LONDON, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the new report "Global Mobile Imaging & Cath Lab Services Market Assessment & Forecast: 2016 - 2020" by SA-Business Research & Consulting Group, MRI leads the mobile imaging services market by value amongst all imaging modalities, and accounted for 36.7% of the market share in 2015. Mobile MRI is also expected to be the fastest growing segment with CAGR of 2.62% from 2016 to 2020.
Magnetic resonance imaging is one of the most widely used imaging technologies for various medical specialties. Approximately 65-75 million MRI procedures are performed each year. Although MRI provides high resolution and detailed images of internal organs which are vital in disease diagnosis and progression studies, it has certain drawbacks. Patients with implants or tattoos with magnetic ink cannot use MRI imaging services. Although profitable monetarily for hospitals, hiring a mobile MRI requires significant planning and understanding of dimensions of MRI trailer and road accessibility. Sufficient parking space must be available for long MRI trucks and trailers.
This market research study by SA-BRC also focuses on several other mobile diagnostic modalities such as computed tomography, mammography, x-ray, ultrasound, cone beam CT and Cath Lab services among others. Mobile diagnostic services are provided through automobile platforms such as trucks and large vans. Mobile imaging service providers have been aptly addressing these issues for healthcare service providers. Imaging devices installed in trucks and trailers can travel to hospitals or other locations in the community to offer flexible diagnostic services.
