The Radiation Safety Trainer is a high-fidelity simulator platform providing hands-on radiation safety and endovascular training. The system is highly portable and consists of a haptic device, a dedicated control box and an external screen.

 

A large variety of peripheral and coronary angiography as well as coronary intervention cases provide training on catheter and wire manipulation skills as well as basic intervention skills.
