and CT scanners since 1996
Founded by a group of engineers who are trained and specialized in medical device OEMs, Link Medical Systems is one of the first independent service companies in Europe.
Link delivers customized service and maintenance for your CT, MRI and PET/CT systems in compliance with OEM standards. We are uniquely positioned to offer cost-effective services compared to the OEMs who tend to be less flexible in this sense. Link proves high level of expertise with its team of outstanding engineers and a long history of successful collaborations, and provides you with the most affordable and flexible service.
Link promptly responds to the needs of your organisation, and has special offers tailored to your requirements. Regular check-ups for the MRI and other systems play a critical role in keeping your equipment up and running.
We also provide a full range of services in Europe, Africa, Russia and Turkic Republics, starting from the product sale through management and disassembly of the CT, MRI, PET/CT or other nuclear medicine systems.
Cryogen – Liquid Helium – Coldhead – Compressor – Adsorber
Adsorber, coldhead and compressor units have to be monitored on a regular basis, and be replaced promptly when required. Link meets your system’s replacement part needs with its extensive range of spare parts. In its warehouse, Link stocks spare parts for all kinds of magnets models from leading manufacturers, and helps you lower your maintenance and operational costs.
Link’s field service engineers continuously and closely monitor your MRI’s cooling system, and inform you in order to avoid breakdown or malfunction. This helps minimize downtime and repair costs.
With a long history of working with Linde, Link has never failed even under challenging conditions. Our very own filling equipment and experienced staff enable us to offer the best price and fastest possible service for liquid helium supply, both nationally and internationally.
We provide and install GE / Siemens / Philips magnets as well as coldheads, compressors and adsorbers for all MRI models.
X-Ray tubes for all major manufacturers
We deliver original or compatible CT scanner X-Ray tubes with competitive prices and comprehensive guarantee. Our expert team also provides optional assembly and calibration services.
In addition, the service of renting tubes per slice is among the privileged services Link Medical Systems provides.
Please contact us to purchase an X-ray tube for your CT scanner.
MRI coil supply and repair
No matter which manufacturer’s MRI model you have; precise and reliable image data is related directly to the coil’s signal to noise ratio. MRI coil failures such as wear and damaged cables may occur due to frequent use, and cause reduction in image quality. Yet, these problems can be fixed easily.
Our fully equipped in-house electronics workshop is competent to undertake repairment and maintenance of coils from all the major MRI manufacturers, and perform quality control and functional testing on the coils before delivery to ensure compliance with current manufacturer requirements for S/N ratio.
We also offer replacements for the coils that can not be revitalized. Link provides you with the new or refurbished MRI coils so you can keep your radiology department up and running.
RF shielding on highest standards
FM radios, motors and other devices generate frequencies of different strength. When the noise generated from nearby electrical equipment picked up by the MRI, it causes significant image artifacts. Consequently, MRIs need to be placed in an effectively RF shielded room (Faraday cage) for optimal operation.
Production technique and materials are essential to the operation of MRI systems as well as the quality of assembly. They all have crucial effects on RF shielding.
High-quality copper foil, wooden frames, door systems, electrical filters and other components are chosen specifically for the construction and assembled.
Enclosures can be modular, moved, and relocated as needed. Link designs and produces RF rooms that meet the shielded enclosure requirements of all major MRI vendors.

Chiller service – repair
The cooling system is critical both to the optimal performance of an MRI system and for minimizing helium costs. For the equipment to operate at the highest levels of efficiency, the MRI chiller plays a key role.
Link works with local MRI chiller manufacturer Planer. For Planer’s chiller models, we offer maintenance and repair services. Planer’s chiller models support remote monitoring thanks to its GSM infrastructure, and are capable of energy-efficient cooling which enables an environmentally small footprint, with no waste of water.

fMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
Functional MRI technique is a system that monitors brain functions second-by-second and detects changes associated with blood flow.
fMRI is used to map the locations of brain centers that run the brain functions (speech, movement, memory etc.) and functions in general. When a cognitive activity starts, the blood flow to that region slightly increases. This increase leads to a change in MRI signals coming from that part of the brain during the activity, and the MRI scan maps the neural activity in this region by imaging the change in blood flow.
fMRI captures significant data regarding the closeness of lesions to critical functions such as speaking, moving, sensing, or organizing. This is used for the planning of the treatment, surgery and radiation therapy.
As a pioneer in its sector, NordicNeuroLab products from hardware to software are used around the world. Link has been providing its products for years.
Starting with preventative maintenance through repair and helium supply, our services are tailored to your organisational needs
Link Medical Systems is the first independent service company to deliver customized service for your CT, MRI, PET/CT and other nuclear medicine systems. We offer cost-effective and flexible services in comparison with the OEMs who mostly tend to be less flexible. Our team consists of professional engineers and always at your service.
Our engineering team of experts’ extensive history in the field of service and maintenance has allowed us to offer prompt and affordable services for major MRI vendors’ equipment. We are devoted to meet our customers’ needs such as site planning, project implementation, installation, consultancy, liquid helium and transportation.
With its broad spare-part stock located in its head office, Link Medical Systems meets your spare-part requirements. You can expect replacement parts for your equipment at the earliest convenience alongside with the most affordable terms. For the parts that have to be brought from overseas, our special agreements with the leading global suppliers enable us to meet your needs at reasonable costs.
MRI systems generate a very large magnetic field using a superconducting magnet. This superconducting magnet consists of many coils which are bathed in liquid helium at -269,1 °C. The process of cooling magnets to low temperatures is called magnet cool down. The cooling The method of cooling magnets is determined after considering of magnet’s mass, material and the interiors. If there happens to be an inaccuracy throughout the process, you might experience failures which result in over consumption on liquid helium or even a damaged magnet.
Vacuuming is closely linked to the magnet cool down process. Because the -269,1 °C is insulated by a vacuum. There is a need for skilled manpower and the right equipment to perform vacuuming.
Beside the 20 year-long field experience, our staff gained procedural knowledge and skills through practice on all kinds of magnet models. As an expert on magnet cool down and on problems related to it; Link Medical Systems is one of the best companies in the world. We can provide you with the complete cool down and vacuuming services for all magnet brands and models.
Link provides hot or cold storage for MRIs at its 1,000 square meter warehouse. Cooled down magnets are monitored 24 hours. Daily check-ups are also covered, considering temperature and humidity.
- Providing MRI cold storage (by continuing helium cooling) as well as hot storage to keep your equipment safe and secure prior to installation
- CT scanners are stored also in a fully-protected environment
You might need a temporary storage space for your devices that are planned to be replaced, displaced or sold. We offer storage services individually designed to preserve your devices under best conditions and can deliver them to you any time you want.
