Diagnostic, Imaging and Radiation techniques

Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Renal Scintigraphy, also known as "Renal scanning" or "Renal imaging," refers to several examinations using radioisotopes that evaluate the function and anatomy of the kidneys. Renal Scintigraphy is one of many imaging methods used to evaluate the kidneys. Ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can also be used. Your doctor will determine which of these examinations will provide the best information about your kidneys. Because the radiotracer accumulates differently in different kinds of tissue, it can help physicians determine if something is wrong with the kidneys. Renal Scintigraphy can also be used to evaluate a transplanted kidney.

The medical image analysis market is driven by the increasing demand of the imaging modalities across various indications such as Oncology, Cardiology and Nephrology. The medical image analysis market is estimated to be $1.7 billion in 2012 and is growing at a rate of 7.2% from 2012 to 2017 to reach $2.4 billion. The Americas have the largest share in the open MRI market on account of the increasing aging populations who are aware of the benefits of early diagnosis.
