NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Radiography includes mammography, computed tomography, traditional x-ray and digital x-ray. These imaging procedures are affected by a number of factors: advances in technology, consumer expectations for healthcare, declining reimbursement and coverage of medical expenses by insurances companies and the aging of the population are among the factors driving these imaging markets.
This report, Medical Imaging Markets: X-Ray, Digital X-Ray, CT and Other Radiography Systems from Kalorama Information, details these these factors and provides market size and forecast for the following markets
Digital systems replace the conventional film cassette with an electronic receptor that directly converts the x-rays to digital images. Over the years, Kalorama Information analyst Joe Constance has tracked this trend of digital radiography. Digital technology enables x-ray modalities to detect problem sites more rapidly and with greater accuracy. These capabilities are helping fuel hospitals' transition from film-based systems to filmless environments. At the same time there are practical limiters to digital and areas where film-based systems will still be useful, and the report details these.
This report analyzes the current and potential world market for medical and dental x-ray systems. Various modalities that use x-rays to create images, such as fluoroscopy and CT, are included in the report. Also reviewed is the market for medical and dental x-ray film. This report emphasizes the current and future markets for these products. This report generally reviews the nature and direction of research, as well as future markets. It also profiles several companies involved in marketing medical and dental x-ray equipment, and medical and dental x-ray film.
