New Report : Computer Aided Detection Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 – 2019
Computer aided detection (CADe) assists radiologists in interpretation of medical images effectively. This is also known as computer aided diagnosis (CADx). These procedures help radiologists and doctors to evaluate and analyze the information yielded by various imaging techniques such as MRI, X-ray and ultrasound diagnostics. CAD technology is a combination of digital image processing, radiological image processing and artificial intelligence. These systems scan the typical appearances/images and highlight evident sections which may be the symptoms of possible diseases. This procedure aids in accurate interpretation of images with the help of automated process via CAD algorithms.
The technology is still in its infant stage and holds immense growth potential in the near future. It is employed in the detection of breast, lung, prostate and other cancers. For example, CAD in mammography highlights hyperdense structures and micro calcification clusters present in the soft tissue. Breast cancer detection dominates this market due to the increasing installations of these systems in ultrasound, MRI and mammography applications.
With technological advances and introduction of innovative products in the market, lung and colon cancer detection is gaining further recognition followed by breast cancer detection. There has been a trend of enhanced adoption of CAD systems in diagnostic imaging due to emergence of advanced digital imaging techniques and high efficiency of CAD solutions. The computer aided detection market can be segmented on the basis of application, technology and geography. The application segment includes CAD systems which aid in diagnosis of breast, lung, cardiovascular, neurology and musculoskeletal related disorders. Nuclear imaging, ultrasound, MRI and computed tomography are included in the technology segment.
The CAD market is gaining momentum due to the development of integrated CAD systems with multiple modalities, better display aspects, ease of manipulability of image, management speed and image viewing. The FDA’s release of guidelines for manufacturers on clinical study requirements and approval of CAD systems (devices and software), further paves the path for development of innovative solutions in this arena. However, economic fluctuations, less availability and accessibility of these systems might hamper the growth of the market. At present, manufacturers are focusing on the development and upgradation of existing CAD softwares in order to enhance the efficiencies of these systems. For better decision making, there is a demand for inclusion of patient information, such as medical history and prior diagnoses, and integration of the image database as a reference for radiologists. Invivo Corporation, Siemens Healthcare, Hologic, Inc., Medipattern Corporation, Viatronix, Inc. and Philips Healthcare are some of the leading manufacturers involved in the development of CAD devices and software.
