What Is The Future Of Digital Radiology?

If you are a doctor or a medical professional (and really, if you work in the medical health field in any capacity at all), one thing you are probably going to want to make sure of is that you are keeping up with the absolute newest in technology and equipment – and of course, if you work with radiology in any capacity, you certainly understand that digital radiology is considered to be superior to photographic radiology, as it gives you the ability to use less radiation and less time to capture images of equal quality. At the same time, however – no matter whether you currently implement this form of radiology technology or not – you are also going to want to gain a clear understanding of exactly where this form of radiology currently stands, and where it is expected to go in the future.

Recently, Transparency Market Research put together and published a report entitled “Digital Radiology Market – Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis and Forecast, 2012 – 2018,” and according to the results of the study, the global radiology systems market that is currently estimated at $9.7 billion is expected to continue climbing through 2018, all the way to an expected $13.3 billion!

Further results of the study revealed that North America – which currently maintains the international lead with roughly 41.9% of the global digital radiology market revenue share – is expected to maintain its lead in this area, with Europe expected to remain in second place. As for volume, the total, global digital radiology market is projected to reach 158.2 thousand units by the year 2018!

The study released by Transparency Market Research also took a closer look at exactly why this form of radiology has grown to the place where it currently stands, and why it is projected to continue expanding; among the reasons are the facts that many radiology departments find themselves in a position where they are facing issues with storing, archiving, and retrieving large volumes of images and data – a problem compounded by the use of traditional films, and solved by the use of digital radiology imaging. Moreover, fast and secure transmissions of data continues to become increasingly more important, and as such, digital radiology provides another key advantage. Eventually, in fact, it is believed that digital radiology will become an integral component of every radiology department worldwide.

Particularly because of the superior and accurate image capture and reduced radiation exposure for workers and patients alike that are all achieved through the use of digital radiology – not to mention the increased flexibility in image management – digital radiology is truly in a position to continue climbing upward, until it is even more widely used, and can therefore continue to put medical professionals in the best possible position for success!
