According to the 3D medical imaging equipment market key driver of market growth is the use of 3D imaging in cardiology and oncology. In cardiology, heart valve replacement procedures are the most performed among other cardiovascular treatment options. Most heart valve replacement procedures such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement are minimally invasive methods. Surgeons face difficulty in positioning the new heart valve using conventional methods. They use 3D angiography imaging software for imaging the anatomy during the placement of the heart valves. A research study estimated that every year more than 320,000 individuals worldwide undergo heart valve replacement procedures. The study also estimates that this number will likely reach 800,000 by 2050. This rise in the volume of heart valve replacement procedures will increase the demand for 3D medical imaging equipment.

The global 3D medical imaging equipment market emerging trend in the 3D imaging equipment market is the development of portable equipment. Early diagnosis of diseases is an important parameter for improved patient care and increased life expectancy. The availability of portable 3D medical imaging equipment has helped offer better medical outcomes. These systems are automated, versatile, and easy to use. These devices are also cost-effective compared to their non-portable counterparts. This also helps lower the overall cost of medical imaging. Many vendors are investing in the R&D of these portable 3D medical imaging systems.

Global 3D Medical Imaging Equipment Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The FDA categorizes medical imaging as a technology used to visualize the human body for the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of medical conditions such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. CT scan, MRI, X-ray, and ultrasound are some of the medical imaging techniques that use 3D technology for advanced imaging. These 3D technologies offer high-resolution imaging, as high as 80,000 voxel or volumetric pixel, which is tenfold more than 2D medical imaging. 3D medical imaging provides better imaging of the anatomy and tissues than 2D equipment, to aid in surgical procedures. Many medical facilities worldwide use mammography or 3D X-ray imaging to diagnose breast cancer.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could adversely impact market growth is the availability of alternatives in imaging technology.
