Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/09/2018 -- Digital mobile x-ray products are gaining wide popularity in the medical devices market across the globe. Digital mobile x-ray devices and imaging systems are used to obtain images of a patient's internal body structures (anatomy). Typically, these devices are portable and flexible. These devices also offer all-round movement, which provides various advantageous in getting details of internal structures of a patient's body. Currently, digital mobile x-ray products are used in various abnormal conditions and disorders. For instance, these devices are used in the diagnosis of chronicling diseases, orthopedic surgeries, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, etc. It enables imaging with easy handling, fine positioning at the time of point of care testing (POCT), in intensive care units, in operation rooms, etc. Digital mobile x-ray devices deliver high quality images of all the body organs, especially in minute spaces with 360-degree turns.
The global Digital Mobile X-Ray Products Market is expanding at a rapid pace due to the rise in incidence of chronic lung diseases, skeletal fractures, and breast cancers across the globe. Technological advancements in the field of medical imaging, availability of the next generation point of care devices (POC), rise in number of neonatal care units, increase in number of regulatory approvals for atomization systems, and low dose radiation technology based devices are the factors driving the digital mobile x-ray products market. Conversely, lack of sufficient reimbursement policies and stringent regulatory procedures are the key elements hampering the digital mobile x-ray products market.
The digital mobile x-ray products market has been segmented based on application, technology, portability, product type, end-user, and region. In terms of application, the market can be classified into point of care testing (POCT), mammography, chest imaging, dental, and long length imaging of skeletal system. Based on technology, the market can be divided into computed radiography, direct radiography, and low dose radiation. In terms of portability, the market can be segregated into portable systems. The portable systems segment can be sub-segmented into mobile systems and handheld systems.
