dc.description.abstractThe use of Computer-based simulation (CBS), a form of simulation which utilises digital and web based platforms, is widely acknowledged in healthcare education. This literature review explores the current evidence relating to CBS activities in supporting radiographer education in CT and MRI. Key findings: Journal articles published between 2010 and 2020 were reviewed (n ¼ 663). The content was evaluated and summarised with the following headings; current utility, overview of CBS types, knowledge acquisition and evaluation, and student perspective. CBS utility in CT and MRI radiography education is limited. Its current use is for pre-registration education, and the interfaces used vary in design but are predominantly used as a preclinical learning tool to support the training of geometric scan planning, image acquisition and reconstruction, and associated technical skills. CBS was positively acknowledged by student radiographers; based on its inherent flexibility, self-paced learning and the ability to practice in a safe environment. Nonetheless, the educational validation of CBS in CT and MRI education pertaining to knowledge and skill acquisition has not been fully assessed through rigorous academic assessments and metrics. Conclusion: The current use of CBS in CT and MRI education is limited. The development of software programmes with functionality and capability that correlates with current clinical practice is imperative; and to enable more research in CBS utility to be undertaken to establish the efficacy of this pedagogical approach. Implications for practice: Due to limited placement opportunities, the use of simulation is increasing and evolving; in line with the approach to design and deliver high quality Simulation Based Education (SBE) in Diagnostic Radiography education. The continued development, utility and evaluation of CBS interfaces to support student radiographers at pre and post registration level is therefore essential.
