Throughout the forecast however, the market lead will gradually shift towards the 64 slice scanner segment, due to their recognition as the industry standard. The 64 slice scanner segment will also be the only segment of the overall CT scanner market to exhibit any notable market growth. Lower slice segments in contrast, will remain stagnant as healthcare facilities slowly shift towards higher slice systems.
The U.S. market for CT scanners includes 16/20 slice, 32/40 slice, 64 slice and ultra premium scanners, which take over 64 slices. The CT market has been decreasing since the implementation of the deficit reduction act (DRA) and furthermore with the recent introduction of XR-29, which reduced reimbursement for many CT scans.
