Medical Imaging Markets --- Aarkstore Enterprise

Posted Nov 23 2010 5:53am

There will be a steady increase in demand for medical imaging services, along with pressures to improve the quality of healthcare delivered in the home and to lower its cost. The medical imaging segments are poised for a major new phase of growth fueled by the availability of new technology coming out of the computer and digital information technology segment, and the higher interest of individual older baby boom patients and general healthcare consumers to monitor health status. Continuous improvements in technology are resulting in a growing number of new imaging tests that combine high levels of accuracy with rapid, easy-to-use product formats. Digital mammography is driving more screening programs. The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the specific market segment of the diagnostics market sector called medical imaging. This sector includes all of the generally-accepted imaging activities that are currently used today, including X-ray and radiography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, gamma camera market, computed tomography (CT) scans and positron emission tomography (PET) scans. It examines these clinical measurement devices and their reagents and supplies as used in hospitals, clinics and doctor's offices. It also includes associated market segments like picture archiving and communications system (PACS) markets, cardiology imaging markets, three-dimensional (3D) imaging markets and other emerging technologies.
