Global Closed MRI Systems Market to reach $ 4.28 billion by 2021

According to the report “Global Closed MRI Systems Market,” published by Market Data Forecast, the global market is projected to reach USD 4.28 billion by 2021 from USD 3.37 billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2016 to 2021.

Closed MRI’s have been around the longest and make use of a capsule-like space to take high quality images. The machine is actually a magnet the patient lies in, and a radio wave is used to send signals to the body and receive them back. The returning signals are converted into images by a computer attached to the scanner.  MRI scanners come in different magnet field strengths measured in teslas or “T”, usually between 0.5T and 3.0T. The results of these images are very detailed, allowing doctors to make an accurate diagnosis and craft a specific treatment plan for your condition. Because of the shape of the scan, it is able to take images of areas not available with any other scans, meaning that in some cases closed MRIs are absolutely necessary.

The drawbacks of the closed MRI lies specifically in the lack of comfort they afford the patient. The dimensions and shape of the scans are very small and encapsulated causing claustrophobia. The fact that it takes several minutes to take a full scan increases the risk of claustrophobia and panic attacks can develop in some cases. Movement inside the capsule ruins the images, so it is also crucial that the patient stay extremely still or risk having to repeat the scan. In addition, the narrow dimensions mean that large or obese patients are unable to fit in many traditional closed machines.

The problems patients have had with the closed scans has led engineers and scientists to develop wide-bore MRIs. Although still closed in the traditional sense, these MRI machines have larger internal dimensions decreasing the likelihood of panic attacks and claustrophobia inside the machines and allowing for larger patients to fit.

Global Closed MRI Systems market: Overview

Presently, MRI is the most commonly used non-invasive imaging modality for early diagnosis and screening of various diseases, such as multiple sclerosis (MS), dementia, breast cancer, prostate cancer, spinal tuberculosis, and Alzheimer. This will further improve the overall demand for closed MRI systems all around the world.

Furthermore, advancements in MRI techniques include superconducting (SC) magnets, open architecture, high-field MRI, and software applications. The advent of MRI-compatible pacemakers will significantly increase the number of patients eligible for MRI procedures. However, high cost of MRI systems, reduction in the availability of helium that could force hospitals to replace costly MRI magnets, and declining reimbursement rates for MRI procedures are factors restraining the growth of the closed MRI system market.
