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 report covers the CR and DR market in the US landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

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.Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in this market is the intense competition among the vendors in the US. This intense competition is resulting in increased pricing pressure, thus affecting the profit margins of major companies operating in the market.

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are Canon USA Inc., Del Medical Inc., GE Healthcare Ltd., iCRco Inc., and Radlink Inc.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
