MRI-Helium-Use

In recent years, helium has become more scarce and, therefore, expensive. Meanwhile, the race has been on among magnet manufacturers to dramatically reduce or even eliminate helium “burn” or “boil off” in an MRI. Fortunately, there have been a number of successes in that endeavor. But, just because the technology exists to bring helium consumption levels to all-time lows doesn't mean that most systems in the field today operate at that level. 

The following is a breakdown of typical helium loss rates among popular MRI models; some long-standing workhorses, others just beginning their years of service to patients in the field.

We recently shared in another blog article how much it costs to rent a mobile MRI machine. Naturally, this begged the question from a number of people, "How much does it cost to buy a mobile MRI machine?" We'll answer that today.

The US mobile market is both cyclical and nuanced. In the early 2000’s, mobile route providers were growing like crazy and the supply couldn’t keep up with the demand. From 2007-2015, as many care providers brought MRI in-house, the mobile supply outweighed the demand and market pricing fell.
