United States MRI Market:2015-2020 Analysis And Forecasts

  • The objective of this report is to examine the United States MRI market.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology as a procedure of choice for visualization of soft tissue.
  • MRI, which started with the development of the key imaging principles in the 1970s, has rapidly become a major imaging tool, both in clinical diagnostics and medical research.
  • Continuous improvements in image quality brought about by technological advances in hardware, including magnets, coupled with novel imaging techniques and MR applications, have yielded an unprecedented noninvasive insight into the structures of soft tissues, functional responses and real-time dynamic images, and enabled radical changes in modern diagnostics and treatment.
  • The MRI industry has shaped its volume production offerings in response to the needs of the clinical diagnostics market.
  • The highly competitive commercial environment has maintained an emphasis on cost-effective solutions; and key technologies have by now been developed and established by each manufacturer.
  • Many novel ideas are being introduced through research concepts and prototypes, but each new technology or advanced concept has to clear the high threshold of acceptance of a cost-conscious commercial market.
