With more restrictions on who can travel to meetings e-learning is available whenever and wherever you want from your desktop or mobile device. Webinars, videos, webcasts and slides from educational sessions at scientific meetings are all examples of e-learning resources.
The field of nuclear medicine is especially suited for e-learning. Even though fundamental and specialized knowledge is important, the skill of reading images is to a great extent based on experience from interpreting many cases. Therefore, many curricula for specialist training now specify how many cases the resident or trainee must interpret.
As part of its strategy to provide more education resources for its membership, the Society has established a partnership with eScan Academy (https://www.escan.com/bnms) to provide their novel e-learning and examination platforms to our members at a reduced rate.
eScan Academy provides interactive step-by-step training to learn how to read and interpret nuclear medicine images. A comprehensive database of educational cases covering all core disciplines of nuclear medicine will help all those involved in nuclear medicine training to enhance their diagnostic skills.
The website contains CME courses in all core disciplines of nuclear medicine. Within each core discipline, the courses explain how to read, manipulate, analyse and interpret all relevant nuclear medicine images using nothing but a standard internet browser. This includes planar images, gated cardiac images, MIP/raw images in cine mode, SPECT, SPECT/CT, and PET/CT. All patient cases are carefully selected and classified by a faculty of senior nuclear medicine professionals. Findings in the images are marked and described in teaching points, often with links to open access papers or guidelines.
Individual access is offered to members at the reduced rate of £119 inc. VAT exclusively for BNMS members, approximately 75% discount. If you are signed in as a guest you will need to upgrade to a BNMS Member to take advantage of this rate.
