GE/OEC Elite (CFD) Flat Panel

Overview

This course is designed to provide the advanced service professional with the skills and knowledge to maintain the OEC Elite CFD (CMOS Flat Detector) flat panel detector C-Arm systems. All adjustments will be discussed to establish optimum performance criteria. Theory and hands-on sessions will develop the skills necessary to troubleshoot system failures and restore it to operation.

Prerequisites

To attend this course, the service professional must have good fundamental knowledge and understanding of the principles gained through attendance at our Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3 X-ray courses or equivalent field experience.

Objectives

At the completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Operate the OEC Elite CFD
  • Identify all systems, subsystems and components of the OEC Elite CFD
  • Verify power supplies for accuracy and function
  • Service and calibrate system batteries and charger circuits
  • Utilize all communication interfaces to calibrate and evaluate the system
  • Evaluate the performance of the X-ray generator, imaging, and workstation sections of each
    system
  • Calibrate and adjust all components of the X-ray generator, imaging chain and workstation
  • Restore the system to proper functional state following a system failure
  • Evaluate and repair mechanical systems
