Motion Match

This program instructs PET Technologists in the theory and clinical application of Motion Match on Discovery PET/CT 600 and 690. Instruction is delivered by a GE PET Applications Specialist at the customer's facility. The training produces the best results when 1 to 4 Technologists are dedicated to the complete training session. It is also critical that key Physicians are available to review processing protocols and images. In addition, the patient schedule should be modified as indicated in the agenda to allow time for instruction. 

By the end of the program, Technologists who attend the complete training agenda will be able to use the system features and perform basic to intermediate procedures as described in the skill inventory included in the TiP training package.

Preparing Your Staff for Onsite Training

Preparing Your Staff for Onsite Applications

Our experience clearly shows that the maximum transfer of knowledge occurs when no more than 4 of our participants work with the Applications Specialist throughout the entire training program.

We advise that the personnel selected should fulfill the following criteria:

  • Relevant previous experience
  • Good knowledge of medical technology and terminology
  • Willingness to learn through meeting new challenges
  • Ability to communicate skills to others
  • Understanding of department routines

From an operational standpoint your department will benefit most by selecting those who will be primary operators of the system rather than those in a supervisory/management role.

Comprehensive preparation for the training program is essential to its success. Before training, selected personnel should:

  • Study the Operator's Manual delivered with your system
  • Ensure familiarity with relevant areas of technology and terminology through reading current literature
  • Have their normal duties delegated for the training period

Preparing Your Department for Onsite Training

Preparing Your Department for Onsite Applications

Recommended department conditions:

  • Room construction should be complete and all necessary permits granted
  • System installation, calibration and performance testing is complete
  • Open house visits and other staff training are not scheduled
  • Instruction on ancillary equipment is completed before system training
  • Department routine is organized to minimize interruptions
  • Physicians and other personnel who may need to be present at times during the training are notified
  • Imaging accessories, archive media and other supplies are available
  • Patient exams are scheduled according to the training agenda

Note: If for any reason your department is not completely ready, please do not hesitate to reschedule training. Incomplete preparation may compromise the quality of the program.


CE Considerations for Onsite Training

Continuing Education credit may be earned by Technologists who complete the training curriculums as presented by the Applications Specialist. The Applications training is designed to enhance learning, prepare the Technologists to provide the best patient care possible and to achieve particular learning outcomes or objectives. Planning for this training requires the use of certain content and instructional strategies.
