Special report: MRI innovations are more personalized than ever

The technology can also be used to deliver drugs directly to a tumor rather than intravenously, which many doctors believe helps the prognosis.

A global approach
As technology continues to expand and facilities in the U.S. deal with reimbursement challenges, elsewhere in the world, cash-strapped hospitals struggle to provide basic technologies to needy populations.

United Imaging: New 80-slice CT in 2 weeks w/Software Upgrades for Life

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.

Even in Central and Eastern Europe, a region that has enjoyed a steadily improving economy, MRI purchasing has been slow.

“MRI is still a much demanded technology — the number of MRI units across CEE is insufficient, compared to Western Europe and the U.S.,” says Dominika Grzywinska, health care industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “For example, there are six MRI units per million people in Poland, compared to 53 in France.”

In total, North America holds on to 40 percent of the MR market, according to MarketsandMarkets. The report predicts a 5.2 percent growth in Asia from 2013 to 2018.

To help developing nations transition into using the technology, GE has created technologies that make MR systems easier to use by including automated protocols, while also improving training and reducing total cost of ownership for customers in rural areas.

“For rural China or Brazil, the system needs to be very robust,
easy to install, and you need to be able to do it with less-educated personnel,” says GE’s Hausmann. “Having automation translates our intrinsic wisdom into the systems and multiplies that all over the world.”

Hopefully, these advanced technologies will soon be available to any patient in need worldwide.
