Our June Publication of the Month features a two-part publication, Full Resolution Simulation for Evaluation of Critical Care Imaging Interpretation, authored by the Wisdom in Diagnostic Imaging (WIDI) team, which was recently published in Academic Radiology.
- Part 1: Fixed Effects Identify Influences of Exam, Specialty, Fatigue, and Training on Resident Performance
- Part 2: Random Effects Reveal the Interplay Between Case Difficulty, Resident Competence, and the Training Environment
These papers analyze the results of delivering a Critical Care Radiology SIMulation to multiple radiology residencies across the country. Part 1 addresses nine fixed effects that are analyzed in detail. Part 2 addresses case difficulty and resident competence as random effects. Part 1 was awarded the 2020 Whitley Award from the Association of University Radiologists (AUR) for the best educational paper of the past academic year.
