The increased occurrence of diseases, such as cancer and metabolic diseases, has influenced the pharmaceutical/healthcare industry towards developing efficient and accurate diagnostic tools and therapies. With the increase in the aging population and incidence of diseases worldwide, along with the recent research and development (R&D), the demand for advanced technology for diagnostics has significantly increased. Technological developments in computed tomography have brought significant changes in the speed, spatial resolution and dose efficiency in newer CT scanners. The advanced and high-end machines have transformed the field of radiology/imaging. This report focuses on the global market for CT scanners and provides an updated review, including the basic design and its applications.
The report addresses the total market for CT scanners focusing on the various types of CT scanners used, which include low-tier CT scanners (64 slices), portable scanners and cone beam CT scanners. The report also covers four main areas of applications: oncology, cardiovascular, neurology and others (guided procedures, spine, chest/thorax, pelvic/abdominal). The report also covers the market for CT scanners by end user. The end users of CT scanners considered in this report are hospitals and clinics, diagnostic labs and research and academics. Cone beam computed tomography is not included in the market by end user and application as this modality is generally used in dentistry and for maxillofacial scanning.
