This has helped in expansion of application of medical digital imaging in exploratory surgery.

U.S. Medical Digital Imaging System Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) enable determination of metabolic information of PET and anatomic detail of CT simultaneously. High-resolution CT offers images with higher spatial resolution. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is replacing older techniques such as CT, myelography, angiography, and arthrography.

In addition, advancements in digital imaging offer various clinical and economic benefits, such as instant access to radiology studies, lesser risk of data damage, and theft. Automation in procedures help in decreasing waiting time, thus, maximizing efficiency and returns on investment. These benefits help offset costs of equipment and infrastructure.

Type Insights

Computed tomography accounted for the largest share market share of 25.20% in 2022. Nuclear imaging is anticipated to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. Development of new radiotracers, increasing prevalence of cancers and cardiovascular diseases, and introduction of new products through advancements are working in favor of the overall market.

According to the American Cancer Society, 1,762,450 new cancer cases weere reported in the U.S. in 2019. Development of radiotracers, such as Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) with technetium 99m radiotracers, which optimizes image quality with reduced radiation exposure, is estimated to contribute to the growth of the CT segment during the forecast period.

Technology Insights

3D/4D technology captured the largest share of 76.20% in 2022. The 3D technology is expected to witness the highest adoption rate in developed as well as developing regions. 2D has been further divided into black and white (BnW) and color.

U.S. Medical Digital Imaging System Market share and size, 2022

Technological advancements in 3D/4D imaging technology help in accurate and efficient real-time visualization of human body, thereby minimizing distortion for patients. 4D imaging is 3D with real time movement. The global market for 3D and 4D devices is likely to experience lucrative growth in the forecast period owing to increasing adoption of these technologies such as fetal monitoring.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2022 with market share of 32.88% owing to high adoption of advanced technology and improved healthcare infrastructure, high purchasing power, and favorable reimbursement framework.

Medical Digital Imaging System Market Trends by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is poised to exhibit the highest CAGR with 10.3% during the forecast period, mainly due to increasing government incentives and lower cost of clinical trials. Healthcare in the region is dominated by private healthcare services providers. Presence of international service provider companies such as Wockhardt Hospitals, Columbia Asia, and Fortis Healthcare is projected to boost level of competition in the private sector. Rapid growth in the medical tourism is anticipated to fuel the demand for advanced diagnostic methods in this highly competitive market.
