The global medical imaging phantoms market has been segmented based on device type, end-user, and region. In terms of device type, the global market has been classified into X-ray/fluoroscopy phantoms, ultrasound phantoms, CT phantoms, MRI phantoms, nuclear imaging phantoms, and others. Usage of diagnostic radiology is expanding to diagnosis of cancer, brain injury, other diseases, and medical implants. Medical imaging devices scan phantoms which serve as alternatives for living subjects or cadaver. Scanning the phantoms reduces the chances of a patient getting exposed to excessive radiation, as it induces cellular structure and DNA damage. It also helps reduce misdiagnosis of diseases, thereby increasing the overall diagnostic efficiency of medical imaging devices. Medical imaging phantoms have applications in increasing accuracy of medical imaging devices which indirectly helps medicine practitioners and experts to evaluate, interpret, analyze, and produce quality data needed for medical advice and treatment. These factors are likely to propel the market during the forecast period. In terms of end-user, the global medical imaging phantoms market has been classified into hospitals, academic & research institutes, diagnostic & reference laboratories, and medical device companies. The medical device companies segment is expected to dominate the global market during the forecast period.
