Solon, Ohio-based RSTI announces the launch of a new contrast injector training course with Althea Group faculty. This course is designed to equip HTM professionals—and imaging equipment specialists, in particular—with the skills they need to perform preventative maintenance and troubleshoot contrast injector system failures and restore them to operation, according to course organizers. It will be available at the technician’s location onsite or at the training facility in Solon, Ohio, with Althea faculty.

“RSTI is committed to providing their students with the best biomedical and diagnostic imaging service training available. We’re excited to bring Althea’s contrast injector training to our facility and provide students with the opportunity to learn from a leader in the industry,” says RSTI CEO, Todd Boyland.

The course is taught by Althea Group’s Michael Gossman, an injector modality manager, with curriculum centered around five main pillars:

  1. Knowledge of operation
  2. Operational functions
  3. On-the-spot repairs
  4. Parts replacement
  5. Preventative maintenance

This course is tailored to fit the students’ individual needs. Students will train on a minimum of two contrast injector models per session with the option to train on up to four, including:


  • · Stellant
  • · Stellant w/Certegra Workstation
  • · Spectris Solaris/EP
  • · MRExperion
  • · Mark V Provis
  • · Mark VII Arterion


  • · CTA
  • · CVI


  • · Optivantage
  • · Optistar
  • · Angiomat
  • · CT9000

“The Althea philosophy is about putting the power back into the hands of the service engineer and our passion for training comes through in all our classes. We are excited to partner with RSTI on this initiative in alignment with their commitment to quality and comprehensive biomedical service training,” says CEO Dan Siler, of Althea US Inc.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to approach any contrast injector with confidence and knowledge on how all contrast injectors operate and will be able to demonstrate knowledge of basic contrast injector theory, perform basic system repairs, perform preventive maintenance, and demonstrate how to use an Injector Service Tool Kit, according to course officials.
