Medical imaging continues to evolve rapidly in the face of burgeoning patient volumes, fast-paced technological change, and uncertainty surrounding reimbursement levels.
Clinicians have at their disposable a formidable array of technologies for visualizing disease, including magnetic resonance, ultrasound, X-ray, gamma cameras, and computed as well as positron emission tomography. Although modern medicine relies fundamentally on these advanced technologies, end-users are becoming increasingly concerned about the economics of acquiring and operating state-of-the-art equipment. Additionally, the medical imaging market is faced with a set of key challenges, including flat or declining reimbursement rates for a wide range of procedures, primary market saturation for many imaging modalities, and competing capital budgeting priorities among end users. After experiencing several decades of spectacular growth, the industry is facing serious limitations affecting its potential for expansion. As a consequence, the medical imaging industry has become exceptionally competitive, with market participants contending tenaciously for each and every client contract.
