The red-hot MRI market got a boost from the U.S. military last month after the Department of Defense's purchasing agency issued an award to six vendors for the acquisition of MRI equipment over the next year. The Defense Support Center Philadelphia named GE, Picker, Siemens, Philips, Toshiba, and Lunar as the companies that are eligible to compete for contracts each time an order comes in to the DSCP for an MRI system or accessory. The DOD estimates that it will spend about $40 million on MRI technology over the next year, an amount that will be split among the six companies. The award comes with an option to extend the contract over the next four years, according to a DSCP spokesperson.
