Computed Tomography TVA Training
How well will your Computed Tomography system live up to your expectations?
That will largely depend on how well your imaging professionals understand even its most advanced capabilities and how to use them with skill and finesse. Investments you make toward this goal can be recognized many fold over time.
Payroll is typically the single greatest cost for any healthcare institution. The better you can equip your people to deal quickly and intelligently with whatever may arise, the more long-term value you and your patients will receive.

About TiP Virtual Assist (TVA) Training
TiP TVA Program Overview
TiP Virtual Assist (TVA), a GE Training in Partnership (TiP) program, revolutionizes applications training with live, remote and interactive sessions conducted from hundred or even thousands of miles away. Powered by a high-speed broadband link, TVA allows the trainer to connect directly with the customer's imaging console for simultaneous observation of the screen, shared control of the mouse and two-way interaction by phone.
Radiologists and Technologists feel like their remote trainer is actually there in person. The end result; a boundary-less education model combining the hands-on benefits of onsite training with the convenience of distance learning for improved productivity and enhanced knowledge retention.
After installation of your new AW or DI system, a GE Applications Specialist will contact you to schedule a convenient time for training delivery. Total duration for each TVA program varies. Some programs are designed to be delivered in one "visit", while others are segmented into "modules" to help you better manage your training time. The agenda included in the TVA training packet you will receive describes the content of each module, the recommended delivery schedule, and the total contact hours per module.
Preparing Your Department for TVA Training
Prepare Your Department for TVA
Optimal training results are produced when a core group of 4 Technologists/Radiologists are dedicated to the complete program. To ensure a learning environment without distraction, the patient schedule should be modified to allow full participation during the contact hours for each module. You will need to ensure that a telephone / speakerphone is available at the system, and that your system is broadband connected.
CE Considerations for TVA Training
CE certification eligibility, where applicable, requires attendance of all modules in their entirety. The instructing GE Applications Specialist will verify training attendance via random roll call throughout the training program. CE certificates may be printed directly from the TiP Applications Post Training Documentation web site.
