Ultrasound System Training – Who Needs it?

So… somebody decided to purchase a refurbished ultrasound system (better known as used equipment), it was within the budget, it came with a 90 day warranty, and the user thought “How hard can this be? I’ve been scanning for years with a different system, but they’re all the same, right?” Well, no, not really.  I think that buying an ultrasound system from a reputable reseller is often a good idea when budgets are tight, it’s kind of like buying a new vs. a used car, new things drop in value as soon as they are bought so often you can get a relatively new ultrasound system for a great price.  However, if you buy a system that nobody has scanned on before you are not maximizing that investment and getting the most out of its features.

Many of the systems have the same types of general features such as image optimization, but do you know where that knob/button is and how best to utilize it to capture the image?  What about the DICOM features on the system?  What about learning how to start doing aortas or stress in a cardiology practice?  What if you are now scanning on a different version (we call them revision levels) of an ultrasound system, do you know what’s the same or what has changed?

Take me to Renaissance System Training!

Nobody has time to sit down and read the manual (if you even got one with your system delivery), so rely on an expert to come to your site and teach you about that newly acquired ultrasound system so that you can begin taking better images resulting in better diagnoses.

Now… if only someone could show me how to change the clock in my used SUV…
