No matter how sophisticated MR technology becomes, the skills and instincts of the MR technologist will remain key to superior clinical imaging, patient care and ultimately, to your facility's success.
That's why HMSA is proud to offer the Hitachi Institute for MR Technologists (HITS), in-house training program exclusively for technologists from Hitachi MR customer sites. Attendance at HITS is free of charge to new Hitachi MR system customers as well as customers with existing Service Agreements.
HMSA has created this separate customer training institute to augment our extensive on site Applications Training. This course takes place at HMSA headquarters in Twinsburg, Ohio and includes hands-on scanning sessions along with classroom instruction.
Note that this training course is for Hitachi MR customers only. Please contact our HITS representative at (800) 800-3106 x2889 to make your reservations. Thank you.
Hitachi Medical Systems America offers the HITS course for Echelon Oval and Oasis customers. The course consists of multiple classroom lectures, as well as hands-on scanning sessions. The classroom lectures offer a review of MR Physics and Safety, Pulse Sequences, Artifacts, Imaging Parameters, Imaging Techniques, and basic and advanced MRA methods. An accreditation presentation is provided so that technologists can come away with an increased comfort level and better understanding of this process. An interactive demonstration is performed for the review of the MR console and coils for each MR system. Hands-on scanning sessions are provided to reinforce classroom principles, as well as to allow the technologists the opportunity to perform multiple scans on the Oasis or Echelon Oval system.
The HITS training course is ARRT approved for 17 Category A Continuing Education credits.
