A FREE Webinar Presented by Dennis C. Leiner, Ph.D. and
Sponsered by Lighthouse Imaging and ACCES.
Wednesday, October 31, 2012 @ 1:00 pm Eastern
Endoscopes are a class of optical devices for visualizing the inside of the body and are used in almost all medical specialties in the hospital. Clinical engineering departments are now being asked to track their hospital’s inventory and perform preventive maintenance on these devices to assure that they are in good working order before use in minimally invasive procedures.
This presentation discusses the optics inside the surgical instruments that are utilized during endoscopic procedures. No background in physics or optical engineering is assumed by the presenter. Emphasis is given to the practical considerations in understanding the basic function/operation of all types of endoscopes. Simple quality tests are presented that will allow the clinical engineer to troubleshoot and maintain the hospital’s inventory of both rigid and flexible endoscope systems.
ACCES Webinars are free to anyone, anywhere involved in the Biomedical/Clinical Engineering profession.
