Siemens Nuclear Training

ECAM/Symbia E Series

This technical training course is specially designed for Field Service Engineers working with Independent Service Organizations. On the other hand, Biomedical Technicians and Engineers or other technical staff at the hospitals who would like to do the first line service in their nuclear medicine departments are also welcomed.

This course aims to bring the student at a technical level so that he can perform periodic maintenance, quality assurance and calibrations with confidence. By the end of the training, student will gain the capability of troubleshooting on the ECAM ans Symbia E gamma camera systems.

During the course period, you will join hands on practical sessions and find chance to play(!) with the actual equipment itself. At these sessions, you will gain confidence and in depth knowledge about the equipment.

Like in all Siemens modalities, you will discover how simple to view and filter the so called Siemens Event Viewer(error logs). But, you will quickly figure out that, unlike other Siemens modalities, the event viewer is not very helpful in case of a failure. So, we will teach you the right starting point, in case of motion and detector failuers.

You will also learn the differences between different Siemens detectors in the market, installation tips&tricks, PM-tube replacement, corrections, software (Syngo) loading and many more useful topics about ECAM and Symbia E gamma cameras.

This course covers the following gamma cameras;

- ECAM Single Head

- ECAM Dual Head

- Symbia E

This course covers the following scintillation detectors;

- HD3C Detector

- HD3R Detector

- Duet Detector (1 inch)

- HD4R Detector

- Foresight Detector
