The pressure in the MRI world has reached its peak. While reimbursements aren’t improving, the market still has a high demand for quality images and efficient output. Not just any magnet will suffice, and most insurance companies require MRI machines to be approved with the strict guidelines for image quality. With that comes the pressure. However, fortunately, you may just be able to upgrade your MRI machine’s capabilities without having to purchase a new one.
The following are a few details devised by Amber USA on how your MRI machine can be upgraded for meeting demands, improving the quality of images, and lowering downtime on the equipment.
Under the exterior lies the most crucial component of an MRI machine; that is the magnet used to generate the magnetic field for developing the images. If you are using an older MRI system, many facilities may be able to provide a field upgrade on your platform. This type of upgrade on your machine would be able to maintain the magnet and its cooling system while being able to improve the system in other ways.
While this doesn’t mean that upgrading your system wouldn’t need replacements, less hassle would be involved. The components that may be used in upgrading your current system may comprise:
• New coils.
• New gradient cabinets.
• New computer consoles.
• New RF systems.
Another upgrade process that may be utilized could include applications training. New hardware and software may sometimes be challenging to learn. Therefore applications training would be a great way to understand how to make use of these systems.
If you’re considering upgrading your MRI scanner or other radiology equipment, don’t hesitate to contact Amber USA for more information.
