Market Overview

Reimbursement Issues Notwithstanding, Expanding Application Range to Boost MRI Markets

Eastern Europe is poised to be the market to tap into in the near future for 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. At the same time, market prospects will receive a boost from an expanding application range.

"Along with constant upgrades in Tesla strength, the number of applications of MRI is increasing from a research point of view," notes the analyst of this research. "Moreover, such applications are becoming commercially viable as well." For most applications, 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 scans is of considerable importance as it has one of the highest costs per procedure. "Medical practitioners, while willing to refer more patients for MRI scans, are deterred from doing so by the low reimbursement levels which are around $500 to $800," explains the analyst. "The MRI market is particularly vulnerable to fluctuations in reimbursement levels."

Moreover, regulatory agencies worldwide prohibit individuals with implantable cardiac devices from receiving MRI scans. This further threatens market expansion. Accordingly, cardiovascular MRI manufacturers should work towards the development of automated coil-changing systems. At the same time, they should focus on enhancing image-reconstruction techniques.

Promisingly, 3-Tesla systems are expected to grow better than projected a few years back as they do not have the inherent technical problems that they posed when first launched.
