Market Assessment of Respiratory Diagnostics in the United States and Europe

Market Assessment of Respiratory Diagnostics in the United States and Europe

New technology and applications continue to counter downward economic pressures.

Computed tomography (CT): Lung disease imaging contributes to 􂀀 to 􂀀% of the total CT scan procedures.

oA CT scan is recommended for smokers over the age of 􂀀 (approximately 􂀀 million of the total 􂀀 million smokers), and 􂀀 million CT scans have been performed on people under the age of 􂀀 in the United States.

The United States is the dominant region, with 􂀀 million lung-specific CT scans carried out every year; however, radiation exposure is a significant drawback of CT.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): Across geographies, the role of MRI for lung disease imaging is limited. Longer procedural time and a lack of precision to image a moving organ such as the lungs hamper the use of this type of imaging.

Positron emission tomography (PET): This procedure is considered an alternative option for staging lung cancer, and it reduces radiation exposure when compared to CT. However, the high cost of equipment and the average cost of each scan is significantly high, which limits adoption in European countries as healthcare services are heavily subsidized.

Healthcare service providers embrace radiation dose reduction technologies, reconstruction software, limited scan time, precise imaging of moving organs, and cost-effective products.

The increasing incidences of lung disease across geographies provide a potential opportunity for technologies that satisfy the unmet needs in the current imaging modalities.
