Medical Display Demands Rise Across Europe

Medical imaging displays are in high-demand across Europe due to increased volumes of image transfer. Radiologists using medical images just for diagnosis is a thing of the past. Hospitals linked to a PACS can use images for referral, patient consultation and surgical planning. With the increased use of images, sufficient numbers of displays are needed to view them, leaving hospitals across Europe to take the clinical an long term benefits of adding additional medical displays into account.
Frost and Sullivan reported that the medical imaging display markets in Europe earned revenues of $110.2 million in 2005, and that number is expected to increase to $289.4 million by 2012.
The demand for a wider network of displays has seen the need for cost savings becoming more popular, so some hospitals are seeking commodity displays for referral purposes. This may be problematic because medical grade displays are fitted with auto-calibration software and remote performance monitoring that provides long-term viewing of high-quality images.
“Financially constrained customers are increasingly seeking justification for installing non-medical grade displays for secondary or tertiary reading”, remarked Frost & Sullivan Team Leader Martin Bryan. “This presents cost savings for end-users but poses a significant threat to the business of market participants.”
