January 8, 2016 — Clinicians can now more easily keep pace with new technology and deliver improved patient care with advancements to Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s educational offerings. The new tools and enhancements modernize the education process, provide better preparation for real-world clinical situations and offer access to new resources and accreditation opportunities.

Wisdom in Diagnostic Imaging (WIDI) is an all-new teaching and consultative tool that mirrors how radiologists work with realistic clinical scenarios and scans in an online portal. Through a series of videos and interactive trainings, WIDI helps clinicians improve clinical observations and conclusions to form high-quality radiology reports. During difficult exams, WIDI can also help provide real-time guidance for better outcomes. Developed in conjunction with University of Florida’s College of Medicine, the virtual program provides a more cognitive and higher level of learning than currently available with textbooks or case libraries.

“We developed this innovative digital education tool to combine the strengths of modern technology with the best evidence-based educational theory to give a learning experience that is unique, flexible and asynchronous,” said Anthony Mancuso, M.D., chairman, Department of Radiology at the University of Florida’s College of Medicine. “WIDI is designed to work with UF’s interactive radiology classroom teaching aid, RadTree, and our simulation testing developed in conjunction with the American College of Radiology, WIDI Sim, to establish competency in real-life scenarios. In addition, by using the consulting feature of WIDI, the diagnostic radiologist can focus on a particular case and understand how to quickly generate a high-quality report.”

Toshiba is also broadening access to accredited courses through its exclusive partnership with Medlantis. All courses will now be CE accredited in addition to the currently available CME accreditation, broadening the educational opportunities for clinicians.

The company showcased its enhancements to clinician education at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 29 – Dec. 4.
