ACR Offers Training on 12 Different Imaging Systems

July 2, 2008 - The American College of Radiology (ACR) Education Center now offers comprehensive, interactive radiology education on workstations from 11 different vendors allowing each participant to receive instruction on the system that they are accustomed to and directly apply the training received in radiology’s “classroom of the future” to their clinical practice.

Participants will receive hands-on knowledge and expertise through a mentored self-study format that can allow for one-on-one interaction with instructors and equipment vendors, provides frequent feedback and is performed at individual workstations that replicate the attendees clinical practice environment.

Attendees can receive training on a number of different imaging systems including: Barco/Voxar, Confirma, DynaCAD/Invivo, Eizo, GE Healthcare, MIMvista, Philips, Siemens, TeraRecon, Viatronix, Visage Imaging and Vital Images Inc.

The ACR Education Center houses multimedia facilities for interaction between doctors and the educational material. When new techniques to treat a disease are introduced, the center provides a national training resource to educate radiology specialists from community hospitals to academic medical centers, so that the early learning curve is accomplished through new educational methods, including simulation, rather than on patients.

The ACR Education Center offers curricula with courses covering CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy), coronary cardiac CT imaging (including supervised case review), PET/CT, and advanced breast imaging and biopsy techniques. More programs, including interventional radiology techniques, body MR and breast ultrasound will continue to be added to meet anticipated and emerging needs of the radiology community.
