The advancement in imaging technology with hybrid MRI systems and emergence of 7T device have expected to emerge as one of the major trends in the MRI market. The government in both developed and developing countries has taken initiatives to support and leverage healthcare facilities.  Manufacturers are continuously focusing to expand their reach with integrated diagnostic model facilities to target patient-centric healthcare services with powerful and unique technology. This will further propel the growth owing to a broad classification of MRI systems in the market. MRI systems is considered as the best diagnostic tool in neuroscience research as 98% of the MRI scans are primarily performed for brain examination. Other neurology related diagnosis includes brain tumors, blood vessel malformation or hemorrhage, and vascular irregularities. It is also used to detect degenerative disorders such as multiple sclerosis. There are about 1 billion individuals, i.e. around 13.46% of the global population suffering from neurological disorders. Some of the most prevalent neurological disorders are stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, brain injuries, Alzheimer & Parkinson disease, and neuro-infections. More than 10% of the deaths worldwide are caused due to neurological disorders. As MRI diagnosis is non-invasive approach of diagnosis, MRI systems has gained high importance and is being recognized by many service providers leading to an increased adoption in the market.

Recently the diagnostic markets has witnessed a large volume of cancer cases and the diagnosis/detection nowadays is witnessing an increase with combination or hybrid imaging possibilities. The inclusion of MRI with PET or CT has gained popularity in the market. Other medical conditions such as uterine fibroids are diagnosed with hybrid imaging modality MRI along with ultrasound imaging under image guided technology.
