PAE is one of the most complicated procedures that any interventional radiologist will have done. The anatomy is variable, the use of catheters, microcatheters is very specific. If we can use simulators to...help with some of those complex stages, then it will speed up the training and speed up the competences.
Dr. Nigel Hacking, Interventional Radiologist
Simulation gives you the opportunity to gain experience from other people's cases... [and] to experience different anatomical variance that might be gained in over 100 cases 6-10.
Those using [simulation] can get to a level of expertise quicker and faster with the variety of scenarios that can be encountered.
