About ImageSim

MISSION STATEMENT

To provide a state-of-the art, evidence-based online education system that promotes effective and efficient skill development in the diagnosis of medical images.

GOALS

Blending clinical, academic and philanthropic values, ImageSim aims to:

  1. Increase health care professionals’ accuracy in the interpretation of visually diagnosed tests with the goal of improved health outcomes.
  2. Improve course content and conduct research that advances the learning of image interpretation.
  3. Support global access to this education system for health care professional learners, with subsidized access to the developing world.
THE EDUCATION EXPERIENCE

ImageSim simulates the presentation of medical images just like you would get them in clinical practice. It also emphasizes deliberate practice such that the learning system provides hundreds of case examples and as you practice interpreting images you get immediate feedback after each case. While acquiring mastery for these images would take years to acquire via clinical practice alone, this learning system can potentially help achieve this in just a few hours.

DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Currently, the ImageSim learning platform is available for paediatric musculoskeletal and chest radiographs. We are actively developing this system to include point-of-care-ultrasound, electrocardiograms, and photographs. These will be made available through our strategic partnerships with leading medical institutions.

ImageSim has been uniquely designed for people with busy schedules – access the system 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.
