New Product Launches and Approval – The Ongoing Trend

High Cost of Contrast Media Injectors: Key Challenge to Growth

Contrast media injectors are a costly course of treatment. As such, medium- and small-sized hospitals need to give a second thought while having them under their umbrella. Plus, CT injectors’ cost ranges between US$30,000 and US$40,000 and MRI injectors range from US$35,000 to US$ 40,000. Accessories cost is not included herein. Only ample funding can allow these hospitals to go for contrast media injectors.

Besides, opting for IT-enabled contrast media injectors would add to the overheads as dedicated IT personnel need to be employed over here. These factors are bound to hamper the contrast media injectors market even in the long run.
