Aging Population Drives Increased Demand for Portable X-Ray Machines
Demand for radiology via digital x-ray and portable x-ray will continue to increase due to ageing population, and growing prevalence of chronic disease and cancer survivors.
In September 2018, the U.S. Census Bureau announced that older people are projected to outnumber children for the first time in U.S. history. By 2034, there will be 77.0 million people 65 years and older compared to 76.5 million under the age of 18. The median age of the U.S. population is expected to grow from age 38 today to age 43 by 2060.
The tele-imaging technology went through substantial technological advancements, which subsequently enable healthcare professionals to perform and interpret medical images from remote locations.
One of the most remarkable technologies that have been introduced in the medical imaging field that has helped medical professionals diagnose patients and treat them with better precision and increased accuracy is the digital and portable X-ray system.
