Technology in the form of cloud-based applications, image fusion, real-time imaging, 3D imaging technology and advances in storage and retrieval of imaging data will shape the future of medical imaging. And artificial intelligence (AI) would play a far more important role in the future by aiding radiologists to spot anomalies in human tissues –thereby helping to both diagnose diseases and monitor their treatment, stated Nikhel Goel, general manager - India Cluster, Carestream.

Goel added that over the last 2-3 decades, the demand for medical imaging services has blossomed at an unprecedented rate aided by new modalities such as MRI and PET and significant improvement in CT and ultrasound.

“In the future, clinicians will need medical images to give greater insights and information to solve the ever-evolving ailments that confront humankind. I also see patient convenience, delivery speed and the ability to diagnose complex ailments becoming far more important to radiologists. Carestream India is looking at bringing in Market Appropriate Product Solutions over the next 3-5 years starting with a big launch in the Mid-Tier X Ray segment in IRIA, January 2022,” he said.

The number of new radiologists joining the industry every year means newer trained operators and hospitals that will ensure radiology practice penetrates the length and breadth of our great nation.

Given the country’s population and various disease states, radiology will continue to play a vital role in diagnosis in newer delivery models such as teleradiology, stated Goel.

The x-ray machine market in India is in a vibrant space with steady growth driven by domestic and MNC players who are bringing in both affordability and technological advancements in the country.

Given the inherent layered nature of the Indian market, there is demand for both value, mid-tier and premium offerings, with demand being driven by private and corporate hospitals and now increasingly by the government at both, state as well as central levels aided by Ayushman Bharat.

“The 4 A’s of healthcare in the form of increased access, adoption (By trained HCPs), awareness and affordability (through private and government insurance) will continue to grow the market exponentially,” added Goel.
