The global radiation dose management market size was valued at USD 585.2 million in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 662.9 million in 2023 to USD 1,678.5 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period. North America dominated the global market with a share of 38.57% in 2022.

Radiation dose management is the practice of minimizing and optimizing radiation exposure, particularly during interventional radiology and imaging. The channel includes information on radiation dose recording software, regulatory compliance, real-time staff dose monitoring, and technology for dose reduction, including interactive reconstruction software. Such software ensures the safe and effective use of radiation during diagnosis and treatment, minimizing the risk of potential harm. The global radiation dose management market growth is attributed to the increasing number of medical imaging procedures worldwide.

Moreover, the rising awareness of risks associated with radiation and increasing demand for early detection of severe conditions are expected to fuel market growth during the forecast timeframe. Furthermore, strategic initiatives by key players are anticipated to boost market growth during the forecast period.

  • For instance, in November 2023, Qaelum NV partnered with Philips to revolutionize radiation dose management in medical imaging, enhancing patient safety and optimizing healthcare workflows.


Surge in CT Scan Cases led to a Positive Impact during the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Market

The COVID-19 outbreak had vastly disrupted healthcare services, with certain areas remaining relatively unscathed, including the imaging tests, especially the CT Scans. Computed tomography (CT) scan was the most frequently used tool for the diagnosis of COVID-19. Moreover, the higher specificity of CT scanners to detect COVID-19 infection and limitations of the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) resulted in the growing importance of the usability of the CT scan during the pandemic.

Key players operating in the market also generated substantial revenue for their imaging products during the pandemic. Moreover, some of the imaging modalities experienced slow growth during COVID-19, leading to market growth. For instance, Siemens Healthineers AG highlighted a growth of 1.7% for imaging in 2020 compared to 9.6% in 2019.

This increase in CT scans led the hospitals to purchase additional systems, increasing the sales of imaging modalities, which, in turn, increased the adoption of these software. The market was fully recovered in 2022 and it is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period.

Radiation Dose Management Market Trends

Integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Radiology Practices is a Major Trend

The market is witnessing a major trend with the integration of artificial intelligence in radiology practices. Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are being increasingly used in various healthcare services, including radiology practices. Integration of artificial intelligence in imaging modalities can play a substantial role in this software. In addition, AI algorithms can help optimize imaging protocols by enhancing image reconstruction techniques and predicting individual-specific radiation doses.

  • For instance, according to the recent study published in Radiology, a journal of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), in July 2023, AI can use information from low-dose CT scans of the lungs to increase risk prediction for death from lung cancer, CVD, and other causes.

Moreover, as diagnostic imaging technology continues to progress, ongoing research and innovation will boost the outcomes of this software. This progress can lead to the development of novel tools, techniques, and methodologies for monitoring, measuring, and minimizing radiation dose exposure.

Radiation Dose Management Market Growth Factors

Suitable Guidelines and Regulations for Patient Safety during Radiology Practices to Boost the Market Growth

One of the most significant drivers is the growing number of imaging procedures due to suitable guidelines for patient safety. The increasing awareness of the potential risks associated with excessive exposure to ionizing radiation, particularly in pregnant women and infants, drives the adoption of these software, which optimizes the dose and maintains the image quality.

Moreover, to maintain the safety standards from ionizing radiation, organizations such as the European Commission (EU) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have set strict guidelines that regulate the use of ionizing radiation. These regulations cover various types of activities, including medical imaging and radiotherapy.

  • For instance, according to the article published by NCBI, in January 2023, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) developed safety standards based on the findings of the United Nations Scientific Committee on the EFFECTS of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR).

These continuously evolving guidelines and recommendations for such software significantly propel market growth due to their increasing adoption.  

Technological Advancements in Imaging Techniques to Surge Market Growth

Advancements in technology have led radiology manufacturers to develop imaging equipment and software that can minimize radiation exposure and optimize image quality. Radiologists across the globe are using iterative reconstruction algorithms as well as other image improvement techniques, which can reduce the amount of radiation required to generate diagnostic-quality images. For this purpose, software vendors are currently using an advanced version of existing solutions.

  • For instance, in August 2021, Affidea announced the launch of a new version, 3.2, of GE Healthcare's DoseWatch software, along with a novel business intelligence tool that allows enhanced monitoring of dosing.

Furthermore, the standardization of imaging protocols ensures consistent and appropriate use of radiation, leading to continuous advancements in imaging technologies and increasing their adoption, thereby spurring market growth.


High Cost of Imaging Modalities and Lack of Infrastructure in Developing Countries to Hinder the Market Growth

The high costs associated with implementing dose management systems such as radiation management software can act as a significant barrier for several hospitals, especially smaller ones. Moreover, diagnostics imaging can be expensive in some underserved areas, which leads to a limited number of imaging tests and lower adoption of radiation management software.

  • For instance, according to the Iranian Journal of Radiology, in January 2023, the monthly cost of various imaging services was USD 10,457.5 in 2019 and USD 26,482.2 in 2021.

Furthermore, the lack of infrastructure and healthcare services in less developed countries poses a major challenge for the implementation of radiation management software, which can hamper the market growth.

  • For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in January 2023, nearly 1.0 billion people in low and middle-income countries were served by healthcare facilities with low or no electricity supply.

Hence, the higher costs of imaging modalities and the lack of healthcare infrastructure in emerging countries pose a major challenge to the growth of the market.
