Arey attends seminar
Steve Arey recently attended a Service Provider Safety and Compliance Seminar presented by the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Environmental Health, Radiation Protection Section.
The seminar focused on safety and protection of the public from sources of ionizing radiation emitted from medical X-rays.
Each person who sells or services ionizing radiation machines (X-ray) must be registered with the state.
In 1990, Arey became the first person in the state to be recognized as a Certified Radiological Equipment Specialist. He is also a Certified Biomedical Equipment Technician and is president of Best of Rowan LLC, a medical equipment service company in Salisbury.
The U.S. Patent Office issued a registered trademark on Arey’s invention, which is called the P+ Visual Image Comparison X-ray Quality Assurance Test Phantom. The device, which was designed for testing both film/screen and digital systems, is being marketed to hospitals, outpatient facilities, and physicians’ offices for reducing unnecessary radiation exposure from medical X-rays to the general public.
