Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/13/2017 -- Nuclear imaging equipment uses radioactive substances or tracers for the purpose of imaging. These images aid physicians and clinicians in detection and diagnosis of the illness. The development of advanced imaging equipment for fulfillment of the increasing requirement for enhanced diagnostics is leading to development in this market. These technologically advanced equipment have surpassed the conventional systems due to better precision and accuracy of images. Increasing incidence of chronic diseases such as cardiac disorders, cancer, and neurological disorders, technological advancements, and growing awareness about the early diagnosis have fueled the growth of the medical imaging systems market. In addition, increasing aging population, growing demand for imaging system procedures, and growing expenditure on healthcare would further fuel the market growth. However, expensive imaging systems coupled with unfavorable government initiatives have hindered the growth of the market in developing regions. Nuclear imaging is used in hospitals and medicines to provide a physician with apparatus for making an accurate diagnosis. This helps in deduction of treatment recommendations and to possibility of repeating of errors. Simplification of image evaluation process will help in successful identification of health issues. The advancement of nuclear imaging technology will also be beneficial for up gradation of precision and standardization in imaging techniques for clinical trials.
Increasing government initiatives for the use of modern technologies in healthcare and expansion of infrastructure is expected to drive this market. The introduction of many new manufacturers in this region will increasing the market size for nuclear imaging equipment. This market is presently consolidated and there are few manufacturers who own maximum share of the market.
