Transducer Troubleshooting Tips from a Pro

TechNation Webinar Wednesdays continue to provide insightful knowledge to biomeds around the globe. The most recent Summit Imaging-sponsored webinar “Minimizing Transducer Failur through Proper Care and Early Detection” was a success with 200 people attending the live presentatiom

Summit Imaging Manager of Global Education and Training Kyle Grozelle discussed keys to preventing transducer failures, how to implement proper care methods and best practices to ensure that everyone who handles a transducer is able to identify early warning signs.
