The recent Webinar Wednesday presentation “Useful Tools for Biomedical Engineers” by RTI Group’s Erik Wikström illustrated what can be achieved with the help of modern, fit-for-purpose instruments, probes and software, combined with efficient procedures. This webinar was eligible for 1 credit from the ACI. It was sponsored by RTI Group.
One part of a biomedical engineer’s work is looking after diagnostic radiology equipment. The traditional responsibilities include performing preventive maintenance, troubleshooting and first-line repair as well as maintaining service records of the installed base of equipment. With tougher requirements on traceability and increasing demands on integration of reports and service data into software systems for a better overview of the status of the installed base, there is a need for a more efficient process than simply writing down measurement data and doing the evaluation by hand.
Wikström also fielded questions from attendees during the webinar session.
One question was, “Does the cable measure voltage or on the generator controller board?”
Wikström said that it measures the voltage but converts it according to a conversion factor that we know. His completed answer is available via the on-demand version of the webinar at WebinarWednesday.live.
Approximately 100 individuals registered for the webinar. Attendees provided positive feedback via a survey that included the question, “What part of today’s webinar did you like the most?”
“The latest tools to utilize for testing medical equipment,” Biomed Supervisor Arlondo Bia said.
“Ability to get CEU and nice to know what latest tools are available,” Biomedical Equipment Support Specialist Tanja Price said.
“I liked seeing the diversity of metering equipment,” Biomed William Easley said.
