TechNation’s Webinar Wednesday series continues to grow as it delivers ACI-approved continuing education credits to HTM professionals across the nation.
The recent webinar “Clinical Engineers’ Critical Role in Ultrasound Accreditation – Why It Matters To Departments and YOU!” was sponsored by Innovatus Imaging.
The 60-minute webinar was presented by Matt Tomory, Vice President of Ultrasound Center of Excellence, and Ted Lucidi, Clinical Insights and Customer Experience of Innovatus Imaging. Accreditation is one of the most critical aspects of imaging facility operations, yet many clinical engineers are unaware of where their facilities stand and what they personally are responsible for on a day-to-day compliance basis. What you don’t know could be impacting your operational and diagnostic efficiencies. This educational session created awareness of the imortant role clinical engineers play and how they can fulfill that role efficiently and effectively.
Beyond understanding the purposes and objective of accreditation, attendees learned the following:
• Testing criteria that each board requires relative to ultrasound image quality.
• Performing common tests using several transducer models.
• Assessing transducer performance in the field per the various boards’ requirements.
• Acquiring and assembling the Quality Control data required for accreditation.
• Affordable tips to reduce operational costs while maintaining accreditation standards.
The presentation received positive feedback with a rating o 4 on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best possible rating.
