Widening Application Range to Boost MRI Markets in Eastern Europe, Says Frost & Sullivan
Date:10/13/2009

LONDON, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastern Europe is poised to be the market to tap into in the near future for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) manufacturers. These countries have budgets allocated to improve their healthcare systems after becoming members of the European Union (EU). Their installed base of MRI systems is not large, which directly makes this region conducive for market growth.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.medicalimaging.frost.com), Western and Eastern European Markets for MRI, finds that the market earned revenues of $858.2 million in 2008 and estimates this to reach $996.3 million in 2012. The market sectors covered in this research include cardiovascular MRI, breast MRI, functional MRI, interventional MRI, contrast-enhanced MRI, spinal MRI and musculoskeletal MRI.

"Along with constant upgrades in Tesla strength, the number of applications of MRI is increasing from a research point of view," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Gideon Praveen Kumar. "Moreover, such applications are becoming commercially viable as well."

For most applications, a 1.5 Tesla system, coupled with the use of CAD, will suffice. 3-Tesla systems provide a higher resolution of images, which can prove to be important, especially for more sophisticated clinical applications. MRI scanning has also been used for ophthalmic and other sensory applications, making this a preferred route for dedicated MRI vendors.

However, reimbursement remains an industry-wide constraint for the medical imaging industry. Reimbursement for MRI sc
