Simulation-based training (SBT) has long been an important tool for students and trainees in multiple medical specialties given its usefulness in building cognitive and technical skills as well as improving team functional dynamics. Medical educators have recently recognized the need for SBT incorporation in the subspecialty service areas of radiology. Edited and contributed to by leaders of radiology simulation-based training at Louisiana State University School
of Medicine, this book is the first of its kind to thoroughly cover such training and education. Concise yet comprehensive, chapters are organized into three sections focusing on key aspects of SBT in radiology, providing a blueprint for radiology educators, program directors, and administrators in
designing and implementing an SBT program. The first section provides general considerations of using simulation in training; the second discusses educational principles and testing; and the third presents a summary review of the scientific literature and current work being done in SBT in radiology.
