Global Information Inc. announces the addition of a new market research report "Teleradiology Market (X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI and Nuclear Imaging) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" at GIIResearch.com
Teleradiology refers to the electronic transmission of radiological images from one location to another in a digital format via internet technology. Image transfer is carried out from the primary acquisition site (sender's end) to a secondary location (receiver's end) for the purpose of either official diagnosis or consultation. Consistent developments in digital imaging technology coupled with fewer radiologists across the globe favor the growth and acceptance of teleradiology technologies and services. Also, in addition, increasing acceptance of internet technology and social media platforms will further augment the diffusion of teleradiology practices worldwide. Continuous upgradation of Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and Radiology Information Systems (RIS), has enhanced the overall teleradiology process (right from image capture, storage, processing and reporting).
This report encompasses a detailed study of various imaging modalities such as X-ray, ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and nuclear imaging. X-ray teleradiology promises lucrative business opportunities owing to its increased awareness, increasing digitalization that aids in enhancing the teleradiology process and low costs as compared to other modalities. Ultrasound is one of the typical imaging technologies, most popular in diagnosing women's ailments and is employed majorly to visualize and track development stages of the fetus during pregnancy. Ultrasound imaging technology is more advantageous than x-rays and MRI due to its minimal invasive nature coupled with lower exposure to radiation. Diffusion of CT scan imaging technology is increasing as it enables detailed visualization and diagnosis of abnormalities of the chest, abdomen, liver, pancreas and others. With the increasing number of healthcare institutions equipped with CT scanners, the feasibility and accessibility to radiologic interpretation is also increasing. MRI imaging technology involves high costs of equipment, and small to medium healthcare institutions cannot afford the installation and maintenance of MRI equipments. Owing to these factors, MRI teleradiology is still in its infancy stages. Similarly, the acceptance of nuclear imaging technology is still at a nascent stage due to high costs and lack of technical expertise. However, with the increasing government funding towards development of nuclear imaging technologies, there is a scope for increased acceptance of nuclear imaging teleradiology.
The report analyzes the teleradiology market by four major geographies namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). The market for each geography has been further studied based on various modality trends such as X-ray, ultrasound, CT, MRI and nuclear imaging.
