Radiology or diagnostic imaging, simply put, is a medical specialty that uses medical imaging for diagnosing and treating diseases within the bodies of humans and animals alike. Various imaging techniques are used for diagnosing or treating diseases such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography, ultrasound, and X-ray radiography.
The Global Radiology Services Market Size is predicted to touch USD 8,102.51 million at a 10.5% CAGR between 2019-2024, reveals the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) report.
Radiology tests enable physicians to see inside the body and are broadly categorized into interventional radiology and diagnostic radiology. The former technology is used for treating kidney problems, liver problems, back pain, fibroids in the uterus, blockages in the veins and arteries, and treating tumors or cancers. Through diagnostic radiology, doctors diagnose the causes of a patient’s symptoms, screen for various illnesses including heart disease colon cancer, or breast cancer, and monitor how well a patient’s body responds to treatments that they are receiving for their condition or disease.
Various factors are propelling the radiology services market growth. These factors, as per the new Market Research Future (MRFR) report, include the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, advancements in technology, demand for procedures that are minimally invasive, rising expenditure in R&D, and excellent strategies adopted by key players such as product launches. Additional factors pushing market growth include accessibility of reimbursement for radiology and developments in teleradiology.
On the flip side, lack of medical infrastructure, scarcity of skilled professionals, high risk of diseases resulting from radiation, and high price of radiology devices are factors that may restrict the radiology services market growth over the forecast period.
Foremost players profiled in the global radiology services market report include Virtual Radiology (vRAD), Teleradiology Solutions Inc, Telemedicine Clinic, Telediagnostics Services Pvt. Ltd., Siemens Healthcare, RamSoft Inc., Radisphere National Radiology Group Inc., Onrad, Inc, Medica Reporting Ltd., Global Diagnostics, Everlight Radiology, Cybernet Medical Corporation, and 4ways Healthcare Limited.
October 2019: North India’s leading hospital chain Saket, Max Super Specialty Hospital, has partnered with Fujifilm India, a renowned name in the development as well as the application of information innovations and imaging. Owing to the shortage of limited experts and radiologists in breast cancer diagnostics, the two giants have joined hands for training physicians in early cancer detection.
