Global Computed Radiography and Digital Radiography Market 2015-2019
About computed radiography and digital radiography
Computed radiography and digital radiography are imaging techniques that use electromagnetic radiations, such as X-rays. Computed radiography is similar to conventional radiography; however, it uses imaging plates made of photostimulable phosphor instead of films. Computed radiography and digital radiography are preferred over conventional radiography because they require lesser processing time, do not require chemical processing, and are able to produce high-quality digital images.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global computed radiography and digital radiography market to grow at a CAGR of 5.19% over the period 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Compute Radiography and Digital Radiography Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Compute Radiography and Digital Radiography Market: Agfa-Gevaert Group, Fujifilm HIlding, General Electric, Koninklijke Philips and Siemens
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: All Star X-ray, Allengers Medical Systems, Canon, Carestream Health, Esaote, EuroTeck Systems, Hitachi Medical, Hologic, Jones X-Ray, Konica, Multi Imager Service, Samsung Healthcare, Shimadzu, Skanray Healthcare and Toshiba Medical Systems
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A flat-panel digital radiography systems is easy to use and provides high-quality image capture. The system also covers a wider area of the body and helps to increase the diagnosis processing period, i.e. within 3-6 seconds. The system can be integrated with X-ray devices for rapid diagnosis of the affected area, leading to faster treatment. These factors increase the use of the system in healthcare settings for efficient and rapid diagnosis, particularly among radiologists.”
According to the report, improved image quality helps make rapid diagnosis, resulting in faster decision making and treatment. Computed radiography and digital radiography systems provide rapid, improved quality images compared to conventional radiography devices. Most systems are equipped with advanced medical imaging technologies. For example, the CR 10-X tool by Agfa HealthCare technology uses MUSICA imaging process to separately analyze data of the soft tissues and bones and provide improved quality and detailed image. SYNAPSE 3D is another imaging tool that uses the latest compression technology to access large files and provides on-demand compression. It allows distribution of a large amount of image information that helps in accurate and rapid disease diagnosis.
Further, the report states that the installation cost of computed radiography and digital radiography systems is high.
