Students in radiographic science education programs must master both the didactic education and psychomotor skills necessary to perform radiographic examinations on patients in a clinical setting. Simulation is the most common method of helping radiographic science students prepare to perform such examinations. Simulation can be performed either in live or virtual environments. Recently there has been a trend to adopt virtual simulation in medical education because of the reduced adverse effects virtual simulation provides as opposed to live simulation and real-world practice. Though there is a paucity of literature available discussing virtual simulation's use in radiographic science education, recent studies in this field and related medical imaging modalities have shown the benefits of using virtual simulation. The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the current use of virtual simulation in radiographic science education and characteristics to consider when implementing a simulation program.
