Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Technologies and Global Markets

NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Technologies and Global Markets

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0298005/Medical-Magnetic-Resonance-Imaging-MRI-Technologies-and-Global-Markets.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Medical_Imaging

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The current report focuses on the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) portion of the overall imaging market. Within the imaging market, there are technologies such as ultrasound, fluoroscopy, X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, and positron emission tomography (PET) scans that provide significant competition to MRI imaging. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages based on visualization capabilities and costs.The analysis of the imaging market indicates that MRI scans constitute approximately 12% of the market, with less comprehensive tests such as ultrasound, fluoroscopy and X-rays capturing more than 50% of the market. Determining the influence of MRI on future health-care trends and the viability for market expansion in globally stringent reimbursement and regulatory environments are key reasons for conducting this market study.The goal of this study is to describe and discuss changes in the global MRI market, including the following objectives:• To describe the trends and developments for each type of MRI technology and how each is meant to satisfy the needs of customers. • To analyze market and driving forces to determine the market size for the technologies and pinpoint target applications. • To examine the MRI business in terms of specific companies and their position in the market.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

• Macro trends that benefit the MRI market includeo A globally aging population.o Continued global urbanization.o Prevalence of major diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.o Expanding access to health-care products and services, particularly in rural areas and for younger populations.• Negative global trends include: o Tightening medical insurance reimbursement policies. o Economic uncertainty throughout the world. o Reluctance to embrace new technologies. o Increasing competition from other imaging technologies.o Stricter governmental regulations.

This study will explore the keys to continued growth in this industry, including increasing sales in developing regions, expanded services, a strong pipeline of new products, and new applications for existing technologies.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This study of the competitive and evolving MRI industry will be beneficial to diagnostic industry participants holding marketing, management and technical development positions. It will also benefit readers who are suppliers to this industry. Additionally, investors, venture capitalists, insurance companies, and those interested in various aspects of the MRI industry will find this report valuable.
