High-end computed tomography (CT) scanners are capable of producing stunning 4-D images of almost any anatomy. Hospitals feel pressured to quickly adopt the latest technology, and costly features often go underused.

The pressure to adopt the latest technology versus what is sufficient to meet clinical needs makes the buying process complicated and filled with unanswered questions.

At the October 17, 2012 web conference, presenters from ECRI Institute will review the CT technology presently available and discuss the factors that your organization should be considering when selecting a new CT scanner.

In this 90-minute web conference, presenters from ECRI Institute will:

  • Review what to expect from different CT technologies
  • Examine the criteria for safely selecting the appropriate CT scanner technology
  • Advise on where to start with an RFP
  • Present tips on how to select favorable maintenance (and purchasing) options for CT scanners

Moderator:

  • James P. Keller, Jr, MS, Vice President, Health Technology Evaluation and Safety, ECRI Institute

Presenters:

  • Jason Launders, Sr. Project Officer/Medical Physicist, ECRI Institute
  • Robert Maliff, MBA, Director, Applied Solutions Group, ECRI Institute

The 90-minute interactive format of these web conferences provides ample time to interact with the panel through a Q&A session. The web conference format encourages team participation.

This program is intended for Biomedical and clinical engineers; radiology and imaging managers; materials management staff; nurses and clinical staff; risk managers; and medical directors. Members of ECRI Institute's Health Devices System, Health Devices Gold, and SELECTPlus™ programs will receive this program at no cost as part of their membership, but advance registration is required.
