Market Synopsis

Non-invasive coronary imaging is used for the identification and prognostic assessment of patients suspected of confirmed coronary artery disease. It is an essential tool for the detection of myocardial infarction, coronary artery disease, or acute coronary syndromes with or without angina. Some of the most prominent techniques include radionuclide cardiac imaging, echocardiography, cardiac computed tomography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. CAD is the leading cause of mortality among patients in the U.S. as it claims nearly 500,000 lives each year. Patients with a high risk of cardiac disease, undergo stress nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging or stress echocardiography, due to their high sensitivity and specificity in assessment. The cost associated with the traditional invasive techniques is extremely high and end users are now adopting more of such non-invasive and safer techniques. This is expected to push the market growth.

Market Influencer

Radionuclide cardiac imaging is performed using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), to provide the imaging of regional blood flow, coronary artery perfusion, and ventricular function. Studies suggest that these techniques are ~87% sensitive and ~73% to the detection of CAD. Echocardiography and stress echocardiography are the lowest cost diagnostic in current times. They display highly precise images of the heart and assess the left and right ventricular function, valvular heart, disease, and the extent of infarction and stress-induced ischemia. Assessment of coronary lesions, diagnosis of suspected acute ischemia, and suspected aortic dissection are other major uses of echocardiography. In the case of cardiac CT, the detection of CAD is carried out by the identification of coronary artery calcium using electron by electron beam tomography or multidetector CT. In patients with moderate (101 to 400) or higher (over 400) calcium scores, there is a greater prevalence of the obstructive coronary disease. Cardiac MRI perfusion is another advanced MRI technique that demonstrates the ability to detect high-grade coronary artery stenosis and the characterization of severe valvular disease.

CT and MRI imaging techniques show promising results as they have reduced turnaround times which improves the number of tests conducted per physician/radiologist. Thus, the rise in the number of tests will increase the ROI of the institution, boosting the adoption of non-invasive cardiac imaging techniques. Along with the reduction in risks associated with CAD, and quicker and accurate diagnosis of cardiac disorders, the increased funding offered by the government, is fuelling the adoption of these techniques. However, the lack of skilled professionals decreased awareness about advanced technologies, and the high cost associated with the system setup are major restraints in the market growth, especially in developing countries.

Some of the players identified in the global non-invasive coronary imaging market include Toshiba Medical Systems, Hologic, Inc., Carestream Health, Inc. GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, and Hitachi Medical Corporation.
