Basic Medical Electronics

Basic Medical Electronics

Course Length: 2 Days  |  Cost: $1,500

Course Outline

Basic Medical Electronics is designed to give the attendee a practical introduction of electronic components and circuits incorporated in Diagnostic X-Ray Systems Identification, characteristics, safety requirements and practical usage of components will be covered in lectures followed by hands on lab exercises using the actual components and necessary test equipment. Lab exercises will be completed using a breadboard and power supply where applicable. The breadboard with power supply and workbook are included in the course. The course is limited to four students to maximize instructor/student interaction and hands on labs.



Prior electronics training is not necessary, however the attendee should have basic math skills.



At the conclusion of this course the attendee will be able to identify and demonstrate functional characteristics and test basic electronic components.
