The U.S. emerging diagnostic technologies market was valued at $880 million in 2011 and should reach $1.2 billion in 2012. Total market value is expected to reach $3.2 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.9%.

Report Scope

This report addresses the U.S. market for emerging diagnostic technologies.  Of course, terms such as emerging or new are relative in a rapidly evolving market such as medical diagnostics.  Thus, this report pragmatically defines emerging diagnostic technologies as those that are only in limited commercial use and/or in advanced development as of 2012.  Also included are certain technologies, such as telemedicine, that have been in use for more than a few years, but which have the potential today to cause a fundamental or paradigm shift in the way diagnoses are performed.  The technologies covered fall into the following categories:

  • Ultrasound.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Nuclear medicine.
  • Computed tomography.
  • Photonics, optics and spectroscopy.
  • Hybrid imaging technologies.
  • Telediagnosis.
  • Laboratory information systems.
  • Diagnostic decision support systems.
  • Imaging agents.
  • Terahertz technology.
  • Wireless devices.
  • Other technologies.

The format of the study includes the following elements:

  • Summary.
  • Definitions.
  • Developments in enabling technologies.
  • Key end-user segments.
