Imaging Webinars Remain Popular

The TechNation Webinar Wednesday Series continues to draw imaging service professionals seeking knowledge and tips to help them better do their jobs.

The webinar “Master RTI’s Ocean Quick Check QA Software” sponsored by RTI and presented by Key Account Manager Erik Wikström is just one example.

Wikström has global experience training imaging engineers and technicians in using X-ray QA software to drive workflow process improvements.

The webinar included a demonstration of RTI’s Ocean Quick Check QA software. Ocean Quick Check has helped many imaging technicians reduce the time needed for QA testing, while at the same time improving the quality and accuracy of their X-ray QA reporting.

Webinar attendees gained valuable insights into new ways of improving efficiency in their X-ray QA workflow. The presentation concluded with a Q&A session.

Almost 200 people attended the live webinar and shared positive comments via a post-webinar survey.

“The information provided in the webinar was very interesting and explained well,” Erik B. said.

“It’s great to have a vendor showcase their new test devices and how to use those devices in the field, which helps us with budgeting new test equipment or enhancing our preventive maintenance program,” Brian G. said.

Another recent webinar, sponsored by Universal Medical, was described by one attendee as “excellent.”

“An excellent balance of well-organized and delivered prepared comments covering a range of issues in maintaining nuclear medicine system with panel of in-house experts at Universal Medical that offered excellent responses to questions,” attendee Rob D. wrote in his post-webinar survey.

“Nuclear Medicine Service: A Guide for Selecting the Right Service for Your Facility” also offered attendees the opportunity to earn 1 CE credit from the ACI.

Craig Snodgrass, National Service Manager at Universal Medical, did an outstanding job providing information to attendees. He discussed choosing an independent service provider, selecting the ideal type of service contract, best practices one should be performing, and using fully reconditioned parts versus “as is” used parts. The webinar concluded with a Q&A session.

Rob D. wasn’t the only person who thought the webinar was “excellent.”

“If Siskel & Ebert were still alive, they would both give Webinar Wednesdays two thumbs up,” Michael N. wrote.

“Webinar Wednesdays are really informative, the best and easiest way for continuing education and always an eye opener,” Ouafa A. wrote in his survey.

“Innovations in Ultrasound System Diagnostics” was another popular imaging webinar. The webinar, which was sponsored by Summit Imaging, was eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI.

Summit Imaging Manager of Global Education and Training Kyle Grozelle discussed new and emerging tools and skills to troubleshoot and diagnose equipment in-house effectively. He explained how this approach to servicing and maintaining ultrasound equipment allows for a lower cost and reduced downtime. He showed how to use tools available in any biomed shop along with the knowledge of technicians to examine common symptoms and errors. Grozelle also discussed the installation of common parts that sometimes require additional steps and configuration to restore a system to working order. The presentation concluded with a Q&A session.

At the conclusion of the presentation, attendees had gained knowledge and skills that will enable them to diagnose a wide variety of ultrasound equipment as well as the resources to repair a system to full functionality.

Attendees had the opportunity to share their thoughts about the webinar via a post-webinar survey and they were not shy about how much they benefit from the presentations.

“I’ve attended several webinars over the years and they offer such a convenience in the material. Some are good, some great and some are simply fantastic,” Lee W. said. “This webinar would fall under fantastic and it grabbed my interest enough to send an email to my boss inquiring about the hosted product.”

“Great webinar on further in-house and third-party ultrasound service, that is not dependent on the OEM,” Robert M. wrote.

“This was a great webinar for me as a biomed who is very new to the ultrasound field. I am also happy to hear that Summit Imaging has such great support for us biomeds. Nice to find another company to call when we have equipment down. I am passing on their info to all my other co-workers,” Stephanie S. said. ICE
