The Effectiveness of Computer-Based Hypermedia Teaching Modules for Radiology Residents
American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting,
This paper explains the rationale for utilizing computer-based, hypermedia tutorials for radiology education and presents the results of a field test of this educational technique. It discusses the development of the hypermedia tutorials at Montreal General Hospital (Quebec, Canada) in 1991-92 and their use in the radiology residency program. The tutorials cover: (1) cystic tumors of the pancreas; (2) ectopic pregnancy; (3) physics of x-ray filters; (4) tumors of the posterior fossa in children; (5) anatomy of the temporal bone; (6) diagnosis of arthritis; (7) arterial stenosis and occlusion viewed through ultrasound; and (8) echogenic liver modules. A field test of 6 of the 8 tutorials was conducted over an 8-month period with 24 residents (12 male, 12 female). Twelve residents used the tutorial program while another twelve received traditional lectures on the subject material. Posttest results indicated no significant differences between the two instructional conditions. (Contains 18 references.) (MDM)
