This technical training course is specially designed for Field Service Engineers working with Independent Service Organizations. On the other hand, Biomedical Technicians and Engineers or other technical staff at the hospitals who would like to do the first line service in their radiology departments are also welcomed.
This course aims to bring the student at a technical level so that he can perform periodic maintenance, quality assurance and calibrations with confidence. By the end of the training, student will gain the capability of troubleshooting on the Magnetom Concerto and Magnetom C! MR scanners.
Servicing open MRIs also require the knowledge of MRI Physics. MRI Physics is discussed at the very beginning of this course, to give an overal understanding of MR imaging fundementals. Equipment specific details like System, Host/Imager, RF System, Gradient System, Cooling System etc. follows.
During the course period, you will join hands on practical sessions and find chance to play(!) with the actual equipment itself. At these sessions, you will gain confidence and in depth knowledge about the equipment.
You will discover how simple to view and filter the so called Siemens Event Viewer(error logs), and how useful they are in case of a failure.
You will also learn about the Host and Imager computers, cost effective repairs of Host and Imager computers, installation tips&tricks, mechanical and passive shim, tune up, software (Syngo) loading and many more useful topics about Magnetom Concerto and Magnetom C! MR scanners.
This course covers the following MR scanners;
- Magnetom Concerto 0.23T
- Magnetom C! 0.35T
