Digital radiography in literature and in practice are subcategorized on type of sensors into Computerized Radiography and Digital radiography. Digital radiography based on image conversion are two different types namely- Direct digital radiograph and Indirect digital radiograph. Out of many traditional systems available for projecting radiographs, digital radiograph sensors are being used globally. Thus, digital radiography sensor market has taken over other traditional radiograph market since 1990s and the trend is still being followed. In US out of all radiological examinations carried out, radiographical examination accounts 70% in both children and adults, thus digital radiograph sensors market holds a large market size and share.
Digital Radiography Sensor Market: Drivers and Restraints
Exposure to harmful radiations in patients and radiologists is a major concern in imaging systems. It has been found that use of digital radiography sensors have reduced radiation exposure to about 20 to 80%. This has found to be a major driver in growth of the digital radiography sensor market. More factors influencing digital radiography sensors market such as real time results in case of emergencies, user friendly, low cost of test, less exposure time to radiation, shorter scanning time and readily available portable systems. digital radiography sensor market is governed by high productivity, elimination of costly films, examination of more patients in less time and superior image quality with less background noise helps provide more accurate results. Digital radiography sensors are popular amongst radiologists and thus indeed driving digital radiography sensor market.
The only restraint in digital radiography sensor market is high cost of digital radiography sensors hindering digital radiography sensor market growth in lower income or developing countries. Hence an affordable and readily available sensors are expected to completely out rule traditional radiography market by digital radiography sensor market.

Digital Radiography Sensor Market: Overview
Present and future of radiography is digital radiography sensor market. Benefits of digital radiography sensor over other imaging systems available have been studied by many radiologists and published by researchers in scientific papers showing tremendous potential for digital radiography sensor market. Since 3 decades traditional computerized radiography market has been extensively replaced with digital radiography sensor market all over the world. This was due to invention of direct digital radiography using charged-couple device in 1990s and many technological advances over the time, hence leading to alarming growth rate of digital radiography sensor market. Initially the sensors were found to be too expensive to be completely replaced but research in technology has been helping hand for digital radiography sensor market. While portable digital radiography has thought to completely replace the CR systems in near future and make immense impact on digital radiography sensor market.
Digital Radiography Sensor Market: Regional Overview
