Bone densitometer is an advanced form of X-ray technology that is used for the measurement of bone loss. Bone loss is measured by using established bone mineral density measuring standards. This procedure is used for the diagnosis of osteopenia, osteoporosis, and risk assessment of an individual for developing fractures. Increase in prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia worldwide has fueled the demand for bone densitometers. In addition, various beneficial factors offered by these devices such as simplicity in usage, relatively short duration, noninvasive nature, and no requirement for anesthesia make them a reliable procedure for measuring bone loss.
The growth of the global bone densitometer systems market is driven by increase in prevalence of osteoporosis & other bone-related problems, growth in geriatric population, rise in awareness towards osteoporosis, and increase in medical tourism for the treatment of bone-related problems. However, conflict about the usefulness of bone densitometer for individual clinical decision-making restrains the growth of the market.
The report segments the bone densitometer systems market on the basis of technology, end user, and geography. Based on technology, the market is bifurcated into axial bone densitometry and peripheral bone densitometry.
