Collaboration boosts breast imaging training

A collaboration between the National Breast Imaging Academy (NBIA) and the Report and Image Quality Control (RAIQC) online platform, developed by Oxford University Hospitals, has produced a new range of teaching case sets, to support training in breast imaging.

The case sets will be a valuable resource for radiology trainees, particularly those sitting the FRCR 2B, as well as breast clinicians and advanced practitioner/consultant radiographers.

The training sets are available on the RAIQC website https://www.raiqc.com and are freely accessible to all clinical professionals and practice educators.

Dr Megan Bydder, consultant breast radiologist and NBIA lead for e-learning, said: “The new teaching sets on the RAIQC platform will enable breast imaging professionals to develop their medical image reporting skills. They are part of a suite of resources we’ve developed to encourage e-learning, and will prove particularly useful while face to face training opportunities are limited by the coronavirus restrictions.”
