Let's start with a little history lesson.
Medical Imaging Resources
At Maven Imaging, we’re in the business of x-rays. This unique technology has existed for over a hundred years and has gone through many changes throughout the years. Today, we sell digital x-ray systems. In this article, we’ll explore what those are, where they came from, and what the future looks like for this stellar medical technology.
The global digital x-ray market is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%. In 2020, the industry was worth 7.1 billion, and by 2026, it will be worth $16.4 billion.
X-rays use ionizing radiation, which is harmful to living tissue in high doses. Lead is a material that effectively blocks this type of radiation, so lining the walls of an x-ray room with lead minimizes the amount of radiation that escapes the room.
