The magnetic resonance imaging market is projected to reach US$ 7,955.1 million by 2025 from US$ 5,913.6 million in 2017; it is expected to register a CAGR of 3.8% from 2018 to 2025.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a scan which utilizes strong magnetic fields and radio waves for producing detailed images of the inside of the body. The MRI scanner is a large tube that contains powerful magnets, the patient lies inside the tube during the scan. The radio waves manipulate the magnetic position of the atoms of the body, which are picked up by a powerful antenna and sent to a computer. The computer performs calculations, which produces clear, cross-sectional black-and-white images of the body. An MRI scan can be used to examine almost any part of the body, which include brain and spinal cord, bones and joints, breasts, heart and blood vessels, internal organs, such as the liver, womb or prostate gland, and others.

The report offers insights and in-depth analysis of the magnetic resonance imaging market emphasizing on various parameters such as market trends, technological advancements, market dynamics, and competitive landscape analysis of leading market players across the world. It also includes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the market across all the regions. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the socioeconomic conditions of various countries across the world. Most healthcare providers prefer imaging over the other COVID-19 screening techniques because it offers a primary diagnosis in a short amount of time. COVID-19 and its effect on distinct patients in each demography have been studied using all imaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging.
