The TechNation Webinar Wednesday series continues to provide some of the best free education available to HTM professionals as proven via reviews from actual webinar participants.
The recent UMRi-sponsored webinar “Nuc Med 101 – A Technical Perspective” was eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI for those who tuned in to the live presentation. A recorded presentation is available online. The webinar, which was attended by 264 individuals, received a 4.2 rating with 5 being the best possible rating.
The 60-minute webinar featured Universal Medical Training Support Manager and IT Manager Mike Hill. He started with the basics by answering the simple question “What is nuclear medicine?” He followed up with a look at radioactive material concepts, fundamentals of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. He also compared nuclear medicine with other imaging modalities (CT/MRI/X-ray) and discussed gamma cameras.
Universal Medical has nurtured a business philosophy founded on offering comprehensive nuclear medicine equipment services at a reduced price. Universal Medical’s products and services include, new and reconditioned nuclear imaging systems, quality parts, excellent equipment service, training courses for health care technology managers, camera system moves, technical and clinical support, flexible financing options, and more.
