Refurbished Medical Imaging Equipment - Growing Business During Lean Economy - Upcoming Frost & Sullivan Web Conference

Jun 01, 2010, 08:00 ET from Frost & Sullivan

LONDON, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In times of an economic downturn, the refurbished medical imaging equipment market experiences a substantial upswing in comparison to the turnover with new equipment. However, in different parts of Europe the demand for refurbished medical imaging systems varies just as much as the pricing dynamics across different tiers of vendors. While the development of new technologies in medical imaging can be a major driver for the refurbished medical imaging equipment market, it can also form a substantial challenge to market participants. The introduction of new technologies slows down decision-making processes at the customers' end, as they need to decide between new technological features and cost issues.


In its upcoming web conference taking place on Wednesday, 9th June 2010, at 3 p.m. GMT Frost & Sullivan will therefore focus on the Refurbished Medical Imaging Equipment Market in Europe. Senior Research Analyst, Gideon Praveenkumar, will present the different imaging modalities being refurbished in Europe, modalities such as Mammography, X-Ray Angiography, X-Ray Radiography, Positron Emission Tomography, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Ultrasound. At the same time, Mr. Praveenkumar will analyse the dynamics in different geographic regions in Europe.

You may also register to receive a recorded version of the briefing at anytime by submitting the aforementioned contact details.

This web conference will benefit all OEM refurbishers as well as 3rd party refurbishers spare parts providers and brokers, who are involved in the refurbished medical imaging equipment business in Europe.  It will help them understand the dynamics in different European countries. It will also help other companies who are planning to venture into this business which has a huge market potential during recession. OR as Mr. Praveenkumar put it: "For creators of expensive medical imaging systems, a makeover is perhaps more attractive than manufacturing during lean economic times."
