This course will teach the service engineer what tests are performed during an annual PM and by a medical physicist. We will review the digital detector technology and performance characteristics from the major digital mammography OEMs. We will review the quality control tests and cover:

• How tests and checks are performed

• What tools and test equipment are required to perform system tests/checks

• What the tests are attempting to quantify

• Corrective actions needed (component replacement, calibration, etc.) when tests fail
