When a Siemens medical imaging system goes down, fixing the problem and getting it operating again as soon as possible is a top priority. If you're unable to scan patients, there are negative financial consequences, including the potential to lose patients to the competition and damage to your healthcare organizations reputation.Theres good reason for this, too. Computed tomography (CT) equipment, angiography, fluoroscopy, and MRI systems are all complex and expensive pieces of technology requiring in-depth knowledge, including safety training and electrical engineering experience.
In todays edition of the MedWrench blog I would like to highlight my brief Q&A session with Frank Watts, Service Engineer at Medical Imaging Technologies.
CT scanners are used on just about every area of the body to identify medical issues. With such an important and expensive piece of equipment, medical facilities often employ a comprehensive quality control program.
