MRI Systems Market to Surpass USD 6 Billion by 2018, Forecasts GBI Research
04 Apr 2013 • by Natalie Aster
The global Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems market is expected to exceed $6 billion by 2018 and future growth will be driven by technological advances in MRI systems, an increasing number of applications and the advent of MRI-compatible pacemakers. Technological advances include Superconducting (SC) magnets, open architecture and high-field MRI. These advances provide benefits such as enhanced image quality, cost savings in power consumption, and better patient comfort.
Fusion technologies are expected to drive the long-term growth of the MRI systems market. One example is MRI/PET. MRI systems produce morphological and functional images while Positron Emission Tomography (PET) produces images of increased metabolic activity in diseased tissues. MRI/PET combines these advantages, which was previously difficult due to the heavy magnetic field and lack of space in MRI systems. Siemens Healthcare's Biograph mMR became the first ever fully integrated MRI/PET device to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). MRI/PET examination takes an acquisition time of 30 minutes compared to 1.5 hours for sequential MRI and PET examinations. This shorter examination time reduces costs and also minimizes the dose of radioactive material. This is expected to increase future demand for such MRI systems..
