Virtual Cath Lab

My Favourite App is the Virtual Cath Lab (iVCL)!


The iVCL is an x ray machine simulator which helps healthcare professionals learn the basics of using equipment that delivers ionising radiation in a safe environment, without exposing either themselves or patients to unnecessary radiation.


The iVCL is CPD accredited by the College or Radiographers, won an NHS Innovations award in 2009 and is FREE!


Its one of the only apps in the medical section to create an immersive 3D simulated environment. Any ideas as to how best to use this 3D technology for other areas of healthcare (e.g. simulating 'more common' medical equipment, perhaps a syringe driver) would be very much appreciated!


You can find the iVCL free version here:


Thanks for your time,
