US Market Report for Dental Imaging Devices 2016 – MedView
The dental imaging device market discussed in this report consists of three main segments: intraoral X-ray devices, extraoral X-ray devices and CBCT scanners. The intraoral X-ray device market is further segmented into X-ray generators, intraoral X-ray film, PSP sensors, PSP plates and digital sensors. The extraoral X-ray device market is further segmented into analog panoramic systems, digital panoramic systems and panoramic/cephalometric systems. The CBCT scanner market is further segmented into small, medium and large field-of-view categories.

The full report suite on the U.S. market for dental imaging devices includes intraoral X-ray devices, extraoral X-ray devices and CBCT scanners.
Both intraoral and extraoral X-rays with digital technology are rapidly penetrating the market and replacing analog systems. Digital technology provides dental practitioners with numerous technological and operational efficiencies when operating X-ray systems. With digital technology, dentists are able to immediately upload and manipulate X-ray images using imaging software. This allows dentists to observe enhanced images of the X-rays and make more accurate diagnoses. Likewise, dentists are able to save a greater amount of time between patients, thereby increasing patient turnover. Furthermore, switching to digital technology helps to minimize the amount of radiation exposure to patients.
Some dentists, especially those of older generations, take longer to adopt new technology in their offices. Many will not even consider the investment until significant scientific research is conducted and some conclusive evidence is provided with regards to the safety of radiation-generating machines. This slows down the growth of hi-tech devices significantly, although as evidence becomes clearer, the resistance will wear off, increasing penetration rates in the medium run.
