iVCL (Virtual Cath Lab):

- is a c-arm simulator and anatomical viewer designed to teach all medical staff and students hand-to-eye co-ordination skills and anatomical positioning concepts in a radiation free environment.

- winner of an NHS Innovations award, 2009

- CPD accredited by the UK College of Radiographers as per following statement from the College:

“A virtual learning system to support the development of fluoroscopy skills. May support outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 14 of CPD Now.”

1 - Practical skills

2 - Knowledge base

3 - Work safely

4 - Legal/ethical frameworks

6 - Manage knowledge/information

7 - High-quality healthcare/education services

8 - Patient centred care and choice

14 - Support and guidance for learners

What is the problem?

- Medical procedures involving diagnostic x-rays are by far the most significant source of human-made radiation exposure to the general public.

- Staff training to perform these procedures can currently only train using real equipment and on real patients, exposing both themselves and the patient to unnecessary radiation.

The iVCL:

- transfers the learning curve associated with controlling fluoroscopic equipment to a virtual environment.

- is a fully interactive computer simulation of a medical c-arm, allowing users to train to use equipment that delivers ionising radiation in a completely safe yet realistic way.

- through the use of 3D anatomical models, helps staff who are already trained in fluoroscopy to fine tune their anatomical knowledge by e.g. experimenting with new radiographic projections in a completely safe and radiation free environment.

- delivers a safe, realistic and radiation free learning environment which is accessible to all, for free & anywhere.
