Abstract

There is a shortage of radiologists trained in performance of Interventional radiology (IR) procedures. Visceral and vascular IR techniques almost universally commence with a needle puncture, usually to a specific target for biopsy, or to introduce wires and catheters for diagnosis or treatment. These skills are learnt in an apprenticeship in simple diagnostic procedures in patients, though there are drawbacks to this training method. In addition, certification depends partly on a record of the number of procedures performed, with no current method of objective IR skills assessment.

Despite the presence of an effective mentor, the apprenticeship method of training presents some risks to patients: these could be mitigated in a pre-patient training curriculum, which would use simulation to provide skills training.
