Developed by the Mass General Department of Radiology, RadIQ (Radiology Simulation & Training Platform) is an online education and training tool that simulates the clinical environment for residents by providing access to multimodality complete data sets (MR, CT) with PACS-like functionality. Residents identify pathology on X-ray, CT, MR or PET data sets, answer multiple-choice questions and receive immediate feedback on patient outcomes supported by didactic materials.
