LBN Medical is headquartered in Aalborg, Denmark, and is a leading international distributor of used diagnostic imaging equipment from leading manufacturers, including Canon, GE, Hologic, Siemens and Philips. The company buys and refurbishes CT, MRI, X-ray and ultrasound scanners and resells both complete systems and spare parts to customers in the medical industry around the world.
DirectMed specialises in selling spare parts and components for diagnostic imaging equipment and is the largest company in the world within its area of expertise.
