3D Medical Imaging: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Over the years, 3D technology has been gaining prominence in the medical field. Superior visualization capabilities, development of 3D glasses and screens, and benefits such as faster and accurate diagnosis, represent factors driving demand for 3D imaging technologies in medicine. Expanding application in oncology, orthopedics, obstetrics/gynecology, cardiology and dentistry, is additionally helping spur gains in the market. Technological advancements, over the years, such as integration of medical systems with PACS and telesurgery, have encouraged adoption of 3D imaging among surgeons and radiologists. Recent innovations include development of Multi-detector CT (MDCT) scanners that offer improved speed and resolution, enable 3D reformatting and multiplanar reconstruction for diagnosis of facial trauma or congenital skull anomaly.

In the area of ultrasound, high-frequency contrast-enhanced imaging is a major technological trend, offering volume imaging capability that enables real-time 3D imaging of organs. Display technology is taking center stage with users preferring larger display screens. Large screen size aids in efficient reading of images in shorter timeframes, view more content on a single frame, and enables radiologists to make quicker and accurate diagnosis. Display resolution is therefore growing in importance as a purchase criterion among prospective buyers. Rising demand for 3D medical imaging has also transformed PACS, where traditional workstations with two-color display capabilities are increasingly being replaced by all-color configurations.

As stated by the new market research report on 3D Medical Imaging, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Developing markers are forecast to witness strong growth over the analysis period. Migration to sophisticated medical technologies, government emphasis on developing healthcare infrastructure and demand for quality healthcare services among the expanding base of affluent middle class population, represent key factors driving growth in these markets. MRI & CT represents the largest market segment supported by aging population, shift from X-ray due to radiation concerns, and continuous advancements in image quality.

Major players covered in the report include GE Healthcare, Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd., Intrasense SA, Materialise NV, Philips Healthcare, Samsung Medison America Inc., Siemens Healthcare, The Esaote Group, TomTec Imaging Systems GmbH, and Toshiba America Medical Systems.
