Japanese company Hitachi accounted for three percent of the world’s market for diagnostic imaging in 2017.
By 2024, this share is expected to decrease to 2.7 percent. Diagnostic imaging allows medical examiners to observe the inside of a body to establish a medical condition. Different techniques and machines allow radiologists and other health professionals to take a picture of the structures and activities occurring in the body. The best-known types of diagnostic imaging are radiography (X-rays), ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnet resonance imaging (MRI).
