The TechNation Webinar Wednesday series continues to grow and serve the HTM community. The popular series eclipsed the 7,000 attendee mark in November.
AllParts Medical and Dunlee sponsored the webinar titled “Save Money and So Much More – Embrace the Circular Economy.” This webinar featured Steve Muniak, Regional Sales Manager, Central Region AllParts Medical & Dunlee – a Division of Philips. Muniak formerly served as the Director of Digital Services with SD Myers division where he was charged with growing the technology solutions division.
During his presentation, Muniak discussed today’s linear “take, make, dispose” economic model, which relies on large quantities of cheap, easily accessible materials and energy, and is a model that is reaching its physical limits. He illustrated how a circular economy is an attractive and viable alternative that medical technology companies are already embracing.
He also provided insightful tips and advice throughout the webinar. He even participated in a Q&A session at the conclusion of his prepared presentation providing additional information to attendees.
Almost 300 people registered for the TechNation Webinar Wednesday presentation “Understanding Image Quality” sponsored by Summit Imaging.
During the presentation, Carolyn Coffin, MPH, RDMS, RDCS, RVT, department chair and associate professor, diagnostic ultrasound at Seattle University discussed acoustic physics and principles as they apply to medical ultrasound, operator controls and the sonographer’s role in acquiring images and what sonographers expect from their ultrasound systems. She also touched on imaging artifacts and how to avoid them.
Kyle Grozelle, Manager of Global Education and Training at Summit Imaging, was also on hand and answered questions following Coffin’s presentation. Grozelle manages the Summit training program that offers personalized, interactive courses on ultrasound systems to health care organizations across the country.
On November 9, almost 300 people attended “Pressure’s On: Non-Invasive Blood Pressure Testing in Today’s Market” sponsored by Fluke Biomedical.
Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP) monitors have been on the market for decades. They are widely used by hospitals and medical facilities worldwide to gauge a patient’s blood pressure for diagnostic purposes and to gauge an individual’s overall health.
The webinar, presented by Jerry Zion and Andrew Clay from Fluke Biomedical, introduced new standards of testing NIBP, the best methods for testing, and relevant standards to test against. They also addressed questions in an informative Q&A session following their presentation.
The November 16 webinar “Mammography & MQSA – An Overview” featured insightful information from John DiPasquale, Technical Trainer for Technical Prospects LLC.
The primary purpose of the presentation was to acquaint field engineers with the MQSA law that surrounds the mammography modality that is part of the imaging world. Those attending received an overview and a short history. Attendees were educated about the requirements under MQSA including the equipment, specific personnel responsibilities, some associated key terminology and how the law applies to the digital equipment that is common in today’s health care facilities.
An informative Q&A session followed the prepared session in which DiPasquale shared his expert knowledge with attendees.
Participation in each webinar was eligible for 0.1 CE credit from the ACI.
