Teleradiology Market Overview


The global teleradiology market size is expected to reach USD 16.9 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 13.9% during the forecast period (2022-2030)


Teleradiology is the branch of telemedicine that involves the transmission of radiological images and related data from one location to another for diagnostic and consulting purposes. It is an advanced technology that has emerged due to the imbalance between demand and availability of diagnostic services during emergencies. Earlier, teleradiology was used only for emergencies. However, with the advent of the internet and advancements in the IT industry, teleradiology practice has become more common in recent years. The availability of computer programs such as Picture Archiving & Communication System (PACS) and Radiological Information System (RIS) is particularly dedicated to sending radiological images which have led to the major advancements in teleradiology technologies.


COVID-19 Analysis


In the COVID-19 pandemic situation, teleradiology systems are adopted widely to share observations and details information assembled during the treatment of COVID-19 patients. For instance, in March 2020, USARAD Holdings Inc. (US) collaborated with Nanox Imaging (Israel) to facilitate fetching Nanox’s mobile imaging system to high-risk areas, supporting preventative COVID-19 screening efforts in these locations. It has helped prevent the exchange of hard copies of imaging results and avoid in-person contact. Moreover, several international teleradiology alliances of radiologists are expected to propel the speed of clinical trials and studies on preventive measures. Furthermore, initially due to the lockdown and hold on elective imaging services, there was a decline in teleradiology services being observed. However, as restrictions ease, also the rate of imaging services will gradually rise.


Teleradiology Market Dynamics


Drivers



  • Growing number of imaging procedures

    • The growing number of imaging procedures is expected to drive the demand for advanced teleradiology solutions for reliability and efficiency. For instance, as per the article published in July 2020 by the University College London in the National Health Service (NHS), around 5 million Computed Tomography (CT) scans are performed each year in the US, and the number of CT scans performed more than 80 million annually. The adoption of teleradiology solutions has significantly helped bridge the rural-urban disparity in many emerging countries, including India and Brazil, as well as developed economies like the US, UK, and Germany. These solutions are more convenient and cost-effective as they eliminate the need for travel and enable radiologists to work from anywhere.



  • Advancements in teleradiology solutions

    • Teleradiology enables the transmission of diagnostic medical images right from one place to another, where it can be accessed by radiologists and physicians to provide their expertise without necessarily being at the same location as the patient. This is essential because radiologist subspecialties are few and mainly located in metropolitan cities.

    • The adoption of teleradiology solutions has significantly helped bridge the rural-urban disparity in many developing countries, including India and Brazil, and developed economies like the US, the UK, and Germany. These solutions are more cost-effective as they eliminate the need for travel and allow radiologists to work from anywhere.



  • Increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis and chronic diseases 


Market Restraints


  • Declining reimbursements and increasing regulatory burden in the US

    • The US dominates the teleradiology market and accounts for more than 60% share of this market. However, from 2016 to 2018, there has been a steady decline in reimbursements and an increase in regulatory changes within the country. So, this has led to consolidation in the healthcare industry. The regulatory processes associated with the industry are impeding the growth of the market. For instance, in the US, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, or PAMA sets appropriate use criteria (AUC) for advanced diagnostic imaging services provided to the beneficiaries of Medicare.

    • According to the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA), every healthcare professional who orders an advanced diagnostic imaging test should consult the AUC through a Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM). These developments can significantly restrain the growth of the diagnostic imaging market in the US, which in turn, will affect the growth of the teleradiology market.
