In addition, with rising prevalence of cancer the demand for minimally invasive procedures is on the rise. Interventional radiology is used to view inside the body and employ radiological image guidance to diagnose and treat cancer.
Furthermore, interventional radiology has wide application areas for an array of minimally invasive and conventional surgical procedures. This includes angiography, angioplasty & stent placement, cancer, balloon angioplasty, and veterbroplasty-kyphoplasty. As per data of the American College of Cardiology, diagnostic imaging is used in 70% coronary angioplasties performed worldwide. With further rise in the applications of interventional radiology, the market for interventional radiology is likely to receive a boost.
At present, changing food habits and sedentary life style have led to a monumental rise in chronic diseases such as obesity and concomitant cardiac conditions. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chronic diseases are the leading cause of mortality and disability in the U.S. This is predicted to stoke demand for interventional radiology for image-guided diagnosis and treatment.
