This article describes two pilot simulations utilizing a Virtual Laboratory and Imaging system designed to increase the realism of full-scale mass casualty incident (MCI) simulations by dynamically managing the speed and load of virtual departments while collecting data on usage and load. Such data may be used to identify potential bottlenecks in MCI response plans.
