INTRODUCTION Since the discovery of X-rays, the field of medical imaging has evolved significantly, offering a non-invasive means for physicians to accurately visualize almost all major organ systems for diagnostic purposes.

New York, Feb. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Global Handheld X-Ray Imaging Devices Market by Area of Application, Device Class, End-Users, and by Key Geographical Regions : Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2020-2030" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06020740/?utm_source=GNW
However, conventional medical imaging solutions are severely limited in terms of mobility, and throughput, and are usually dependent on stationary power sources. As a result, they are impractical in situations characterized by low physician / pathologist to patient ratios, such as during an epidemic or pandemic. There is, therefore, an urgent need for solutions that can increase diagnosis efficiency in order to relieve the overly burdened global healthcare system. Handheld X-ray imaging devices are lightweight, mobile or portable devices, which are designed for routine diagnostic applications. The applications of handheld imaging devices in modern healthcare are vast, spanning almost all major medical disciplines, from dentistry to cardiology, covering several internal organs in various parts the body, such as the chest, and abdomen / gastrointestinal tract. In this context, it is worth mentioning that over the past couple of months, multiple studies have described the use of handheld X-ray devices in diagnosing individuals (by conducting chest X-rays) having contracted the novel coronavirus. Considering the limited access to molecular testing kits for the diagnosis of COVID-19, these devices have proven useful in the initial screening process. ,

Presently, there are a number of handheld X-ray imaging devices available in the market, and several device developers are engaged in efforts to further improve their products. However, a significant proportion of medical professionals have limited, or no, access to such medical imaging devices. This, coupled to the fact that nearly 50% of legacy X-ray equipment, in resource-limited countries, are reportedly not fully functional, is an impediment to quality healthcare. It is also important to note that the cost of handheld / portable devices is significantly lower than their counterparts. In future, such devices are anticipated to become more popular and eventually replace bulky, traditional medical imaging machines. In fact, the increasing interest in point-of-care diagnostics is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for stakeholders engaged in this field.
