DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kx6dpb/emerging) has announced the addition of the "Emerging Diagnostic Imaging Market - Devices (Nuclear Imaging Systems, 3D imaging, Tactile imaging, Tomography, Emerging Diagnostic Biomarkers, Wearable diagnostic devices), Global Industry Analysis, Growth, Trends, Forecast 2014-2020" report to their offering.
Diagnostic Imaging Technologies provide imagery feedback on a patient's physical condition, which is then used to diagnose, monitor or treat medical conditions, thus playing an important role in improving public health of all age groups. X-ray based examinations are crucial in all medical settings and are utilised at every level. While practicing preventive as well as curative medicine, effective medical decisions require precise diagnostics, which technological advancements have significantly enhanced. These technological advancements initially started out with simple X-rays but have now revolutionized medical care in terms of diagnostics.
Radiography, MRIs, CT scans, ultrasound, etc. have created a strong market in this field proving to be valuable and necessary investments are pouring in. Newer technologies have made diagnosis less invasive and more accurate, for example elastography tests the elasticity of organs, tactile sensing technology helps in minimum invasive surgery etc.
This market is one of the few markets that have seen strong growth in both developed, and developing countries with significant investments specifically from hospitals, all over the globe. Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance (MITA), a branch of National Electrical Manufacturing Association (NEMA) is a collective representation of this market's R&D developers, manufacturers and innovators. Data from developing countries over the years indicate that number of invasive surgeries could have been avoided, if simple diagnostic imaging had been accessible. The most evident challenge faced by this market is its high cost of usage, resulting in a substantial percentage of patients being unable to afford it. This discourages hospitals with limited budgets to invest in this technology. Lack of awareness in rural areas and unwillingness to trust technology also is a restraint for the overall growth of this market.
