As diagnostic imaging  continues to evolve at a rapid pace, sub-specialty training must keep up — or stay ahead of the curve. But is the sub-specialty training doing enough to prepare specialists for the future of radiology?

The answer, according to Harprit Bedi, MD, a neuroradiologist and associate professor and of radiology at the Boston University School of Medicine, rests with radiology’s willingness to adopt the technology that is already revolutionizing health care education.

“So much of radiology training is about memorizing for exams, but with technology, there’s less of a need to remember – you can just Google it,” said Dr. Bedi, who has published and lectured on incorporating technology in training programs. “How does that focus on recall help radiologists take better care of patients? I’m not sure that it does.”

According to Dr. Bedi, who is presenting sessions on technology-driven education at RSNA 2019, achieving excellence in radiology training requires two core skills. First, specialists must be able to perceive the abnormality and interpret what they see. But this is only the first step.

“Specialists would need critical thinking, or the confidence to analyze and synthesize everything they know and be able to communicate this as an evidence-based management plan,” he said. “This is the key to providing excellence in patient care, and this is what our teaching should work toward.”

Luckily, technology, and in particular, virtual reality (VR), is moving radiology education in that direction.

VR technique allows putting a learner in a situation they are not very much familiar with and test how they apply their knowledge to everyday situations.

Innovations like this represent the future of radiology education.

Meaningful learning we are achieving using VR is an essential building block of critical thinking and high-end diagnostic skills.

As we see with virtual reality and other immersive devices, the technology is out there, we just need to master it to help us achieve excellence.

It is possible right now.
