The strong growth happening over the last several years in the global imaging market is a direct result of healthcare demands rising and the implementation of technological advances. With the global economic downturn starting in 2008 behind us, those in the industry who cancelled or delayed purchases as a result of the weak economic climate, are purchasing again. The future for the 3D medical imaging market appears optimistic according to Global Industry Analysts, San Jose, Calif., who predict the aging population and the incidence of critical diseases will fuel much of the $3.5 billion growth expected by 2015.
Europe has been at the forefront of the 3D imaging market demand for some time, but the U.S. is also poised to be a major player. New applications for this technology represent additional areas of growth such as obstetrics/gynecology, breast and prostate brachytherapy, cardiology and urology and will provide ample opportunities, according to the group, for 3D imaging equipment. The Biodex 3D Imaging C-Arm table is designed to work with the new 3D imaging C-Arms. Prior to the introduction of this table, images remained 2D, the table’s role is a platform, but unlike other tables this provides tilts and lateral rolls, as well as a unique cantilevered design that enables unrestricted C-Arm movement, to improve imagery.
