Research institutes, medical facilities, and manufacturers of medical devices are tapping into next-generation medical imaging. For instance, a study conducted by Stanford University used an AI algorithm called CheXNeXt to assess chest X-rays for 14 different pathologies. Such technological advancements along with research & development initiatives are further enabling AI to advance the accuracy of medical images. This technology is considered to showcase promising effects in risk assessment, screening, and precision medicine.

Healthcare products rely on regulatory approval for commercialization, which is expected to hinder the AI in medical imaging market growth. The process of gaining regulatory clearance is slow, especially for machine learning and AI-based medical imaging products. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) strictly regulates the licensing processes of these devices. This is due to a lack of understanding of machine learning-enabled medical diagnosis and associated risks.

AI-based medical equipment manufacturers face difficulties when launching new products on account of rigorous regulatory trials and applications. This leads to lesser product availability in the market. For example, to legally introduce a medical device in the U.S., the companies making AI software for medical applications must follow FDA compliance which involves three levels of clearance including 510(k)14, premarket approval, and the de novo pathway.

Impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the AI in medical imaging market trends

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a slightly positive impact on AI in medical imaging market. There was an increase in awareness regarding the benefits of AI in radiology for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Technological advancements in the field of healthcare in the wake of the pandemic have resulted in the development of advanced diagnostic solutions to address disease transmission.

The ultrasound imaging modality segment in the AI in medical imaging market is projected to record more than 25% CAGR during 2022-2030. Ultrasound technology is widely used in the screening and diagnosis of breast cancer along with thyroid screening, pregnancy monitoring, and blood flow evaluation. It is also used to detect multiple parameters of fetal health such as cyst detection, and fetal anomalies through biometric planes and scans.

Growing concerns associated with high prevalence of perinatal mortality, and stillbirths will accelerate the demand for AI-based ultrasound imaging systems. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 2 million stillbirths are reported each year.
