Diagnostic Imaging Services Market Trends

  • Growing prevalence of various diseases to propel diagnostic imaging service market growth

Chronic diseases are the most common and expensive health issues. According to research studies, roughly half, or 45%, or 133 million—suffer from one or more chronic diseases. Chronic conditions like cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, respiratory illnesses, rheumatoid arthritis, and obesity can result in hospitalization, long-term disabilities, lower quality of life, and even death. According to the World Health Organization, In 2020, cancer was anticipated to be the primary cause of death for nearly 10 million people worldwide. Early cancer detection and appropriate cancer treatment and patient care can lessen the disease's burden. If detected early and treated effectively, many cancers have a high chance of recovery. Thus the growing prevalence is boosting the need for diagnostic testing that can be used for the diagnosis and prevention of these diseases. Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR.

Chronic illnesses have also had a significant impact on workforce patterns, including absenteeism, as well as health care costs. The Centers for Disease Control estimate that chronic diseases in the United States account for approximately 75% of healthcare spending or USD 5300 per person annually. Thus, if society is to provide citizens with better healthcare and raise their standard of living generally, it is crucial that we understand, manage, and prevent chronic diseases. Thus, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate Diagnostic Imaging Services market revenue globally.

These days, disease diagnosis and management depend heavily on medical imaging. The X-ray machine, invented by Roentgen in 1895, was the first type of diagnostic medical imaging. Since then, radiographic imaging has advanced significantly, and computed tomography (CT), which combines the strength of computer processing with X-ray imaging, is quickly replacing conventional X-rays. CT scanners use three different planes to take images. Over time, CT technology itself has been improved. The arrival of the spiral CT and the reduction in slice thickness have significantly sped up image acquisition. Over the years, medical imaging technology has advanced substantially. Further, several manufacturers have successfully integrated AI into imaging systems, but none are yet accessible for commercial use. Viz is an illustration of AI-integrated medical imaging software, which accelerates the detection and time to treatment for patients with significant vessel obstructions (LVOs). Such technological advancements are anticipated to fuel market growth during the forecast period.
