Future Market Insights delivers key insights on the global teleradiology services market in a new publication titled “Teleradiology Services Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016–2026”. Teleradiology is the practice of interpretation and analysis of medical images by a radiologist who is not present at the site where the images are generated. This service is utilised by hospitals, emergency care centres, telemedicine companies, and other clinics. Teleradiology services enable radiologists to use online services in order to improve patient care and treatment without the need to be physically present on site. In terms of revenue, the global teleradiology services market is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 21.0% over the forecast period (2016 – 2026) and increase 6.7x in terms of revenue between 2016 and 2026.
The global teleradiology services market is anticipated to project exponential growth over the next 10 years owing to increasing incidences of chronic diseases such as cancer, tumours, and orthopaedic diseases; increasing geriatric population; and excessive hospitalisations and increasing admittance in ambulatory surgical centres and clinics. Increasing consumer awareness regarding teleradiology and easy accessibility to the technology is another key factor likely to drive the global demand for teleradiology services. However, high cost of technology and services, image transmission issues, dearth of trained radiologists and technicians, and a low awareness in emerging economies is likely to pose major challenges for the growth of the global teleradiology services market. Ongoing trends for teleradiology services driving the global market include service offerings with the latest IT infrastructure including artificial intelligence and algorithms, cloud with low maintenance, and image backup storage.
