About Us

RadIQ is a web-based education and training tool developed by the MGH Imaging Trials Center in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital. The goal of RadIQ is to provide an online platform tailored towards interactive assessment of advanced imaging datasets using hands-on case review methods. The first module - Cardiac CTA – was adapted from in-person training courses conducted at MGH. The Cardiac CTA module enables radiologists and cardiologists to complete cases remotely at dates/times convenient to them, eliminating the burden of in-person training while providing the same intensive experience. Additional training modules are in the works.

The primary aim of RadIQ is to provide a convenient and unique Continuing Medical Education experience without sacrificing quality. All RadIQ content is carefully selected and developed by expert faculty. The courses also provide readers with customized feedback in real time

RadIQ is not owned or controlled by any commercial interest and courses are presented without advertising of any kind. All participant information collected during course registration is kept confidential. Aggregate and anonymized data resulting from course participation may be presented or used in publications.
