Digital fluoroscopy is form of X-ray that enables technician to visualize deep structures of the body. Digital fluoroscopy provides detailed images of different organs such as intestine, cardiac muscle, bladder, and stomach. Conventional X-ray records images to a film, while digital fluoroscopy helps in recording a series of images to the computer. Digital fluoroscopy is majorly used to check and evaluate the gastrointestinal tract, which includes stomach, esophagus, duodenum and the colon. Furthermore, it is used to diagnose tumors, ulcers, hiatal hernias, scarring, reflux, inflammation, and blockages. It examines and evaluates kidney function in venography and angiography procedures (placement of tubes in veins and arteries) and pain management procedures (nerve root blocks). Procedures that use fluoroscopy are orthopedic surgery, podiatric surgery, angiography, placement of Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC), placement of weighted feeding tube in the duodenum, urological surgery, cardiology, discography, lumbar puncture, and modified barium swallow study.
Digital Fluoroscopy System Market Dynamics:-
Increasing number of orthopedic surgeries and angiography are major drivers for growth of global digital fluoroscopy system market. According to a survey conducted by American Academy of orthopedic surgeons, in 2014, more than six million patients were reported for knee replacement surgeries, more than three million patients were reported for hip replacement surgeries and more than four million patients were reported for spinal fusion surgeries. Moreover, innovation in fluoroscopy devices is expected to fuel digital fluoroscopy system market growth. For instance, in 2015, Care Stream Health Corporation launched Carestream DRX Excel and Carestream DRX Excel Plus, this devices enhance workflow using fluoroscopy. These devices records both fluoroscopy and radiography sequences. Approvals of new products by regulatory bodies are also driving growth of the digital fluoroscopy system market size. For instance, in April 2018, Afga Healthcare received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for DR multipurpose imaging system. It is a solution for digital radiography, digital fluoroscopy, and advanced clinical applications such as use of image processing software ‘DYNAMIC MUSICA’ for both static and dynamic (moving) images.
Furthermore, mergers and acquisitions by key players are boosting growth of the digital fluoroscopy system market. For instance, in 2016, Canon Inc. acquired Toshiba’s Medical Equipment Unit. Canon is focused on developing new medical imaging, digital radiography, and fluoroscopy solutions along with Health IT software solutions.
High cost of devices and novel procedures in pipeline, which may provide better result than fluoroscopy are restraining growth of the digital fluoroscopy system market. For instance, endoscopic retrograde cholangioscopy procedure using spy glass rather than digital fluoroscopy to detect bile duct stones has completed phase three clinical trials in 2017, this is sponsored by Boston Scientific Corporation, a leading medical device company.
Digital Fluoroscopy System Market Regional Analysis:-
North America is expected to lead digital fluoroscopy system market due to high prevalence of medical conditions such as varicose veins, pulmonary embolism, peripheral artery disease, and pulmonary embolism. According to a study conducted by Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2016, more than 8.5 million people in U.S. are suffering from peripheral artery disease, out of which more than 12% are geriatric population. According to a survey conducted by National Institute of Health (NIH), in 2016, more than 40 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with varicose veins. Such high prevalence of diseases can drive growth of the North America digital fluoroscopy system market as digital fluoroscopy system is used for diagnosis of these diseases.
Europe digital fluoroscopy system market is expected to witness significant growth due to launch of innovative digital fluoroscopy systems. For instance, in 2015, Koninklijke Philips N.V. launched ProxiDiagnost N90 DRF system. This device is a two in one digital radiography and fluoroscopy system, which provides high quality images with fast supporting workflow and increases room utilization. This system also gives high patient accessibility i.e. the system has small footprint area, open overhead table and area this enables technicians and caregivers to be close to the patient during the procedures causing no hindrance.
Moreover, Asia Pacific digital fluoroscopy system market is expected to grow at significant rate due to advancement in digital fluoroscopy equipment i.e. C arms and innovation in technology of digital fluoroscopy systems. For instance, in 2016, Toshiba Corporation launched Infinix-i sky and double sliding C arm. This device helps C arms to be positioned in many ways to perform all procedures with ease. It helps the clinicians increase their speed, coverage, and patient access.
Digital Fluoroscopy System Market Key Players:-
Key players operating in global digital fluoroscopy system market include Philips Healthcare, GE Healthcare, Siemens Health, Toshiba Medical Systems, Shimadzu Medical, Ziehm Imaging, Hitachi Medical Systems, Orthoscan Inc. and Hologic Corporation.
