Frost & Sullivan: Replacement of Old Equipment Boosts Kenyan Medical Imaging Industry
Date:6/9/2009

notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Jolize Gerber. "Doctors and patients in Kenya are becoming more aware of the benefits of digital x-ray systems, hence placing a greater demand on authorities to upgrade hospitals' existing systems."

The Kenyan government launched an initiative in 2007 to replace old equipment and acquire new imaging technologies in public facilities. This initiative, together with increased training provided to radiologists in Kenya, will act as drivers in this sector.

Although traditional analogue radiography (AR) systems still account for a dominant share of the market, growth in the medium term is expected to be driven by high adoption rates of computed radiography (CR) systems in a move towards digitisation.

"Over the long term, Frost & Sullivan expects higher adoption of digital radiography (DR) systems, since this technology significantly lessens the waiting time for both patients and radiologists, and ensures a much lower repeat rate," adds Gerber. "We also anticipate an increased adoption of PACS integrated with DR systems, as this would help healthcare facilities to store and transfer digital images as well as allow an easy transition from analogue to digital."

Despite these developments, concerns about the effects of radiation caused by x-ray screening are growing in Kenya. These rising concerns are related to improved education and improved awareness about the effects of radiation as well as the increased cases of cancer detected in Kenya.

"Mounting concerns about the radiation effects derived from imaging devices such as x-rays are causing patients to hesitate about coming for repetitive scans," remarks Gerber.

Apprehensions about the effects of radiation can be alleviated by efforts to control x-ray use. This includes training of radiologists in dose reduction software and hardware. Doctors also need to be educated to re
