Dental imaging market: The future is bright

By staff writers

March 10, 2008 -- The popularity of advanced imaging devices such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and digital x-rays will make dental imaging a $1.4 billion market by 2012, projects Millennium Research Group's "U.S. Markets for Dental Imaging 2008" report.

"Robust sales" will be the main driving force behind this growth, according to the company.

"With these advances in dental imaging, practitioners can enhance patient understanding of dental conditions," said David Plow, manager at Millennium Research Group, in a press release. "Because images can be viewed instantly using these x-rays, practitioners can propose treatment options faster. Allowing patients to visualize [dental] problems encourages greater treatment acceptance."

The report includes information on dental cameras, CBCT, and dental x-ray systems.

Some of the key industry players mentioned are AFP Imaging, Air Techniques, Ashtel Dental, Carestream Health, Dexis, Digital Doc, Gendex Dental Systems, Imaging Sciences International, Instrumentarium Dental, Lester A. Dine, Planmeca, Progeny Dental, Planmeca, SciCan, Sirona Dental Systems, and Suni Medical Imaging.
