• Spaced radiology: encouraging durable memory using spaced testing in pediatric radiology

      Morin, C.E.; Hostetter, J.M.; Jeudy, J. (Springer Verlag, 2019)
      Applied memory research in the field of cognitive and educational psychology has generated a large body of data to support the use of spacing and testing to promote long-term or durable memory. Despite the consensus of this scientific community, most learners, including radiology residents, do not utilize these tools for learning new information. We present a discussion of these parallel and synergistic learning techniques and their incorporation into a software platform, called Spaced Radiology, which we created for teaching radiology residents. Specifically, this software uses these evidence-based strategies to teach pediatric radiology through a flashcard deck system. Copyright 2019, The Author(s).
