Radiology: A Move Towards Hybrid Learning

There is a growing trend toward hybrid learning, and it is no different in the study of radiology.

Hybrid learning, also known as, blending learning, technology-mediated instruction, web-enhanced instruction or mix-mode instruction, is a method of learning that combines traditional face-to-face educational methods and electronical learning. Blended learning allows students to learn at their own pace and in their preferred learning method. It has been reported that hybrid learning improves student engagement, motivate and satisfaction when it comes to learning.

Traditional medical imaging education often fall short of the mark compared to other medical fields, and was often reduced to modules within general medical courses, rather than being singled out as a field of its own. This created a greater need for formal imaging education. However, with the development of radiology artificial intelligence (AI), new technological breakthroughs, and high-quality online learning options, there is no better time to create the perfect hybrid course, than now.

When DetectedX was established, it was our vision to create a medical imaging educational service for radiologists and radiographers, that was superior to existing platforms. We wanted to provide medical imaging clinicians and students up-to-date contemporary cases, that gave them access to high quality radiology images, that they could use to monitor, test, and improve their skillset.There was a time where formal medical imaging education fell short of the mark compared to other medical fields, and was often reduced to modules within general medical courses, rather than being singled out as a field of its own.

DetectedX’s advanced learning programme provides personalised, and on-demand lectures that cover anatomy and pathophysiology, physics, AI, and radiographic techniques and principles. Our self-assessment modules include real cases hand-picked by global leaders in radiology and medical imaging education. Cases include both malignant and normal cases, and all cases are validated and confirmed by pathology. When modules are completed, users will receive instant expert feedback.

The DetectedX learning centre allows lecturers to review student results and performance. This will offer the lecturer the opportunity to identify opportunities for further learning, and more refined course content.

DetectedX’s award winning online learning approach is used by 85% of relevant clinicians in Australia, and is mandatory in New Zealand. Our methods have been published in over 100 scientific journals.

If you think that a hybrid learning solution is what you need as a practicing clinician, university student, or lecturer, we would be happy to discuss your learning goals with you in more detail.
