DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wmnvgv/global_radiation)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Radiation Therapy Equipment Market 2014: Accuray, Elekta AB, Siemens
Healthcare, Varian Medical Systems to Dominate to 2018" report
to their offering.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: There has been
an increase in the adoption of fully comprehensive systems for treatment
planning to provide radiation therapy. Such comprehensive systems offer
advanced features that allow complete planning of the process, from
patient data acquisition to plan validation. These information systems
provide comprehensive information and image management solutions. It
allows the simplification of radiation therapy planning for different
kinds of treatment such as 3D conformal, IMRT, electron, proton, and
brachytherapy. These comprehensive systems provide flexibility to
clinicians in order to quickly tailor plans fo each patient. Therefore,
increasing adoption of fully comprehensive systems is an emerging trend
in the market.
There has been an increase in the number of senior citizens globally.
According to UN statistics, in 2013, the senior citizen population
increased from 9.2 percent of the total global population in 1990 to
nearly 11.7 percent. It is expected that this trend will continue and
reach 21.1 percent by 2050. Senior citizens are more prone to developing
cancerous tumors. Prostate, breast, lung, and colorectal cancers are
among the most common types of cancer that affect senior citizens. With
an increase in the aging population, the number of cancer patients
requiring radiation therapy is increasing.
Further, the report states that one of the most important challenges is
the alternative treatment available for cancer, apart from radiation
therapy, such as traditional surgery, chemotherapy, robotic surgery,
hormone therapy, and biological therapy.
