United States computed radiography market: 2.6% CAGR growth expected between 2012-2016

Press Release   •   Aug 21, 2013 15:55 BST

The United States computed radiography market (CR) and digital radiography industry (DR) is to grow at a CAGR of 2.62 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in technological innovations. The CR and DR market in the US has also been witnessing an increasing use of CR in mammography. However, intense competition among vendors could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

There has been an increase in the use of CR in the diagnosis of medical conditions in women, especially in mammography. Mammography is the examination of a human breast with the help of ionizing radiation for the early detection of breast cancer. The imaging of dense breast tissue or implants through CR produces high-quality digital images. High resolution, moderate productivity, and dose performance are essential for mammography, and they can be easily achieved through CR. Moreover, CR systems cost three times less than DR systems, so they are preferred to DR systems for carrying out mammography examinations.

One of the key drivers in this market is the rapid technological developments in CR and DR systems, resulting in better images.
