Orzone in collaboration with CIRSE, the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe, will provide the opportunity for education and training in a real life hybrid OR training environment – the Orcamp at CIRSE 2010 Valencia, 2–6 October. Orzone will provide a completely new opportunity for education and training for Interventional Radiology in a new comprehensive training environment at CIRSE 2010. In dedicated training sessions CIRSE delegates will have the possibility to train on specific topics in life-like situations, led by proctors from the CIRSE faculty. There will be a total of 8 Orcamp training sessions at CIRSE 2010 and each session will last approximately 60 minutes. Pre-registration for the Orcamp sessions are available at www.cirse.org.
Orcamp is a state-of-the-art technical framework for training and assessment of human interaction processes, i.e. cognitive and multidisciplinary team training. Its equipment is specifically directed towards endovascular procedures with an operating table, simulated x-ray equipment and fluoroscopy and control screens. Orcamp can also be used without the x-ray equipment for general surgery or intensive care scenarios. The actual training equipment in the Orcamp include a c-arm, control panel, operating table, monitors and of course a patient. The patient cases for this occasion are UAE (Uterine Fibroid Embolization) procedures on an integrated virtual reality simulator VIST®-C from Mentice.
