Abstract

PURPOSE: To assess different methods of recording angiographic simulations and to determine how such recordings might be used for training and research. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two commercially available high-fidelity angiography simulations, the Mentice Vascular Interventional Simulation Trainer and the Simbionix AngioMentor, were used for data collection. Video and audio records of simulated procedures were created by different methods, including software-based screen capture, video splitters and converters, and external cameras. Recording parameters were varied, and the recordings were transferred to computer workstations for postprocessing and presentation. RESULTS: The information displayed on the simulators' computer screens could be captured by each method. Although screen-capture software provided the highest resolution, workflow considerations favored a hardware-based solution that duplicated the video signal and recorded the data stream(s) at lower resolutions. Additional video and audio recording devices were used to monitor the angiographer's actions during the simulated procedures. The multiple audio and video files were synchronized and composited with personal computers equipped with commercially available video editing software. Depending on the needs of the intended audience, the resulting files could be distributed and displayed at full or reduced resolutions. CONCLUSIONS: The capture, editing, presentation, and distribution of synchronized multichannel audio and video recordings holds great promise for angiography training and simulation research. To achieve this potential, technical challenges will need to be met, and content will need to be tailored to suit the needs of trainees and researchers.
