December 26, 2014– Elsevier unveiled enhancements to two Amirsys solutions, STATdx and RADPrimer, at the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting in Chicago.
The new STATdx 6, a diagnostic decision support solution for radiology professionals, has a flexible platform to continuously bring radiologists current content for confident diagnostic decisions. The platform upgrades will allow STATdx to serve new media types in the future, such as image stacks and annotated video content. Radiologists using the new STATdx 6 can now search across 200,000 images for reference and decision collaboration with physicians.
RADPrimer, a comprehensive radiology curriculum tool, now enables faculty to assign reading materials and tests across the entire curriculum and has a new Pre-Call Readiness exam, making it a virtual teaching assistant. In addition, RADPrimer’s assessment engine now gives residents the ability to take practice quizzes across multiple disciplines and difficulty levels. All 7,000 questions have been updated and categorized as Case-Based or Mulitple Choice.
Paula Woodward, Ph.D., who leads the Elsevier RADPrimer author team, will receive this year’s RSNA Outstanding Educator award. In honor of her accomplishment and contributions to RADPrimer, Elsevier will host the RADPrimer Resident Competition in the Elsevier booth, #1114. Winners of the competition will be awarded the Elsevier Future Thought Leader award at an exclusive event for the best-known radiologists around the world. Woodward will moderate the competition, and Anne Osborn, Ph.D.m the first-ever recipient of the RSNA Outstanding Educator award, will present the awards to the winning team.
