    About this class

    Magnetic Resonance
    TiP Applications
    Onsite / TVA Training

    This program instructs MR Technologists in the start-up operation of a Signa HDxt 1.5T MR system. Instruction is delivered in two 4-day sessions by a GE MR Applications Specialist at the customer’s facility. This training produces the best results when a core group of 4 MR Technologists is dedicated to the complete session. It is also critical that key Radiologists are available to review images. In addition, the patient schedule should be modified to allow time for instruction. In addition, the patient schedule should be modified for the onsite training segment to allow time for instruction. This program includes 10 hours of TVA (TiP Virtual Assist) follow-up.

    • Overview

      By the end of the program Technologists should be able to operate new features and perform basic to intermediate clinical applications on the Signa HDxt 1.5T system.
