TechNation’s Webinar Wednesday series continues to provide quality education eligible for ACI credit. The most recent webinar “Who Built Your Ultrasound Transducer? Exploring Ultrasound Transducer Repairs With End Users” was sponsored by Summit Imaging and was presented by Larry Nguyen, CEO and CTO at Summit Imaging; Carolyn Coffin, MPH, RDMS, RVT, RDCS, Sonography Consultant; and Matthew Schwartz, MFA, RDMS, Sonography Consultant.
The trio discussed ultrasound transducers and how components used to repair may be impacting patient diagnosis. The session covered several areas including patient care, recent FDA inquiries as well as legal and economic repercussions. The webinar included examples of OEM versus non-OEM transducer repairs. Coffin and Schwartz diagnosed issues they find with the images, and how those issues impact the quality and reliability of a transducer.
Attendees discovered how HTM professionals and sonographers can work together to provide the best care for patients while lowering total costs.
The webinar was attended by 158 individuals who provided positive reviews via a post-webinar survey.
