What you will learn

Course description: 

The purpose of this program is to provide technologists with the ability to understand and execute all basic and advanced functions and options of the Philips Mobile Diagnost wDR equipment.  Training will consist of both didactic and hands on instruction. We will provide theoretical concepts and associated clinical reinforcement of digital radiography.  Training in reprogramming the image processing parameters and techniques for image viewing, image reprocessing and manipulation as well as film formatting will be provided.  The Key operator may also learn and demonstrate customization and manipulation of the anatomy database and configuration tool.  Technologists will convey this understanding through hands on manipulation, exercises and demonstrations of proper visualization techniques to display the anatomy in question.  Key operators are expected to provide training to additional radiology personnel as well as maintain the system for optimal image quality.

Evaluation:  Upon conclusion, the trainee shall demonstrate the ability to set up and manipulate the system, complete procedures efficiently, display image quality evaluation, and complete the skills checklist as well as show proficiency in customizing the database.

Clinical Education Program for Mobile Diagnost wDR: Clinical Education Specialists will provide twenty-four hours of  Mobile Diagnost wDR (wireless portable system) Onsite Education for up to four key operators, selected by customer, including technologists from night/weekend shifts if necessary. CEU credits may be available if the participant meets the guidelines provided by Philips. Depending on your system configuration, the first four hours onsite may be spent configuring new equipment for specific clinical needs, as well as reviewing important safety features and quality procedures. Please read guidelines for more information.

Note: Site must be patient-ready. Philips personnel are not responsible for actual patient contact or operation of equipment during education sessions except to demonstrate proper equipment operation.
