U.S. MARKETS FOR COMPUTER-AIDED DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING PRODUCTS

264 Pages | 63 Exhibits | 2005 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2009

OVERVIEW:
In 2004, the worldwide computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) imaging products market was valued at $15 billion; in the same year, the U.S. CAD imaging products market was estimated at $7 billion. This market is evolving rapidly due to the emergence of new, computer-based applications that are poised to impact nearly every aspect of medical practice. In radiology, new computer-based imaging systems can identify anatomic and pathologic structures, visualize these structures in three and four dimensions, and transmit images of the structures to other locations for professional review or filmless storage and archiving.

This report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, technologies, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in the U.S. computer-aided diagnostic imaging products market.

Topics discussed in this report include computed tomography, diagnostic ultrasound, lung screening, magnetic resonance imaging, mammography, nuclear medicine imaging, picture archiving and communication systems, three-dimensional medical imaging, and X-ray imaging.
