Hitachi Healthcare America


No matter how sophisticated MR technology becomes, the skills and instincts of the MR technologist will remain key to superior clinical imaging, patient care and ultimately, to your facility's success. Hitachi offers HITS, an in-house training program exclusively for technologists from Hitachi MR customer sites. 

HHA has created this separate customer training institute to augment our extensive on site Applications Training. The course takes place at our headquarters in Twinsburg, Ohio and includes hands-on scanning sessions along with classroom instruction.

Attendance at HITS is free of charge to new Hitachi MR system customers as well as customers with existing Service Agreements.
