If you've owned or operated an MRI machine for even just a few years of the last decade, you know that the cost per liter of the liquid helium used to cool your magnet has risen, year-over-year, to record high levels. And, if you've seen the invoice for a helium fill from your gas provider, you know it's a tough pill to swallow. So what's to be done? Do we "grin and bear it" until prices (hopefully) come down? That's one way to handle it. Or, you could take some proactive steps to mitigate helium costs now.
Below, we'll share why the shortage is likely to continue, and how finding the right helium partner can lead to considerable savings and improved sustainability for your MRI services.
