Prospective, randomised and blinded clinical trials in surgery and interventional cardiology demonstrate that proficiency based progression (PBP) training produces a superior intra-operative skill-set.1-5 The PBP approach to training relies on a robust, quantitative assessment of experienced operator performance to establish a benchmark.  Atypical expert performances can lower the benchmark level that trainees must demonstrate in simulation […]


GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Mentice welcomes the publication of a research paper in the jounal “Stroke” based on the use of its VIST® physics-based, high-fidelity simulator to train interventional neuroradiologists (INRs). The paper, Metric-Based Virtual Reality Simulation for Mechanical Thrombectomy—A Paradigm Shift in Training for Mechanical Thrombectomy in Acute Stroke, researched the use of high-end virtual reality simulation for […]
