A few weeks ago we had the great pleasure of welcoming many of our fantastic partners to Planmed headquarters to learn all about Planmed’s latest news regarding products, sales, and marketing. The three-day training was held in Helsinki 25–27 April.
Product presentations and workshops
The three-day training started with welcome words from Planmed’s Managing Director Mr. Jan Moed and a factory tour. The training continued with presentations. We got to enjoy digital flat panel detector and power supply themed presentation by Product Development Director, Leo Aspelund, and Product Development Manager, Electronics, Jyri Pennanen. Product Manager for Planmed mammography products, Jukka Erkkilä, held a presentation on the features and upcoming developments of Planmed Clarity™ digital mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) systems. We also had the pleasure of hearing what Planmed’s Medical Advisor, Dr. Mikko Jousi from Päijät-Häme Central Hospital, had to say about digital breast tomosynthesis and what it means for breast imaging and diagnostics.
In addition to presentations the training included some hands-on workshops with Planmed Clarity and a review station with demo images. Dr. Mikko Jousi led an exceptionally informative image reading session, and Planmed’s Clinical Application Specialist, Saara Muhli, showed the group how to use Planmed Clarity with different settings to suit different patient and imaging needs.
“We really wanted to emphasize the importance of ergonomics and design details when performing a patient-friendly and accurate mammography examination. I was pleased to see how eager everyone was to try out the Planmed Clarity system and its features to truly understand their benefits,” Muhli describes.
In the workshop we got to experience Planmed Clarity’s flexible new image setting, which is a great example of the outstanding performance of the system. Planmed Clarity is now one of the most flexible mammography systems on the market. It is possible to adjust contrast, brightness, and sharpness levels of the system to produce a native image look that all the users are comfortable with, so that they can make the best possible diagnosis.

On the final day of the training we got to hear about the latest software innovations from Planmeca, such as surgery planning and implant design in the Planmeca Romexis® software. Planmed’s Product Manager for CBCT, Juhamatti Malm, also gave an excellent presentation on our innovative Planmed Verity® extremity scanner. Planmed Verity has been arousing a lot of interest lately further strengthening Planmed’s position as the leading company for orthopedic CBCT imaging.
Sales sessions and collaboration
In addition to product information, sales work and its challenges and how to overcome them were another important topic during the training. In our inspiring sales sessions we got to exchange views and experiences from different parts of the world. These sessions were a great example of the value and importance of collaboration between Planmed partners globally. It was very eye-opening to all of us, and gave us new goals to work towards.
In the spirit of interaction and collaboration we also got to enjoy a real Finnish experience at the breathtaking Harbo Lounge by the seaside in Helsinki. We plunged into the cold water and then warmed up in the sauna in beautiful surroundings.
This year’s training was a remarkable event with great interaction between Planmed partners and the Planmed team. We hope everyone who attended enjoyed the training and got a lot of useful information. We have already witnessed some great new actions on many markets inspired by this spring training, and we hope to see more!
We are looking forward to future trainings and collaboration!
