Global Dual Emission X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) Equipment Market: Increasing Utilization of Equipments to Detect Patients At-Risk for Osteoporosis

 Dual Emission X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) Equipment Market

Dual emission x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) equipment are the medical devices designed for evaluation and screening of individuals in relation to their body composition, bone density, and assessing the health of bones. This information helps physicians make informed decisions in relation to the next step of action or deciding on the next treatment course, if required. These equipments are basically diagnostic equipments helping in the identification of disorders related to the bone in patients.

Dual emission x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) equipment market is growing due to helps in clinicians’ advice patients about the appropriate use of any fracture treatment, DEXA scans to measure bone mineral density (BMD); the effects of these factors are mentioned below:

  • Helps in clinicians’ advice patients about the appropriate use of any fracture treatment: These equipments are highly accurate and are therefore ideal for detection of the body composition in patients, along with the bone health of patients. This information can be appropriate when there is a need for making a decision on the treatment for fractures in patients, as these factors have a drastic impact on which method of fracture treatment would be appropriate for each individual patient
  • DEXA scans to measure bone mineral density (BMD): Although, their usage is designed specifically for bone health and body composition an added advantage of providing bone mineral density through the usage of these equipments helps physicians attain higher understanding regarding the composition of bones of patients helping them in providing a higher quality of treatment and health care services

  • In December 2015, bb7 announced the availability of “ELITE DXA” table developed along with Norland at Swissray, the table will debut at 101st Radiology Society of North America’s (RSNA) annual conference being held in Chicago, Illinois, United States from November 29- December 4th, 2015. ELITE DXA provides the largest area for scanning helping gather information related to bone density and body composition helping enhance the performance of athletes and bariatric patients with these insights

The market is segmented on the basis of product type as C-DEXA, p-DEXA; application as bone densitometry, body composition analysis, fracture risk assessment, fracture diagnosis; end-user as hospitals, clinics, mobile health centers.

“According to Data Bridge Market Research, global dual emission x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) equipment market is expected to be growing with a steady CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2026”

Some of the major players operating in market are AMPall Co., LTD, DMS Imaging, Demetech AB, GENERAL ELECTRIC COMPANY, Hologic Inc., MB Tech, Osteometer Meditech Inc., Swissray, The Acn Srl, Central DEXA, Medilink International, Medonica Co. LTD, l’acn – l’accessorio nucleare s.r.l., HSL Hospital Services Limited, Demetech,  MB Tech among others.

With the growing prevalence of patients suffering from osteoporosis, there has been an increasing volume of patients undergoing specialized clinical evaluations for detecting whether they are at risk of developing osteoporosis in their lifetime and what measures do they need for prevention. This evaluation also helps physicians in providing better clinical decisions. This evaluation information can be acquired with the help of DEXA scans which is subsequently resulting in enhancement of adoption rate for these systems.
