The analysts forecast the Computed Radiography (CR) and Digital Radiography (DR) market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 2.62 percent over the period 2012-2016.

The report covers the CR and DR market in the US landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

There has been an increase in the use of CR in the diagnosis of medical conditions in women, especially in mammography. Mammography is the examination of a human breast with the help of ionizing radiation for the early detection of breast cancer. The imaging of dense breast tissue or implants through CR produces high-quality digital images. High resolution, moderate productivity, and dose performance are essential for mammography, and they can be easily achieved through CR. Moreover, CR systems cost three times less than DR systems, so they are preferred to DR systems for carrying out mammography examinations.

According to the report, one of the key drivers in this market is the rapid technological developments in CR and DR systems, resulting in better images.Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in this market is the intense competition among the vendors in the US. This intense competition is resulting in increased pricing pressure, thus affecting the profit margins of major companies operating in the market.
