Hologic, Inc. Enhances Physician Training With Virtual Reality Simulation
Date:11/11/2013

MARLBOROUGH, Massachusetts and ZURICH, November 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

State-of-the-art surgical education was the goal of a collaboration between US-based Hologic, Inc. and the Swiss company VirtaMed. The result is a virtual reality simulator for innovative training of the MyoSure® procedure, an incision-less system for removal of intrauterine tissue. The simulation program is very successful: so far, more than 2,000 physicians have been trained, and the numbers are increasing rapidly. In January 2014, the simulator fleet will grow to 23 units.

In 2011, Hologic decided to work with the Swiss company VirtaMed to develop a virtual reality simulator for the newly launched MyoSure® procedure. "VirtaMed is the only company worldwide with extensive experience in virtual hysteroscopic simulation. It only made sense to partner with them for our ambitious project, to take MyoSure® education to the next level," explains Brittany Minichiello, Senior Associate Manager Medical Education at Hologic and lead of the simulation program.

The result of this collaboration has been a remarkable success: Since the inception of the program in 2012, it has been showcased at numerous society meetings including ACOG (national and district meetings), AAGL, and many others. "It is an innovative technology that offers hands-on training to physicians, OR staff, and residents alike. We have provided this training tool to countless residency programs including MGH, Tufts, Morehouse, University of Pennsylvania, WSU, University of Mississippi, Memorial Medical Center, Northwestern, and so on. I feel that the GyneSim virtual simulator is a valuable asset in surgical education," adds Brittany Minichiello.
