In South America, the Computed Tomography (CT) market is increasing primarily due to the increasing incidence of cancer and other chronic illnesses. Moreover, the geriatric population is also increasing in South America as the geriatric population is prone to more diseases, which is expected to increase the prevalence of chronic illnesses in South America.

In addition, technological advancements have also made Computed Tomography (CT) technologies safer, which have increased their adoption rate in the region. Hence all these factors have helped the growth of the Computed Tomography (CT) market in the South American region.

Key Market Trends

Application in Cardiology Segment is Expected to Account for Largest Market Share During the Forecast Period

Modern CT uses a non-invasive procedure that uses X-rays to make images of the heart. Modern CT scanners, or multidetector CT, or MDCT are quick and detailed. This advanced MDCT can take images of the beating heart, and show calcium and blockages in the heart arteries. Further MDCT is used to gather additional information on the heart’s structure and how well the heart pumps blood, fluid in the pericardial sac covering the surface of the heart, the amount of plaque buildup and narrowing of your coronary arteries and any abnormalities in the large blood vessels.

According to the World Aging Population 2017 report by the United Nations, the population in many South American countries is aging. The geriatric population is more prone to chronic illnesses, especially cardiac disorders. Hence, the demand for CT for the diagnosis of cardiac disorders is expected to increase in the future. This will help the market growth in the region.
