Palo Alto, CA, United States, 2007/11/07 - New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, North American Cardiac and Vascular X-ray Equipment Markets, finds that these markets earned revenues of $765.4 million in 2006 and estimates this to reach $894.4 million in 2013.
Americans’ lifestyle choices and the resulting increase in obesity rates and incidences of heart disease are major drivers for the cardiovascular X-ray imaging equipment market. Combined with continuous technological advancements in existing systems, X-ray equipment is an attractive choice for clinicians to treat the rapidly increasing number of people with cardiovascular disease.

"New and innovative technological advancements make it possible to thoroughly examine patients of all sizes, improving both workflow and diagnostic confidence for clinicians," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Samantha Barbosa. "Strong procedural growth within the market will continue to drive the market, helping offset the competition posed by other imaging modalities."
However, growth in procedural volumes alone will not sustain market growth, particularly with computed tomography (CT) being increasingly utilized as a diagnostic tool. Although there have been some end-user concerns about the use of CT, these have now been addressed to satisfaction, while its impact on clinical outcomes is currently being assessed. Therefore, CT will continue to be a strong contender in the imaging space.
Alongside advancements in the X-ray market, there continues to be significant progress on the CT side as well as discoveries in alternative, non-invasive therapies. New procedures, combined with a strong understanding of clinical needs, hold the key to attaining healthy market growth.
In fact, there is a distinct trend among end users within this market to use less invasive techniques, causing the interventional side to swell. Given the constant possibility of reimbursement cuts, it is important for clinicians to focus on the interventional side. In turn, vendors should continue being innovative and supply clinicians with interoperable systems similar to those in the multipurpose labs.
"X-ray medical imaging is overcoming the battle against proposed cuts in imaging reimbursement in addition to being a competitive choice in medical diagnostics," says Barbosa. "Advancements in 3D imaging and enhancements to the multipurpose lab will also help the cardiovascular X-ray market stay abreast of the competition."
