During last couple of decades, there has been an increase in chronic conditions and lifestyle diseases. This had led to an increase in demand for healthcare. Heart disease, diabetes and musculoskeletal diseases require long term care and attention. In the past few years, diseases that need surgery are being closely looked at so that they can be noninvasive and post-surgical care can be made better resulting in less complications and recovery time. As stays at hospitals are time and resource consuming, a reduced stay ensures care to more patients and quicker recovery for the ones at home.
Health care industry is being hugely impacted by medical technology which improves diagnosis, ensuring effective and timely monitoring those results in reduced hospitalizations and better care. Home monitoring has made patient recovery extremely comfortable in their own homes without compromising their health. In the healthcare industry diagnostic imaging systems are important as they are extensively made use of in clinical purposes. Medical imaging or diagnostic imaging is a technique made use of to take images of body or body parts to ensure that doctors can make a correct diagnosis. The healthcare industry has been revolutionized by the medical imaging technology. The New England Journal of Medicine Medical says that in the last 1,000 years, imaging is an important medical advancement.
Medical imaging is popular in developed nations. Its use is increasing in developing markets of India, Brazil and China, which are predicted to be the fast growing markets. The reason is increase in government expenditure on modernization, healthcare and a growth in number of healthcare and hospital centers. Disease profiles keep on changing in these countries and more people are contracting lifestyle diseases hence there is increasing demand for better care.
