Webinar Covers Contrast Injector Troubleshooting

The recent ICE webinar “Troubleshooting Basics for Bayer/Medrad Contrast Injectors” was sponsored by Althea and approved for 1.0 ARRT Category A CE credit by the AHRA (AHRA Reference: LEC11420; Expiration Date: 10/6/2022).

In this 60-minute webinar, Modality Manager Michael Gossman provided basic troubleshooting procedures for common Bayer/Medrad Contrast Injectors. He provided an explanation of error codes, most common unit failures and an overview on how to correct these errors on the five primary Bayer/Medrad injector models.

Gossman provided additional information in a question-and-answer session.

One attendee asked, “When looking at the error codes and possible causes, how accurate are the probable causes?”

Gossman said the error codes usually “get you in the ballpark.”

Another good question was, “How do you troubleshoot the Solaris EP injector when the injector head is in the MRI scan room?”

Gossman explained how the work is done outside of the MRI room.

The webinar was well attended with almost 100 attendees at the live presentation. A recording of the webinar is also available for on-demand viewing.

Attendees provided feedback on the webinar via a survey that included the question, “How well did the content that was delivered match what you were promised when you registered?”

“Yes, the basic troubleshooting techniques covered what is needed to quickly remedy the problem. The best tip was that batteries cause the most problems for the Solaris,” said R. Johnson, BMET.

“Very well; I have a good idea of what kinds of errors may occur and how to diagnose/treat them,” said J. Tirado, clinical engineering.

“I was not expecting you to cover 5 models of injectors! That was awesome. I was thinking 1 or 2 could be covered in that time frame,” said B. Judah, senior biomedical equipment technician.
