Neurovascular Procedural Adoption - the Importance of Simulation

Increasing the efficiency and proficiency of trainees in their procedural diagnostic programs, away from real patients.

April 29, 2022

Increasing the efficiency and proficiency of trainees in their procedural diagnostic programs, away from real patients.

The Technical University of Munich's (TUM) Interventional Neuroradiology (INR) department discusses with Philips Healthcare about using Mentice Virtual Patient simulation to reduce the learning curve for learners adopting neurovascular procedures.

Applying theoretical knowledge to real-life procedures without hands-on real patient exposure is problematic. A growing number of healthcare systems and societies globally are adopting virtual and flow model simulation to improve the efficiency of their traditional educational methods. Klinikum Rechts der Isar in Munich (TUM) is one of many hospitals that has recognized the educational benefits of simulation. The INR team uses simulation as an essential teaching method to optimize the fellows' learning by delivering high-quality training and providing a safe, immersive, and realistic learning environment.

The Philips Azurion (incl. Allura) and Mentice VIST ® Virtual Patient integration converts the angio suite into a safe and radiation-free skills acquisition platform that enables the trainees at TUM to become familiar with the real equipment and the clinical environment. The integration allows fellows to train on specific learning objectives, advanced procedures, prepare for the unexpected, and rehearse patient-specific cases.
