Classroom Education

For uninterrupted learning in a hands-on classroom environment, sign up for a Vital U classroom course at our headquarters in Minneapolis. Each course module reinforces Vital U’s standardized learning methodology with review of image acquisition, protocol assignment, case analysis and image distribution.

On-Site Classroom Education

On-site facility education teaches the fundamentals of Vital Images’ advanced visualization software. This can be tailored by sub-specialty or modality. Each student will utilize their own workstation in a classroom setting with hands-on training.


Resources are available online, exactly when and where you need them. Access to our eLearning, educational courses, videos, workflows, user guides, and other release-related documentation are available to customers.

Live Webinars

Our live webinars offer lecture-style instruction on the use of clinical applications. New modules are offered every week. A Vital U instructor will lead you through product changes and enhancements after new releases.
