Title (EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR IMAGE QUALITY ACCREDITATION, HANDS ON CME, AND FOR CONTROL AND ANALYSIS OF ACCREDITATION AT THE ENTERPRISE LEVEL
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF D'HABILITATION EN QUALITE D'IMAGE, DE PRATIQUE DE FORMATION MEDICALE CONTINUE, ET DE CONTROLE ET D'ANALYSE DES HABILITATIONS A L'ECHELLE D'UNE ENTREPRISE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and device for accreditation of a user on an imaging device is described. The method and device can also be used for providing electronic hands-on continuing medical education credits/hours based on proficiency in generating high-quality images. In addition, other medical imaging devices, such as an ultrasound system - in which image quality is dependent on the user professional's ability - can be upgraded using the disclosed methods and devices, thereby allowing the system to automatically freeze an image if it is best-quality rated. Finally, the disclosed invention provides an analysis of accreditation at the enterprise level.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif permettant l'habilitation du personnel pour l'utilisation d'un dispositif d'imagerie. Ce procédé et ce dispositif peuvent également servir à dispenser des crédits/heures de pratique de formation médicale continue orientée sur la compétence en matière de production d'images de haute qualité. D'autres dispositifs d'imagerie médicale, comme par exemple un système à ultrasons, dans lesquelles la qualité d'image dépend des compétences professionnelles de l'utilisateur, peuvent être modifiés par les procédés et des dispositifs décrits, de manière à permettre au système d'effectuer un arrêt automatique sur une image lorsque la qualité de celle-ci est jugée optimale. Enfin cette invention concerne un procédé d'analyse des habilitations à l'échelle d'une entreprise.
