Technical Prospects, Appleton, Wis., is expanding its quality assurance bay with the addition of two Siemens CT scanners and its first Siemens MRI system. The new equipment, which includes a Siemens Somatom Scope and a Siemens Somatom Perspective, will be used for training courses and parts testing beginning in the first quarter of 2020.

“With the new Siemens Scope and Perspective CT scanners and the Siemens MRI system, we are on the leading edge of the third-party market for training and quality assurance,” says Kevin Brinkman, technical prospects director of Technical Engineering. “We are training field engineers in preventive maintenance, troubleshooting, and servicing with a hands-on approach that allows them to actually fix the newest equipment available.”

The new training courses will cover the major system components that make up the Somatom Family system platform, with students engaging in discussions, lectures, and labs centered on the core principles of operation, configuration, and repair.

Training courses and schedules for 2020 are still in development and will be released soon. To learn more about Technical Prospects’ complete suite of parts, training opportunities, and support, visit
