Introduction. Radiology is the fastest growing discipline of medicine thanks to the implementation of new technologies and very rapid development of imaging diagnostic procedures in the last few decades. On the other hand, the development of imaging diagnostic procedures has put aside the traditional gaining of experience by working on real patients, and the need for other alternatives of learning interventional radiology procedures has emerged. A new method of virtual approach was added as an excellent alternative to the currently known methods of training on physical models and animals. Virtual reality represents a computer- generated reconstruction of anatomical environment with tactile interactions and it enables operators not only to learn on their own mistakes without compromising the patient's safety, but also to enhance their knowledge and experience. Discussion. It is true that studies published so far on the validity of endovascular simulators have shown certain improvement of operator's technical skills and reduction in time needed for the procedure, but on the other hand, it is still a question whether these skills are transferable to the real patients in the angio room. Conclusion. With further improvement of technology, shortcomings of virtual approach to interventional procedures learning will be less significant and this procedure is likely to become the only method of learning in the near future.
