Medical imaging has played an important role in the healthcare industry. The prevalence of various chronic conditions among patients has augmented the need for advanced diagnostics, paving the way for computer-aided detection services for debilitating conditions such as cancers. Due to its precise technology, computer-aided detection services are able to detect anomalies in the fledgling stages, allowing patients to undergo timely treatment and prevent further complications. Technological enhancements in the form of nanomaterials, big data analytics and 3D/4D imaging have largely simplified the entire computer-aided detection process, producing highly accurate results.
However, the onset of COVID-19 has dented growth prospects of the market. Imposition of nationwide lockdowns has generated a reduction in the number of hospital visits for preventive care, leading to a dip in medical imaging services for the
