Mentice and RAD-AID Collaborate to Improve Access to Interventional Radiology in Resource-constrained Regions

April 22, 2019 — Mentice AB, provider of endovascular performance solutions, has signed an agreement with the nonprofit public service RAD-AID to donate high-fidelity simulators for interventional radiology (IR) procedure training in various resource-constrained regions of the world. Under the agreement, Mentice pledges to contribute simulator software, hardware and expertise to RAD-AID IR educational teams.

Launched in 2008, RAD-AID is a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to bringing radiology and imaging technologies and solutions to developing countries and medically underserved communities.

RAD-AID is active in over 30 countries worldwide, and encompasses over 10,000 volunteers from 100 countries, 73 university-based chapter organizations, and an annual conference on global health radiology. “RAD-AID programs are multidisciplinary and bring together innovative technology, infrastructure-planning, and educational initiatives. Such multidisciplinary cooperation is essential, and by working with Mentice, we can help bring effective IR programs to some of the world’s neediest patients,” said Daniel Mollura, M.D., founder and CEO of RAD-AID International.
