Bone densitometer is a piece of X-ray apparatus used to measure the calcium content of bone to reflect bone density and therefore bone fracture risk. It used to detect osteopenia/osteoporosis and the diseases in which the bone density get low and the risk of fractures become high.
The main purpose of bone densitometer devices is to identify those at risk of developing osteoporosis and to monitor change in bone density, mainly with therapy procedures. These procedures is used to evaluate the lower spine and hips, and is considered the current standard for measuring bone mineral density.
Due to prevalence worldwide, osteoporosis is considered a serious public health concern. Currently it is estimated that over 200 million people worldwide suffer from this disease. Approximately 30% of all postmenopausal women have osteoporosis in the United States and in Europe.
Bone Densitometer Devices Market: Drivers and Restraints
Bone densitometer devices global market is driven by the aging population, increasing prevalence of osteoporosis disease, wide technological advancement.
Bone densitometer devices global market is drives by the increasing prevalence of osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and increase in deficiencies like calcium and vitamin D among global population. The rise in the healthcare expenditure by individuals, technological advancement, and rise in the risk of bone fractures and dislocations are some other factors that drives the growth of this market globally. However, high cost of these devices and lack of skilled professional are act as a major barriers for this market.
