals mean that learning time is hard to come by for students or people returning to work. However, MRI simulation is difficult if not impossible in a tertiary setting due to the capital costs and space requirements in addition to the magnetic shielding requirements.
