The Diagnostic Imaging Devices Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% from 2021-2028. The report states that the market is driven by the increasing number of patients suffering from various ailments such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The technological advancements in imaging devices have also contributed towards the growth of this market.
Diagnostic imaging devices are that medical equipment that captures and record images of the human body for diagnostic purposes. These include X-rays, ultrasound systems, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scanners, nuclear imaging systems, and others. The most common device used is a CT scanner or x-ray machine because they can quickly produce multiple images in one scan while MRI requires more time to perform an entire scan. Another type of biomedical imaging technique is optical coherence tomography that captures light waves instead of capturing images with electromagnetic radiation such as gamma rays or x-rays from other types of sources like lasers.
On the basis of type, the global diagnostic imaging devices market is segmented into X-ray, ultrasound system, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scanner, nuclear imaging systems, and others.
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, like visible light. X-ray photons have an extremely short wavelength and the energy levels can be very high. This makes them suitable for penetrating most materials including skin tissue to expose bones or other internal structures such as heart valves, blood vessels, etc., and provide detailed images of these features. An x-ray machine is also called an imaging device because it creates and uses waves in order to produce clinical radiographs (images). Most diagnostic imaging devices use various types of ionizing radiation which means they emit electrically charged particles that damage DNA within cells if enough exposures occur.
An ultrasound system is a diagnostic imaging device that uses ultrasound waves to get images of the inside of various body parts and organs, such as the breast. It can be used to measure blood flow in arteries or veins, diagnose pregnancy-related problems (such as fetal heart rate) and evaluate abnormalities such as tumors. The process starts when soundwaves are transmitted into the patient's skin from an external transducer that bounces off tissues, bone or fluids within specific areas of interest in order to create echoes; these echoes are then picked up by another set of sensors on the same machine called "receive-"transducers". The signals received are sent back through wires to a computer where they're processed using special software that creates two-dimensional images of the body.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), also known as nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, is a medical diagnostic technique that uses magnetism, radio waves, and computer technology to produce detailed images of the body's internal organs and structures. MRI scans use strong magnetic fields to align nuclei atoms in organic molecules within cells so they emit signals from which physicians can diagnose diseases or evaluate tissue damage.
Computed tomography (CT), also known as a CT scan, is an imaging method that uses x-rays in combination with computing to produce cross-sectional images. A computer processes the data from multiple rotation angles around a single axis of rotation and produces slices. The raw information has no recognizable appearance so it must undergo some interpretation before its significance can be interpreted by humans or medical equipment. This process could involve algorithms such as maximum intensity projection, which takes all of the available pixels on each image and projects them onto one slice for easier viewing. The dimensionality of this dataset sets itself apart from other types of scans because there are many more variables at play than just two spatial dimensions; namely: time and rotational.
Nuclear imaging systems are used to acquire a large amount of data from the patient. The system can be used to identify any abnormalities without using radiation, such as CT scans, and MRI images. Nuclear imaging is also not invasive which makes it more reliable for patients with claustrophobia or upper body injuries. There are two types of nuclear imaging: Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET). SPECT typically uses gamma rays that emit beams in all directions but only measures the signals coming back from one point on the body at a time while PET uses low-energy photons that randomly bounce around inside the human body until they collide with an atom resulting in its release of detectable energy particles called positrons. Nuclear imaging systems provide high-quality anatomical detail by using radioactive isotopes that emit detectable energy particles called photons.
On the basis of application, the global diagnostic imaging devices market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, diagnostic centers, and others.
Diagnostic imaging devices are used primarily in hospitals. These devices can be found throughout the hospital, and many of them are located right outside operating rooms to allow doctors to assess patients before they enter surgery. Some diagnostic imaging equipment is also available for emergency purposes at other locations within a hospital such as an intensive care unit or burn center. They may also be found on-site within outpatient facilities that offer surgical services like walk-in clinics or urgent care centers if their primary function is not a medical diagnosis but rather injury repair without general anesthesia, which would use fewer resources than performing these treatments inside the hospital proper where there are specialized staff members who could attend to injuries with greater expertise and without disrupting regular patient intake schedules.
In ambulatory surgical centers, diagnostic imaging devices are used to diagnose and provide information about the patient's condition. These systems can be attached or integrated into a variety of other pieces of equipment such as ultrasound scanners, CT/PET (positron emission tomography) scanning units, mammographic units, and MRI machines that use high-powered magnetic fields for additional visualization in medical procedures. They also allow doctors to have more accurate diagnoses through clearer images that depict detailed data on tissue density, muscle thickness, and bone structure among others.
Diagnostic centers use imaging devices to develop a diagnosis or prognosis of their patients, for example, in order to determine what treatment should be given and if there are any complications.
On the basis of region, the global diagnostic imaging devices market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North American region dominated the global revenue share in 2017 with a 41% contribution to the total market size followed by Europe at 34%.
The main growth factor for the global diagnostics devices market is increasing investments in hospitals and health care facilities. Increased adoption rates of new technologies such as high-resolution CT scanners coupled with rising prevalence rates of chronic diseases will also drive demand for diagnostic equipment globally during the forecast period (2021–2028). In addition, growing government initiatives aimed towards improving healthcare infrastructure across developing economies have created a conducive environment for rapid expansion within this sector over recent years.
