NEW YORK, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Digital Radiography - A Global Update of Market Trends & Opportunities

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164269/Digital-Radiography---A-Global-Update-of-Market-Trends--Opportunities.html

The steady conversion of radiology departments from film-based radiography to Digital Radiography (DR) is spelling out attractive opportunities for digital radiography equipment installations. The aging world population induced parallel surge in the volume of image-based diagnostic procedures calls for quicker and faster imaging techniques, which offer compatibility with hospital networking systems. DR ranks as an integral component of every radiology department's workflow optimization strategy.

Primary forces driving market acceptance and penetration of the DR technology include the compelling advantages offered in the form of significant reduction in patent exposure to radiation, increased patient throughputs, flexibility in image manipulation, and accurate and superior image capture, and better medical evaluations. Continuous technology developments, and refinements in digital imaging advantages offered, are resulting in the launch of newer, more compact and powerful equipment models.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Digital Radiography: A Global Update of Market Trends & Opportunities" by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses
