Cardiology PACS adoption will gain momentum in Australia in the next few years.

New analysis from global growth consulting company, Frost & Sullivan (medicalimaging.frost.com), Australia Cardiology PACS Market, reveals that the market was worth AU$9.2 million (US$7.5 million) in 2006 and estimates this to reach AU$15.8 million (US$12.9 million) in 2010, growing at a CAGR of 14.5 per cent.
Ageing of population and the increasing incidence of cardiovascular disease will cause a substantial increase in the number of cardiac imaging procedures. There will be a need to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs by providing better imaging techniques, faster and easier post-processing and archiving, extensive accessibility to reviewing, reporting and maximum integration with the hospital enterprise.
"The demand for higher efficiency in the cardiology workflow is driving the need for Cardiology PACS solutions", says Frost & Sullivan consulting analyst, Mr. Sourabh Kankhar. "With the number of cardiac imaging procedures growing each year, cardiologists, cardiac radiographers and technicians will demand access to digitally stored images."
Although the awareness about the benefits of image management solutions is increasing in the radiology departments, awareness is still low among the key users of these solutions in the cardiology department.
Adds Mr. Kankhar, "cardiologists, cardiac radiographers and technicians have a low awareness about the functionality, applications and price of image management and workflow management solutions for the cardiology department."
Therefore, Cardiology PACS providers have to educate cardiologists, cardiac radiographers and technicians that implementation of an image management solution helps the cardiology department to streamline workflow, expedite and improve the delivery of patient care, and use resources more efficiently.
