A new report from Orem Utah-based KLAS finds that providers most frequently mentioned magnetic resonance (MR) systems as a planned purchase over the next 24 months, followed by ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), digital mammography, and then digital x-ray (DR).

In the CT market, GE maintains the lead in mindshare, with 68 percent of providers planning to include the vendor in their purchase decisions, the report notes, adding that the next most-considered vendor was Siemens, followed by Toshiba and Philips.

KLAS says that while GE, Siemens and Philips remain the top three vendors in provider mindshare in DR, Carestream is also turning heads with the introduction of its DRX-1 product, a cassette-sized wireless detector.

Taken together, GE, Siemens and Philips garnered the most mentions from providers across the six market segments highlighted, maintaining the “Big 3” of imaging equipment status that has earned all three companies significant loyalty among providers, says KLAS.
