Full Resolution Simulation for Evaluation of Critical Care Imaging Interpretation

These papers, published online May 3 and May 10, 2020 (respectively), in Academic Radiology, analyze the results of delivering a Critical Care Radiology SIMulation to multiple radiology residencies across the country. Part 1 addresses nine (9) fixed effects which are analyzed in detail.  Part 2 addresses case difficulty and resident competence as random effects.

Part 1 was the recipient of the 2020 Joseph E. and Nancy O. Whitley Award from the Association of University Radiologists (AUR), awarded to the best educational research paper of the past academic year.

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
