Designed for residents and fellows in interventional cardiology, Mentice Coronary Essentials training software covers fundamental learning objectives including angiography skills and a basic understanding of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).

The software provides ultimate flexibility as proctors can manipulate scenarios in real-time, using an iPad app or trainees can work independently under built-in expert guidance. This makes the solution adaptable to specific curricula and training environments.

By using lesion scoring and navigation training exercises, trainees will be able to identify lesions, comprehend anatomical structuring and understand the choice and manipulation of devices for coronary intervention.


Key Benefits

  • Flexible platform for independent or supervised training of angiography and PCI skills
