Frost & Sullivan Honors Siemens for MR Market Leadership

April 2, 2008 – Siemens Healthcare has been awarded Frost & Sullivan’s 2009 North American Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanners Market Leadership Award.

According to Frost & Sullivan, Siemens has earned wide recognition among the MRI community as a company that delivers second-to-none technology and highly regarded customer support services. The success of its ultra-short, open-bore scanners and the ability to deliver actionable results to customers that lead to workflow and business improvement have powered Siemens to the number one spot in the MRI industry.

“The introduction of Siemens’ ultra-short, open-bore MRI technologies represents one of the latest imaging solutions to emerge and dominate the market in terms of performance and clinical value,” said Travis Chong, industry analyst for Frost & Sullivan. “Overall, the company continues to advance the field of MRI with the delivery of advanced MRI technologies that improve clinical workflow, reduce operational costs and enhance the patient experience.”

Siemens’ open-bore and ultra-short MRI scanners has demonstrated the ability to deliver high-quality, high-field diagnostic scans, while enhancing patient comfort, increasing image quality, and opening the door to new applications. Siemens’ MR scanners are designed to help reduce a patient’s anxiety and discomfort, enabling clinicians to expand care to otherwise hard-to-image patients, such as patients challenged because of pain and mobility, the elderly, as well as bariatric and claustrophobic patients
