Market Overview

The major factors for the growth of the North American computed tomography (CT) market include the rising geriatric population and increase in the incidences of chronic diseases, increase in the shift of medical care toward image-guided interventions, and technological advancements.

The burden of chronic diseases is on the rise, across the world, and medical imaging procedures play a crucial role in the accurate diagnosis of these diseases. Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis, are among the most common, expensive, and preventable health problems. According to the estimates of CDC, six in ten Americans live with at least one chronic disease, like heart disease, cancer, stroke, or diabetes. These, along with other chronic diseases, are the leading causes of death and disability in America, and they are the leading drivers of healthcare costs. Furthermore, chronic diseases are responsible for seven out of every 10 deaths in the United States, killing more than 1.7 million citizens every year. To prevent the impact of chronic diseases on individuals and the society, research is being conducted for the early detection of such disorders. The access to technology and the relative cost of CT procedures, as compared to other modalities, make it a preferred choice of imaging. CT scan is being increasingly used to diagnose these diseases, which is also increasing its demand. A similar trend is observed in Canada and in some parts of Mexico.
