Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Newly Installed, Refurbished CT Scanner?
Installing a refurbished CT Scanner (or CT Simulator) is an exciting time for any department. Usually it is because a newer or better technology is needed, and an older unit is being replaced or upgraded. Or perhaps a center is expanding and the need to scan more patients requires a newer, faster machine. Or maybe a brand new diagnostic imaging center is looking for a cost-competitive option to mitigate start-up risks. Whatever the reason may be, a new machine installation is a cause for celebration.
However, one important piece that is sometimes overlooked after a refurbished CT scanner has been installed is training. Being able to use the new machine efficiently and effectively is as important as making sure you’ve purchased and installed the right machine.
Training your staff on how to properly use the equipment can pay dividends in the long run. It can reduce the anxiety that comes from learning something new. It can benefit your patients by ensuring that their scans are completed safely and comfortably. It will help to provide the radiologist with better quality images. Also, complete competence in machine operation can help to reduce the long term service costs of your machine by ensuring it’s used properly.
We at ROS really encourage our customers to purchase the optional Applications Training Program at the completion of a refurbished CT Scanner installation.
Benefits of Applications Training:
- Higher quality images
- Ensure your technicians and clinicians know proper operation of applications
- Safer CT scans
- Customizable to your make/model of CT Scanner
- We come to you and train at your location
- You can train with live patients to reduce/eliminate any downtime
The length of time of training programs can vary from two to five days, on average.
In addition to applications training we also offer other training programs, including service/support training for your biomedical engineer in order to help reduce your long term service costs.
