(Before It's News)

The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the specific market segment of the diagnostics market sector called medical imaging. Medical imaging can be categorized into nine main modalities: X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission tomography (SPECT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine (NM), mammography and fluoroscopy. Globally, X-ray is the most frequently used imaging procedure with about 108 million X-ray exams per year. MRI is second with 26 million examinations per year. PET, SPECT, CT and nuclear medicine rank third with 30 million examinations per year. Picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and contrast agents are the sub-segments in medical imaging market that have gained significant growth in recent years. As a result of these medical imaging advancements, the multi-slice systems are generating large volumes of data, and this creates demand for data storage, 3-D visualization and analysis. As such, the global medical imaging industry is primed to experience significant growth through the next decade. This report surveys almost all of the companies known to be marketing, manufacturing or developing medical imaging equipment and supplies in the world. Each company is discussed in extensive depth with a section on its history, product line, business and marketing analysis, and a subjective commentary of the company’s market position. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and marketshare data are also included.
