Abstract

With the ongoing changes in graduate medical education, emphasis has been placed on simulation models to increase clinical exposure and optimize learning. In specific, high-fidelity simulation presents as a potential option for procedural-skill development in interventional radiology. With improved haptic, visual, and tactile dynamics, high-fidelity endovascular simulators have gained increasing support from trainees and certified interventionalists alike. The 2 most common high-fidelity endovascular simulators utilized today are the Procedicus VIST and ANGIO Mentor, which contain notable differences in technical features, case availability, and cost. From the perspective of a trainee, high-fidelity simulation allows for the ability to perform a greater volume of cases. Additionally, without the risk of potential harm to the patient, trainees can focus on repetition and improved performance in a stress-free environment. When errors are made, high-fidelity simulator metrics will generate instantaneous feedback and error notification, erasing ambiguity and thus facilitating learning. Furthermore, in an environment devoid of time and cost stressors, the supervising physician is afforded the opportunity to properly mentor and instruct the trainee throughout the case. For the experienced interventionalists, high-fidelity simulation allows for a decreased learning curve for new procedures or techniques, as well as the opportunity for procedure rehearsal for unusual or high-risk cases. Despite the limitations created by cost, high-fidelity endovascular simulation should continue to be increasingly utilized in the development of the interventional radiology curriculum.
