San Jose, California (PRWEB) October 11, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – GIA invites senior industry executives, domain experts, technologists and market strategists to participate in a comprehensive global research initiative studying the market for “Advanced Visualisation Technologies in Clinical Applications”. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as growing importance of high quality imaging in early diagnosis of diseases; growing adoption of 4D visualization modalities in progressive medical facilities; robust application possibilities in the field of radiology and cardiology; effervescent technology developments in lightweight, portable 3D imaging equipment; emerging opportunities in Asia-Pacific as a result of growing population, establishment of new diagnostic centres and improving per capita healthcare spends.
As a mission critical component of healthcare essential for accurate clinical diagnosis, and for planning surgeries and other interventional procedures, advanced visualization technologies are witnessing healthy growth. Visualization of anatomic structures to identify and study anomalies and abnormalities is a critical area in medicine and healthcare. Over the years, the market witnessed the emergence of several sophisticated methods of image processing, such as perception-modulating and realism-preserving approaches that have elevated the practical utility of 3D and 4D imaging.
The last decade witnessed the widespread adoption of 3D imaging technologies such as, MRI, CT, and ultrasound imaging. Falling costs have played an instrumental role in making these technologies affordable thus fuelling adoption. Key benefits of 3D imaging technologies driving its adoption among physicians and radiologists include ability to conduct quantitative examinations, make accurate measurements, generate a wider range of viewing planes for gathering in-depth information on images acquired; ability to rotate and manipulate images for better understanding of physiological phenomena; faster diagnosis and patient turnaround times. Economic benefits driving adoption among hospitals include superior utilization of services of radiologists, workflow efficiencies, increased patient throughput, and cost reductions in diagnostic radiology. Progress over the years has expanded the reach of 3D imaging from radiologists to oncologists, referring physicians, cardiologists and surgeons, transforming it into a healthcare enterprise wide tool.
Continued technology developments and the growing need among radiologists and referring physicians to perform volumetric visualization of medical images remains a tidal force driving growth in the 4D medical imaging (4DMI) market. 4D imaging generates dynamic volumetric images that include time and motion with significantly less distortion than 3D. Time-resolved 4D-CT, 4D-MRI, 4D PET/CT, 4D SPECT/CT and 4D Ultrasound are forecast to witness strong growth in the coming years. Cardiology is poised to emerge into a major application area for 4D imaging, given the technology’s invaluable benefits in imaging moving structures. The study estimates Advanced Visualisation Technologies in Clinical Applications to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.
The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design, will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.
Developed for Manufacturers/Vendors, Strategic Planners, Business Development Executives, Management Consultants, Investment Bankers, Consulting Firms, Marketing & Sales Executives, C-Level Decision Makers, Market Strategists and Technology Domain Experts, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
