Medical imaging is a process of creation of high quality of image for the diagnosis of various diseases. Medical imaging technologies assist by medical specialists and practitioners in the diagnostics of diseases by providing actual and visual picture of the structure and function of organs. On the basis of end users, medical imaging technologies for oncology diagnostics market can be segmented into hospitals, doctor’s offices, freestanding clinics and equipment leasing companies. On the basis of technology, medical imaging technologies for oncology diagnostics market can be segmented into X-ray, computed radiography (CR), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, MRI, endoscopy, positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). X-ray technology includes analog and digital x-ray. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) includes functional MRI and standard MRI. Endoscopy technology includes video endoscopy, fiber-optic endoscopy and ingestible cameras. Computed tomography includes multislice or ultrafast computed tomography, electron beam tomography and standard computed tomography.

North America, followed by Europe, has the largest market for medical imaging technologies for oncology diagnostics due to developed healthcare infrastructure, technological advancements and rise in demand for quality healthcare services in the region. Asia is expected to experience high growth rate in the medical imaging technologies for oncology diagnostics market in next few years due to developing healthcare infrastructure, government initiatives, increasing aging population and rise in incidence of cancer cases in the region.
