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. For most facilities, the days of "prestige buying" are long gone, and new value-based purchasing initiatives have patients shopping MRI providers from a much more holistic perspective than simply seeking the latest and greatest from the top OEMs.

Amid the pressure, however, there is some good news for facilities that own and operate GE MRI scanners: You may be able to upgrade your MRI capabilities without having to purchase an entirely new scanner. Below, we'll share with you how your GE MRI system could be upgraded to improve quality and meet demand with lower costs and less downtime.
