Medical Imaging Markets (X-Ray, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, PET, SPECT, Others)
Medical imaging’s contributions to medical practice has made it an ever-growing industry with new technologies constantly being launched. Early and more accurate diagnoses are made possible via imaging scans, which in turn may lead to optimized treatment regimens. The Medical Imaging Markets report reviews current and potential world opportunities for medical imaging systems, which include x-ray, mammography, fluoroscopy, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, PET and SPECT, and fusion systems. This study forecasts in general future growth to 2018. Business segments that are discussed include the world, US, European, BRIC, and Japanese industries.
Significant trends in the medical imaging systems industry include movement toward:
Replacement of Analog Systems
Opportunities in Emerging Nations
The evolvement of medical imaging modalities – x-rays, mammographies, CT scans, MRIs, SPECT and PET scans – has had a very significant influence on the diagnosis and then treatment of disease. Highly detailed imaging is enabling healthcare givers to view disease processes in new ways, especially at the molecular level.
The report's analysis subsumes these imaging industries:
SPECT-Gamma Camera Systems
The report gives current industry size for each of these modalities, based on sales to manufacturers of imaging systems used for molecular procedures, as well as forecasts of future sales. The nature and direction of research and trends is also discussed in this report, which gives insight into challenges facing manufacturers and vendors. This study provides portraits of several competitors, including large firms that have in the field made names for themselves, as well as smaller companies that fill industry niches. All these firms are involved in developing and marketing such medical imaging systems.
The use of medical imaging technologies for molecular medical applications is one of the most dynamic applications of the imaging industry. Interest in and use of the technology has greatly expanded in recent years, due to advances in cell biology, biochemical agents, and computer analysis. Serious industry professionals in medical imaging market, as well as those serving or investing in medical imaging firms, will want to keep informed with respect these develeopments.
