Diagnostic imaging modalities have become essential tools in the diagnosis and management of patient conditions throughout the world. However, local economic conditions and healthcare policies continue to influence the relative adoption of imaging modalities in the different global markets. To monitor and compare how the imaging modalities are being adopted on a worldwide basis, IMV’s inaugural syndicated 2019 Global Imaging Market Outlook Report covers ten key country and geographical markets in North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, China, Japan, India, Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.
Over 300 respondents participated in IMV’s global survey, and they represent key opinion leaders, with nearly half of the respondents being the chair/chief/heads of their radiology departments, and over half being practicing radiologists. The radiologists also cover a broad cross section of experience in terms of their years in practice, with one quarter of the responding radiologists having been in practice for more than 25 years, 24% for 16-25 years, 19% for 11-15 years, 19% for 6-10 years, and 13% for 0-5 years. Over half of the participants are associated with large 500+ bed hospitals and/or academic/university hospitals in these global markets.
