Success in practice

Theoretical knowledge is not only a valuable asset but a basic requirement of efficient and successful work. However, there are many aspects of CT scanner repair and maintenance that can’t be learned from books, which is why the practical application of theoretical knowledge forms an essential and integral part of our courses. Our participants consolidate their knowledge by putting theory straight into practice on fully functional equipment in the seminar room. In addition, there are on average around ten CT systems installed for practice use in our showroom, ranging from single to 128-slice scanners.
