Review of Simulation Training in Interventional Radiology

Published:December 05, 2017DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.acra.2017.10.009
      Simulation training has evolved and is now able to offer numerous training opportunities to supplement the practice of and overcome some of the shortcomings of the traditional Master-Apprentice model currently used in medical training. Simulation training provides new opportunities to practice skills used in clinical procedures, crisis management scenarios, and everyday clinical practice in a risk-free environment. Procedural and nonprocedural skills used in interventional radiology can be taught with the use of simulation devices and technologies. This review will inform the reader of which clinical skills can be trained with simulation, the types of commercially available simulators and their educational validity, and the assessment tools used to evaluate simulation training.
