The University of Saarland in Germany has selected Sectra‘s Education Portal for its medical training programme.

The initiative is set to significantly enhance the educational experience for radiographer students.

The platform will offer access to real-life clinical cases, supporting both self-directed learning and remote studies, and alleviate the gap between academic learning and clinical practice.

Since 2016, the university hospital has been using Sectra’s radiology solution and is now expanding its capabilities to include the company’s advanced education technology.

This will benefit students studying to be medical-technical radiology assistants (MTRA), whose training is conducted at the university hospital’s school centre.

The Education Portal’s remote training features are particularly advantageous for MTRA students across the country, offering them comprehensive materials that are accessible from any location.

In addition, the platform comes with advanced visualisation tools and a multidisciplinary library comprising anatomical and clinical cases.

Such resources are designed to simulate real-life medical scenarios instrumental in the study of diagnosis, planning treatment, and monitoring various medical conditions.

The cloud-based nature of the portal allows users to access learning content on-demand from their personal devices, aiding in self-directed learning.

Its scalability ensures that it can serve multiple users across different faculties.

Sectra’s Education Portal operates on a subscription-based SaaS model, allowing for use at the university, at home, or within the hospital environment.

The portal is used globally in more than 60 countries and features a range of anonymised medical cases and images.

These resources have been collected through collaborations with Sectra’s customers and cover numerous medical specialities, such as anatomy, histopathology, radiology, and surgery.

The platform also supports the importation of custom material, enabling educators to create bespoke lessons tailored to their specific teaching requirements.

Sectra Medical Education business unit president Johan Carlegrim said: “It makes me so proud and happy to extend our collaboration with the University of Saarland and to be able to enhance education for their radiographer students.

“Together with them, we can ensure an enriched and valuable learning experience for the students regardless of location. Also, with our library of real cases, the students will be better prepared for the upcoming professional environments.”
