ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Specialists from UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine are investigating Carestream’s cone beam CT (CBCT) technology to capture images of patients with orthopaedic conditions as part of ongoing clinical studies. The CBCT system will be on display at Carestream’s booth at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference. The CBCT system used in these studies is INVESTIGATIONAL and NOT AVAILABLE FOR COMMERCIAL SALE. “Orthopaedics is a major area of focus for our company because of the prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions among people of all ages,” said James Burns, Carestream’s Chief Technology Officer for the Digital Medical Solutions business. “We are actively involved in evaluating CBCT and other types of imaging technologies that may be able to provide diagnostic information that is not readily available using existing imaging systems.” UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine and Carestream are conducting an institutional IRB-approved clinical study designed to help orthopaedic surgeons more accurately and objectively diagnose the degree of instability of the patella (knee cap). Two of the challenges of this condition are identifying the cause of patella dislocation and then calculating the amount of correction that would be necessary when tibial tubercle transfer surgery is planned. “We compare images obtained on a conventional CT scanner to those obtained on the prototype CBCT scanner while the patient is standing, the quadriceps is active and the knee is flexed to 30 degrees,” said Dr. John Marzo, a physician with UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, Associate Professor of Clinical Orthopaedics, School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, University at Buffalo and former Medical Director, Buffalo Bills. “The orthopaedic specialists involved in the clinical study are extremely satisfied with image quality from the CBCT scanner and have provided positive feedback on the benefits provided by the use of this technology for weight-bearing exams,” he adds. Another research project is attempting to validate computational measures of joint surface area of contact and joint surface pressure using weight-bearing images from the cone beam CT scanner. “This CBCT scanner has the potential to become a non-invasive tool to evaluate a host of orthopaedic conditions that affect the biomechanical behavior of the joints, such as arthritis, meniscus loss, instability and malalignment syndromes,” reports James Burns, Carestream’s Chief Technology Officer for the Digital Medical Solutions business. These clinical studies and other research projects will help guide Carestream’s development of new CBCT systems with the goal of providing orthopaedic solutions for hospitals, clinics and sports medicine providers that use less radiation than traditional CT; are compact and affordable; and could be used in a wide range of facilities.

Rising aging population, technological advancements, and increasing awareness regarding early diagnosis will drive growth of the MRI Systems Market. Developing Asian countries such as China and India are lucrative markets for MRI systems owing to the growing aging population and rising awareness about early diagnosis in these countries. High field and very high field whole body cylindrical scanners dominate the market, supplied by major MNC companies including GE Healthcare with approximately 25-30% market share, Siemens with around 25-30% market share, Philips with approximately 20% market share, Toshiba about 10-12% market share and Hitachi with around 5% market share. The companies profiled in the MRI system market report are Aurora Imaging Technology, Inc., Esaote S.P.A., Fonar Corporation, GE Healthcare, Hitachi Medical Corporation, IMRIS, Inc., Neusoft Medical Systems Co., Ltd. (Neusoft Medical), Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, and Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation (Part of Toshiba Corporation). New and innovative product launches were the dominant strategy adopted by key industry participants to increase their market shares and to cater to the unmet needs.

The report segments the global MRI systems market by architecture, field strength, application, and region. High-field MRI (1.5T) accounted for the largest share of the global MRI systems market. However, the very-high-field MRI (3T) segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the forecast period owing to the ongoing technological advancements in this segment. MRI imaging has been an essential clinical diagnostic device since the 1980s, with the current worldwide market estimated to be around US$ 4. 5 billion per annum from the sale of around 3500 systems unit. The US, European and Japanese markets are sharing around 80% of this total having huge mature markets. The buyers upgrading their outdated systems and purchasing more MRI scanners to take care of the demand within tough cost-efficiency criteria. High field entire body systems have been generally welcomed by the market as they give extra applications which were previously unavailable and greatly enhance image resolution and quality, especially for ligament. However, higher field entire body MRI systems are large and costly to buy and difficult to install. These qualities have deferred purchasing decisions of many hospitals and clinics or made them to look for alternatives. At present the greatest demand for MRI procedures in the US is for Brain, Head and Neck scans with spine and extremity scans running a close second.
