Based on type, the MRI systems market has been classified into fixed and mobile systems. In 2017, fixed systems generated revenue of $5,349.3 million in the MRI systems market. This can be mainly attributed to the high adoption of these imaging systems in hospitals and diagnostic centers.
The MRI systems market has also been categorized into high-field, very-high-field, low-to-mid-field, and ultra-high-field imaging systems. High-field systems generated the highest revenue in the MRI systems market during the historical period, with a contribution of $3,031.7 million in 2017. This can be mainly ascribed to the fact that a high-field imaging system has faster imaging capability as comparison to low-field-strength systems and is primarily used for the scanning of the abdomen and the chest.
