NEW YORK, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ — Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue.

Bone Densitometers – Global Trends

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164310/Bone-Densitometers—Global-Trends.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=prnewswire

The alarming rise of osteoporosis has propelled the need for early detection of the disease. Apart from this, introduction of new drug therapies and the need for frequent tests for osteoporosis detection have fuelled the demand for bone densitometers. Moreover, improved access to better diagnostic technologies, and increased patient awareness have catalyzed growth in the diagnosis sector, thereby fuelling growth in the global densitometers market.

Bone densitometers are characterized by the technology employed in the equipment. The global market for bone densitometry is dominated by the presence of DEXA, ultrasound devices and a host of other bone densitometry techniques. Global market has witnessed increased acceptance of ultrasound devices in recent times, which is the fastest growing segment in the global bone densitometers market. New developments related to Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) technology are driving enhancements in the diagnosis of osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, and fracture risk.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Bone Densitometers: Global Trends” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
