The recent Webinar Wednesday presentation “How Can You Decrease X-ray Tube Arcing? What You Should Know About Its Causes and Prevention” was eligible for 1 credit from the ACI. The Dunlee-sponsored webinar was presented by Rolf Behling, founder and owner of XtraininX.
X-ray tube arcing can cause image artifacts and system damage. Understanding its causes and how to prevent them can help increase uptime and get the most out of CT scanners. In this webinar, attendees were able to learn about how arcing (high-voltage discharges in X-ray tubes) affects a CT scanner. Behling discussed the most important components and technologies impacting arcing and introduced the physics and material science behind this phenomenon. He helped attendees understand how to prevent arcing and how to mitigate the effects of an arcing incident. And, they were able to gain understanding about how to assess equipment and technology in terms of how they impact arcing.
The popular webinar drew 165 attendees for the live presentation and secured the best rating of 2020 with a 4 out of 5 with 5 being the highest possible rating. Two lucky attendees won prizes during the webinar. Dick Lee of Hawaii Pacific Health won a Webinar Wednesday T-shirt. Penn State Health Imaging Engineer James Bassler won an Amazon gift card.
Attendees provided feedback via a post-webinar survey that included the question: “Why did you attend today’s webinar? And, was it worth your time?”
“The presenter was brilliant in his knowledge of tubes and the explanations of how arcing occurs. However the prevention or mitigation of tube arcing from a service perspective, I thought was a little short. Some OEMs, through their respective service application, have tube monitoring and I was hoping to get a little more insight on these applications or other resources,” said F. Wasnowski, CE quality analyst.
“I was interested in the topic, and thought to check it out, didn’t expect it to be this incredible! Absolutely worth the time,” said A. Salam, senior sales and field service engineer.
“I wanted to learn more about X-ray tubes and arcing since it has happened a few times to us. The time was really worth it because it was easy to understand, the slides helped a lot to understand what the presenter was saying,” said A. Negron, imaging group leader.
“Yes, the presentation was very informative and well worth my time. I have a much better understanding of some of the processes I use when working on cath labs and CT,” said Bassler.
