In this installment of Hobie's How-To, Hobie walks you through how to set up a system preset backup on the Philips Epiq and Affiniti ultrasound systems. This preset would be used to save your data to its original state and save your settings in case of a system malfunction or a lost hard drive. A system preset backup will save all original data from when the preset is created and will revert back to this preset on the media device when enabled.

Hobie's How-To is an ultrasound guide that will help you learn the ins and outs of common ultrasound problems. Hobie Sears, Probo Medical's Director of Training with over 30 years of experience, will be walking you through the most common ultrasound training techniques that he teaches at his ultrasound service training classes at our Tampa facility. Whether you’re a biomedical engineer or just someone looking to fix an ultrasound system, our video series will provide you with the hands-on experience you need to perform basic unit repairs or ultrasound usage training. Our goal with these video series is to keep you fluent in the newest systems and empower you to fix system issues on your own in no time.
