Comprehensive Approach to Training Utilizing Modern Day VR for Portable Radiological Equipment
Price: $75

  • Presented by College of Biomedical Equipment Technology

By leveraging the power of technology, the Imaging Academy instructors will provide an interactive troubleshooting simulation experience designed to demonstrate how Virtual Reality increases learning retention and expands the limit of the classroom. Using a portable radiological system to conduct hands-on training as well as Virtual Reality Oculus devices, students will engage in both hands-on and virtual training led by two highly qualified instructors. Students will be familiarized with the major components of the system and engage in troubleshooting common faults. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a Certificate of Training on the AMX-4 Portable X-Ray, from the College of Biomedical Equipment Technology.

Successful Support of Diagnostic Ultrasound Technology
Price: $50

Instructor(s):

  • Matt Tomory, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing, Innovatus Imaging Corporation
  • Ted Lucidi, Director of Commercial Operations, Innovatus Imaging Corporation

This live and interactive session builds a strong foundation of the ultrasound modality. The session is divided into 3-modules and is a must for anyone currently supporting diagnostic ultrasound at any level, or those considering a transition to an in-house support model.

  • Ultrasound Basics and Applications: Knowledge and demonstration with actual system of ultrasound system modes, functions, and applications are a huge part of performing proper ultrasound system service however this information is omitted from OEM training sessions.
  • Probe Technology and QC Testing: Attendees will be introduced to the elements and requirements of accreditation by the industry’s leading accrediting boards and illustrates the proper techniques of assessing image testing using a tissue mimicking phantom by performing live actual required and recommended scans. Image artifacts and noise troubleshooting will also be discussed and demonstrated. This module will provide the soft skills to complement the hard technical skills possessed by ultrasound service personnel.
  • Effective In-house Support: Diagnostic ultrasound has one of the lowest risks of entry of any imaging modality when transitioning to in-house support. Whether just considering or in the midst of supporting this modality, there are several must-haves for a successful preventive maintenance program. Even if systems are under some level of service contract, implementing the methods outlined in this session will result in increased up-time and improved customer satisfaction

Introduction to Servicing Cardiovascular & Interventional Radiology Systems
Price: $30

  • Presented by RSTI

This presentation is designed for imaging engineers who have experience servicing traditional digital radiography & fluoroscopy systems and are transitioning into servicing more advanced Cardiovascular & Interventional Radiology Systems. We will discuss the similarities and differences between modern IVR systems, compared to traditional R&F systems. We will discuss exams and procedures that require highly specialized equipment and peripherals in, and around the cath/angio lab. We will also discuss common issues related to servicing modern IVR systems.
