procedures and for those who wish to apply for training in interventional

radiology.

Aim: To teach and reinforce the basics of the tools used and skills needed in

interventional radiology

We utilize a state of the art Mentice simulator (VIST-LAB with VIST G5) and

different physical models. In addition, there is  an industry supported

Symbionics EVAR simulator.   

Objectives:

• To provide insight into a standard IR case by observing a live procedure

via video link

• Know the steps involved in performing endovascular procedures using a simulator

• Know how to perform US guided procedures using phantoms

• Know the tools and kit used in IR and image guided procedures

• Know how to tailor your CV to get into interventional radiology

 

Advanced Endovascular Workshop

Course overview: This brings together experts in aortic and peripheral vascular

interventions. The course aims to teach and reinforce the principles of planning and performing aortic and peripheral vascular interventions. It is aimed at IR and vascular surgical trainees who have a basic understanding of vascular interventions and who wish to develop their skills in planning and performing standard EVAR and complex peripheral vascular interventions. The course combines lectures with extensive opportunity for hands on practise with simulators. We utilize a state of the art Mentice simulator (VIST-LAB with VIST G5) and different physical models. In addition, there will be an industry supported Symbionics EVAR simulator.

Aim: To teach and reinforce the principles of planning and performing aortic and peripheral vascular interventions

Objectives:

• To provide insight into a complex peripheral vascular case by observing a live procedure via video link

• Know and demonstrate the steps involved in performing endovascular

procedures using a simulator (angioplasty, stenting and EVAR) & how to deal with complications

• Know how to interpret CT angiograms and its use in EVAR case planning

• Know the tools and kit used in endovascular procedures

• Learn 'tips and tricks' on how to deal with difficult cases

 

Paediatric Intussusception Reduction Simulator Training for Radiology Trainees

This course is done as part of training for the radiology trainees before they start on call. The simulator is made of a doll, a laptop containing software, insufflation device and a manometer. The course aims to provide them with a basic knowledge of intussusception reduction. we do a lot of scenario based learning and do role play to enhance the importance of consenting alongside learning the procedure. The course is run once a year for the trainees at the radiology academy. We aim to make this course available to all deanery trainees for educational benefits.

 

Intelligent Ultrasound Scan Trainer

The simulator provides education, training and practice not only for trainees, but also for Emergency Medicine/A&E doctors to practice skills, without effect on patient morbidity or mortality.  The simulator has been in place at the Academy since January 2016 and has been used by a variety of staff including Radiology trainees, Sonographers, Obstetrics and Gynaecological trainees and midwives.  The plan is to incorporate assessment on the simulator with clinical placement assessment for Radiology trainees.  This method has been successfully incorporated into many Sonographer courses.
