DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/84thn8/cr_and_dr_market) has announced the addition of the "CR and DR Market in the US 2012-2016" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Computed Radiography (CR) and Digital Radiography (DR) market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 2.62 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in technological innovations. The CR and DR market in the US has also been witnessing an increasing use of CR in mammography. However, intense competition among vendors could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this space include Agfa HealthCare NV, Carestream Health Inc., Fujifilm Holdings Corp., Konica Minolta Holdings Inc., and Philips Healthcare Ltd.
The other vendors mentioned in the report are Canon U.S.A. Inc., Del Medical Inc., GE Healthcare Ltd., iCRco Inc., Radlink Inc., Shimadzu Corp., Siemens Healthcare, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc., and Viztek LLC.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: There has been an increase in the use of CR in the diagnosis of medical conditions in women, especially in mammography. Mammography is the examination of a human breast with the help of ionizing radiation for the early detection of breast cancer. The imaging of dense breast tissue or implants through CR produces high-quality digital images. High resolution, moderate productivity, and dose performance are essential for mammography, and they can be easily achieved through CR. Moreover, CR systems cost three times less than DR systems, so they are preferred to DR systems for carrying out mammography examinations.
According to the report, one of the key drivers in this market is the rapid technological developments in CR and DR systems, resulting in better images.
