Despite significant growth in the global magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) market, a remarkable 70% of the world’s population still remains without MRI access, largely due to the prohibitive costs of traditional MRI machines. Now, a new advanced and affordable MRI scanner has the potential to revolutionize healthcare accessibility across the world and provide critical diagnostic capabilities to millions globally.

Voxelgrids (Bengaluru, India) has pioneered a cutting-edge MRI scanner that not only rivals its traditional counterparts in terms of quality but does so at a fraction of the price, addressing a long-standing accessibility issue for billions of people unable to afford MRI exams. This innovative MRI scanner priced at around USD 400,000, delivers savings up to USD 800,000 in comparison to conventional 1.5T whole-body scanners, which are usually available between USD 670,000 and USD 1.2 million. This dramatic price difference can significantly enhance global healthcare accessibility to MRI technology.

Furthermore, the Voxelgrids MRI scanner stands out due to its compactness and lighter weight, making it easier to transport and set up. This design is particularly beneficial for rural and hard-to-reach regions, which often face challenges accessing standard MRI facilities due to their substantial size and logistical requirements. The introduction of the Voxelgrids MRI scanner marks a transformative moment in medical imaging. It has the potential to level the playing field in MRI diagnostics, ensuring broader access to this critical technology. The Voxelgrids MRI scanner could be the key to availing MRI diagnostics for underserved communities around the world.

“Our revolutionary MRI scanner is a testament to our belief that cost should never be a barrier to critical healthcare services,” said Arjun Arunachalam, Founder and CEO, Voxelgrids. “The low-cost MRI scanner is set to transform the healthcare landscape, empowering healthcare providers to serve diverse communities and drive positive health outcomes globally. At Voxelgrids, we are on a relentless mission to make medical imaging affordable for all.”
