European CR/DR market continues momentum

Thanks in part to interest in improving the efficiency and quality of x-ray examinations, the European computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) markets look set to grow from $299.8 million euros in revenues in 2011 to 365.4 million euros in 2018, according to market research firm Frost & Sullivan.

The emergence of flat-panel-based retrofit systems has energized investment in DR, particularly in Western Europe, according to a new report from the company. Instead of pursuing new DR systems that require added cost, many users prefer retrofit systems due to their high throughput and image quality at reasonable costs, Frost & Sullivan said. System affordability still remains an issue, however, due to the challenging economic situation in Europe.

Implementation of PACS is also expected to contribute to CR and DR market growth, Frost & Sullivan said.
