A study of medical students has shown that using elfh’s Image Interpretation improves their ability to interpret chest x-rays by 50%.

In addition, 90% of the students reported an improvement in their confidence interpreting chest x-rays compared to 38% who used an e-textbook. 100% of those using the elfh material found it engaging, compared to 15% allocated to an e-textbook. The study was undertaken by Dr Elikem Tamaklo, Foundation doctor on Merseyside, and excited a lot of interest when he presented it at ASME in July 2012.

The study is available to download here.
