Global Information would like to present a market research report, "Medical Imaging - Global Displays and Post-Processing Software Market (2009 -2014)" by MarketsandMarkets.
As the demand for healthcare services continue to increase and healthcare costs continue to climb, the field of healthcare image management software will experience dramatic transformations. It is anticipated that, by 2014, the global post-processing software and medical displays market will reach $2.5 billion, at a compound annual growth rate of 12.7% from 2009 to 2014. Moreover, the software market is one of the most vital divisions and is projected to reach $1.3 billion at a compound annual growth rate of 11% by the year 2014.
Many changes in the healthcare industry have occurred over the recent decade as healthcare equipment vendors seek to supply an integrated diagnostic model that facilitates patient-centric, evidence-based healthcare. Such changes have spurred a dramatic transformation in the healthcare area of image management software.
Global popularity of CAD software has influenced vendors to emphasize niche-specific applications, including: thoracic CAD, colon CAD, and breast CAD. Because of the increasing numbers of mammo, MRI, and ultrasound CAD installations, the breast CAD is likely to hold and maintain a strong position in the future.
Meanwhile, the digitalization of medical imaging has led to the rise of the medical display market. The significance of medical displays monitors lies in its ability to enable surgeons and radiologists to view and analyze images generated by imaging modalities, such as MRI and CT.
