Medical Imaging Power Supplies Overview
At Emerson Network Power - Embedded Power, our engineers have been designing and developing power supply products for use in medical imaging systems for over 35 years. Our products have helped pave the way for advancements in a wide variety of imaging applications, including ultrasound and X-ray machines, and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) systems.
- The global market for medical imaging equipment is predicted to be worth about $37 billion by 2015.
- The U.S. market for medical imaging equipment is predicted to be worth about $11.4 billion by 2012.
- MRI is the fastest growing sector, with a CAGR of 9.8%.
Given that designing modern high-efficiency ac-dc power supplies is a craft in itself, and that medical imaging systems have to undergo strict compliance testing, most designers nowadays elect to use standard commercially available medical power supplies, or seek the help of a specialist power supply company to create a customized unit. Using power supplies that are already pre-approved to the EN60601-1 safety standard helps medical imaging system manufacturers speed compliance testing of their own products, and minimizes the risk of them encountering unexpected development problems outside their own area of expertise, which might negatively impact launch targets.
