French MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) market will take time to recover:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The price of MRI systems in France is 12-15% below the world average, according to the French industry association, SNITEM. The reason for this is the traditional low investment in this area, which has increased competition and forced down prices. " Brazil and Mexico are more attractive markets than France," believes Andre Guinet, of Philips Medical Systems (France). The government's recent decision to authorise a 50% increase in the provision of MRI systems in France has been welcomed by industry, but many believe this is not enough. "It will be mid-2002 before the majority of these systems are operational given the long delay between the announcement of this decision and the effective installation," Mr Guinet said.
