The Medical Education & Training Campus (METC), a United States Department of Defense integrated campus, has installed six Agfa HealthCare DX-D 100 mobile digital x-ray systems. All BMET trainees will use the Agfa systems in their basic x-ray training curriculum. Agfa Healthcare will provide on-site training support at METC to help create a curriculum for the program.
“The Medical Education and Training Campus (METC) Biomedical Equipment Maintenance Technician (BMET) Training Program is responsible for training up to 440 Army, Navy and Air Force apprentice level BMETs annually in an intense 11-month program comprised of comprehensive didactic curriculum and challenging medical device practical laboratories,” BMET program director Muhammad Faaruwq said. “These new Agfa HealthCare digital x-ray systems will assist METC in satisfying two major mission training objectives associated with malfunction isolation and preventive maintenance inspection and calibration of mobile radiographic systems.”
