GE MRI Upgrade.jpg

Competitive pressure in the world of MRI is at an all-time high. Reimbursements aren’t getting any better, yet the market demands high-quality images and efficient throughput. Not just any old magnet will do either. Most insurance payers require MRI scanners to be accredited through the American College of Radiology (ACR), which maintains strict guidelines for image quality.
