Global Markets for Medical Imaging Reagents and Analysis Equipment -- Focus on Ultrasound

NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Global Markets for Medical Imaging Reagents and Analysis Equipment -- Focus on Ultrasound http://www.reportlinker.com/p01057685/Global-Markets-for-Medical-Imaging-Reagents-and-Analysis-Equipment----Focus-on-Ultrasound.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Medical_Imaging INTRODUCTION STUDY OBJECTIVES BCC's goal in conducting this study is to provide an overview of the current and future characteristics of the global market for medical imaging technologies, which includes both the imaging systems and the contrast agents. The key objective is to present a comprehensive analysis and future direction of imaging techniques as an important tool for the usage in medical diagnostic procedures.

This report explores present and future strategies within the medical imaging technology market, which includes X-ray imaging, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography. The improvisation of the market as well as the setbacks and needs of the market are discussed in this report. The classifications, comparisons, advantages and disadvantages and usage of these types of diagnostic methods are also listed in this report.

A detailed analysis of medical imaging industry structure has been conducted. Revenues are broken down by the region and sales figures are estimated for the five-year period from 2011 through 2017.


Applications for medical imaging technologies are also discussed separately in the report, with an emphasis of the usage of the inhibitors in therapeutic categories and various disease sectors. The report also covers significant patents and their allotments in each category.

METHODOLOGY Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. BCC conducted a comprehensive literature search, which included technical newsletters and journals, and many other sources. Data were collected through interviews and correspondence with manufacturers of imaging systems and contrast agents technical experts. Projections were based on estimates such as the current number of end users, potential end users, mergers and acquisitions, and market trends.

INFORMATION SOURCES Many companies were surveyed to obtain data for this study. Included were manufacturers and end users of medical imaging technologies in various types of disease sectors industries. Data were gathered from various industry sources. BCC spoke with officials within the industry, consulted newsletters, company literature, product literature and a host of technical articles, journals, indexes and abstracts. Exhaustive investigations of databases by key terminology were completed. In addition, data were compiled from current financial, trade and government sources.
