  • Current medical imaging professional training uses an apprenticeship model with students following an established doctor and viewing their cases, in what is called a practicum. This posses an issue as students are limited to the cases available during their practicum. To resolve this automated instruction can aid in their education promoting both increased depth and breadth. To accom- plish this we have created a new Intelligent Tutoring System, Shufti. Shufti makes use of modern gamification and Intelligent Tutoring System designs to augment the learning experience of mammography students. In Shufti we have introduced a new reinforcement learning based technique for use in Intelligent Tutoring System feedback selection in ill-defined domains, and have made use of modern gamification techniques to increase learner engagement.
