Opportunity: R&D for technological advancement

Extensive research is being conducted in premier institutes, focusing on developing new techniques for detecting and measuring radiation exposure during medical procedures. Some notable examples in this regard have been listed below:

According to an article published at Eureka Alert in April 2020, researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory developed a new X-ray detector prototype which will revolutionize medical imaging, with a considerable reduction in radiation exposure and related health risks while also improving resolution in security scanners and research applications.

Challenge: Stringent regulatory requirements

Each country has a standard set of regulations for medical radiation, which are defined by regulatory bodies/departments. For example, the US Department of Labor has defined standards through the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the US Department of Energy (DOE) for protection against radiation. These departments have implemented several guidelines for the approval of medical radiation detection, monitoring, & safety products. However, these stringent regulations extend the timelines involved in the product approval process.

The key players in this market are Fortive (US), Mirion Technologies, Inc. (US), Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (US), Ludlum Measurements, Inc. (US), IBA Worldwide (Belgium), AliMed, Inc.
