Mai 2017

SST South America expands presence in the Caribbean.

Over the course of numerous projects, we expanded our service network in the Caribbean.
The Caribbean market has its own rules. Medical facilities are usually smaller, located at respective islands. Facilities are often hard to get to. Supplying those facilities with spare parts is not easy and qualified maintenance staff are hard to find. SST South America accepted this challenge and found functional solutions, for which the customers have been grateful.

April 2017

Cicero E has been approved
The new Cicero E 24 x 30 DR Panel designed for the usage in mobile (Equine) practices has been approved.
The first devices will be delivered next month.
The Cicero E is an addition to the Cicero product line, which was specifically designed for Equine practices, together with the Cicero M and the Cicero WL.

March 2017

Long Leg Option
The Long Leg solution for orthopaedics – Cicero LL – has been completed.
Thanks to the Cicero LL it is now possible to perform a long leg shot with an overall length of 80cm (Cicero LL 2) or 120 cm (Cicero LL3) with only one X-ray shot.
SST has been one of the leading companies in the section of stitching functions for years.
With the new development we managed to realise a DR solution that is able to get all shots necessary for a long leg or long spine shot at once, and therefore without delay.

All your questions are important to us! Have a question that has not been answered below? Contact us and we will be happy to help you with it.

SST installed its first DR panel in 1999. Back then only Canon panels were used. In 2005 SST started to also use panels from Varian and since 2009 panels from DR-Factory.

We give a 2-year warranty on our systems.
This is regulated by European law.

In contrast to others, SST is not trying to bypass those regulations through the general terms and conditions.

There are different kinds of maintenance contracts that are individually tailored to our customers’ needs.

In most cases, yes. Old systems are, compared to newer ones, easier to configure due to their simpler structure.

We can test our system at your practice or clinic, and set up a demonstration. We are also able to make a few test shots with your system so you can check that the system works.

We from SST are also taking care of hospital installations with twenty-four-seven patient care. Therefore, we adjusted our service hours to be available round-the-clock.

We got rid of our answering machine. You will always speak with a real person at SST and usually won’t be put off for a call-back.

We do not use expensive hotlines and our service team operates in all time zones, to make sure there will always be someone who is available at any time.

This also applies for customers without a full-service contract.


Take a look around! We will gladly help with any upcoming questions.
