US market for fixed C-arms to grow over 5% annually over the next five
years, according to Millennium Research Group
WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group's Global Markets for C-Arms 2008 report, the US market for fixed C-arm systems, comprising units used for cardiology, angiography, and neuroradiology procedures, was valued at over $1.4 billion in 2007 and will rise to over $1.8 billion by 2012.
In the US, several hospitals have begun using fixed C-arms in operating room (OR) environments. This trend has emerged as a result of the physician movement towards collaborative surgeries, in which many specialists work together to perform complex procedures. The installation of a C-arm system in the OR allows for the ideal imaging environment for this approach.
"A fixed C-arm offers the advanced imaging capabilities required to treat many complex procedures," says Ryan Goren, Analyst at Millennium Research Group. "These systems provide surgeons with the best imaging experience possible when performing complex interventional procedures, such as interventional cardiology and interventional radiology."
The Global Markets for C-Arms report includes coverage of US, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, and the UK), and Asia Pacific (Japan, China, India, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan). The report provides coverage of all key industry competitors, including GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Toshiba Healthcare, and Shimadzu.
Fixed C-arms are X-ray systems used in complex angiography, cardiology, and neuroradiology procedures. Single-plane systems consist of a single C-arm, while biplane systems comprise two C-arms mounted at a 90-degree angle in relation to each other. Fixed C-arm systems are used to guide surgeons performing interventional procedures. Modern flat-panel detector systems provide surgeons with superior image quality when performing complex, time-sensitive procedures.
