Digital Mammography: Quality control and medical physics checks

This course will teach the service engineer the tests that are performed by the medical physicist, and also during an annual PM. We will review the digital detector technology and performance characteristics from the major digital mammography OEMs. We will review the quality control tests themselves and also cover:

  • How the test/checks are performed
  • What tools and test equipment are required to perform system tests/checks
  • Address what the tests are attempting to quantify
  • Look at corrective actions to consider when tests fail (component replacement, calibration, etc.)
