Procurement Trends: MRI - February, 2017
January 31, 2017 | Procurement Trends
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems use strong electromagneticfields and radio-frequency radiation to produce computer generated images ofanatomic structures. Models can begrouped into three broad categories which differ by the field strength of themagnet: 3T scanners, 1.5T scanners, and open (1.2T or less) scanners. SELECTplus member interest in 1.5T scannersincreased from 60% in 2013 to 68% in 2016. There may be several possible explanations for this increase: 1.5Tsystems meet the routine imaging...
