Conference Sessions Biomedical Metrology: Back to Basics of Test and Measurements
Participants will learn metrology terminology, definitions and calculations. They will be able to use these tools to aid them in reading and understanding equipment specifications and identifying the appropriate equipment for the test and measurements performed during Preventive Maintenance. Some of the key terms and their uses will include; Accuracy, Readability/Resolution, Scale, Uncertainty, TUR, TER, to name a few.
The participants will leave with a clear understanding of what to look for from manufacturer specifications to select the proper equipment as well as contributors that may affect the measurements during their testing and how to document these when necessary. Our goal is to give them more confidence to know they are performing the testing in accordance with manufacturer and regulatory guidelines.
