LONDON, August 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Widespread capital freezes and financial shortcomings in the healthcare industry have caused a significant decline in the number of Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Radiography (CR) purchases. One key challenge faced by the industry has been the lack of capital available for technologies which require high initial investments, such as digital solutions. However, with the economy recovering and funds becoming available to potential buyers, the unit shipment volume is expected to gain momentum in 2011.

Questions buzz about the topic: what factors are driving the growth of digitisation in the healthcare industry? How will the implementation of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) spur demand for digital radiography? In response to these questions and more, Frost Sullivan has organised a complimentary web conference to take place on Wednesday, 11th August 2010, at 3 p.m. BST. Research Associate, Ms. Simone Carron, will give an analysis of market opportunities, purchasing and technological trends, and the importance of product attributes to end-users.

DR systems continue to be out of reach for many small and private imaging centres which lack the necessary budget to make the transition, explains Ms. Carron. Digital solution providers should become attuned to the needs of end-users by building a diverse product portfolio and offering competitive pricing. It is essential for vendors to justify the high initial investments of digital solutions with an emphasis on operational cost savings.

This web conference will benefit Digital and Computed Radiography vendors, component manufacturers, distributors and dealers by discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the European Digital and Computed Radiography Industry.

You may also register to receive a recorded version of the briefing at anytime by submitting the aforementioned contact details.
