MediPoint: Diagnostic X-ray Imaging - US Analysis and Market Forecasts


An early diagnosis of disease is the foundation for increasing survival rates. Diagnostic X-ray imaging is the most widely used technique to achieve early detection and clinical assessment of adult and pediatric patients alike, making it a cornerstone of disease control. This report provides an analysis of the diagnostic X-ray imaging market in the US, the 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), and some of the Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions (Australia, China, India, and Japan), and identifies the unmet needs in this diagnostic X-ray systems market. This report also discusses physician attitudes towards the utilization and perception of different types of X-ray imaging techniques, and the future of diagnostic X-ray imaging in the face of rapid technological advancements and other advanced imaging modalities.

The market share of the companies operating within the diagnostic X-ray imaging market in the US in terms of revenue in 2012. While factors such as reimbursement are currently not a challenge in the US for diagnostic X-ray imaging when used in its proper indications, KOLs interviewed for this report indicated that due to lower physician fees for diagnostic X-ray imaging compared with other imaging techniques, such as MRI and CT, physicians have less of a monetary incentive to perform this test compared with the other procedures.
