HTM professionals around the world continue to flock to the TechNation Webinar Wednesday Series for no-cost continuing education. One reason the series is so popular is the quality of the webinars. Another is that webinar participants are eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI.
“Wow! These TechNation webinars are more satisfying than a cold brewski on a 90-degree day after baling 40 acres of alfalfa! You gotta get you some,” Wayne P. wrote in his post-webinar survey.
And, he is not alone in his praise for the webinar series.
“Another informative webinar that helps me with my job and recertification needs,” Kelly W. noted.
“The information presented by the vendors on Webinar Wednesday is extremely educational and helpful,” Jim R. said.
Those three testimonials came after one webinar, but it is not the only one HTM professionals gave stellar reviews.
“Another great webinar. Always enjoy participating in these. Good refreshers on familiar topics and great information on topics that are new to me,” Allen G. wrote in his survey.
“I’ve been in the biomed field for over 10 years and I learn something new in every session,” Clifford W. said.
“The MD Publishing Webinars are a fantastic way to stay up to date with the latest trends in biomedical technology, and for refreshing your memories on topics you have trained on in the past and could use some brushing up on. The speakers are all industry personnel who are knowledgeable and generous with that knowledge and their time,” Eddie F. shared.
“The Webinar Wednesday series is a must for every HTM professional. I share info from the webinars in my staff meetings and encourage staff to participate,” Salim K. wrote.
One recent presentation that drew a huge crowd was the Conquest Imaging-sponsored webinar “Verifying Image Quality, How to Use an Ultrasound Phantom.”
Conquest Imaging Training Director Jim Rickner reviewed some poor image quality complaints from the field, described and illustrated the purpose of an ultrasound phantom and discussed multiple test descriptions and procedures for using a phantom in evaluating image quality.
The webinar concluded with an insightful Q&A session.
Ashton Solecki, the Product Manager of the Neonatal Test product line for Fluke Biomedical, discussed how to ensure proper performance of radiant warmers during another webinar. Her presentation included global testing standards, best practices for testing radiant warmers and skin temperature probe testing for incubators and radiant warmers. The webinar was sponsored by Fluke Biomedical.
Validating the performance and safety of radiant warmers and ensuring proper performance of skin temperature probes is crucial in protecting an infant’s safety and health. Solecki discussed how to help protect the safety of the smallest patients. She also fielded attendee questions during the webinar.
SPECT cameras were the subject of another webinar.
The TechNation Webinar Wednesday presentation “Procuring Your Perfect SPECT Camera” by Universal Medical Senior Product Manager Craig Diener discussed which cameras work best for specific clinical applications and shared notable features and differentiators of various cameras during the webinar.
Another topic covered in the presentation was patient volume in regards to demand for scans and workload limits for cameras as well as budget factors to keep in mind.
Diener also reviewed a facility requirements checklist before taking questions from attendees in an informative Q&A session.
