(PharmaNewsWire.Com, June 19, 2017 ) CT scan (Computed Tomography) is an imaging of the body that uses tomography and digital geometry to generate a 3D image of the internal organs of a body. It makes use of a series of two-dimensional x-rays which are taken around a single-axis of rotation and then generated to form the 3D image. The evolution of CT scanners has advanced to the point where the number of slices per rotation no longer is the benchmark for performance. The multi-slice feature has evolved CT from simply a diagnostic tool into an interventional modality. Though the most of the CT scanners are still used as general systems, some are being modified for specific purposes such as bone densitometry or cardiovascular studies. There is an increasing demand for high slice CT. The high slice CT scan is expected to improve the clinical utility considerably, as the introduction of 256 slice scanner, which has a detector width of 10 to 12 cm would help in scanning organs, including brain, heart, entire joints, and lungs and liver, within a single rotation.
Rapidly growing demand for bedside imaging, home healthcare, and growing use of CT scan to assess the accuracy of post-interventional medical procedures, medical implants, and anatomical confirmation are some of the main factors driving industry growth. Also, a never-ending increase in the number of medical implants surgeries owing to unhealthy lifestyles as well as growing base of geriatric population is likely to increase demand. Significant advances in imaging technologies promise to improve wellness through quicker and more precise detection of medical conditions. CT imaging radiation dose continues to be an area of concern. A lot of patients and medical associations have raised this issue and raised their voice against the possible side-effects of CT scanning. The industry continues to try to reduce exposure while ensuring image quality.
The Latin America CT Scan Market is segmented based on its types. There are three types, namely Low-slice, Mid-slice and High-slice. Low-Slice Type has been segmented into Single Slice CT Scanners and Dual Slice CT Scanners. Mid-Slice Type has been segmented into 6 Slice, 10 Slice, 16 Slice And 32 Slice.
