Imaging is defined as radiological production of a clinical image using X-rays, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance, radionuclide scanning, thermography, etc.; especially, cross-sectional imaging, such as ultrasonography, CT or MRI.

From the very basic x-ray equipment, to more complex MRI and nuclear medicine applications: all imaging medical equipment parts must be quickly and easily accessible for maintenance and upgrading. Medical imaging professionals know the importance of maintaining and upgrading their imaging devices on a regular basis, to stay on top of the latest imaging technologies, so they can best diagnose and treat their patients. In the past, hospitals and imaging centers were more likely to purchase new equipment, but due to budget cuts and other financial issues related to the economic recession, they are more likely to seek out replacement medical equipment parts. This situation has encouraged the growth of medical equipment parts services. As a matter of fact, the worldwide market for medical equipment parts and services in the imaging field alone is forecast to reach $11.6 billion by the year 2015.

Refurbished imaging equipment recorded record-breaking increases in several parts of the world, including the US and Europe. Purchasing of used systems and medical equipment parts or refurbishing existing machines has become a common practice in the US and Europe. Existing systems are updated and used medical equipment parts employed to address the growing demand for imaging procedures.
