The development of on-cloud dose management solutions and the growing initiatives on radiation dose management for pediatric procedures are some of the major opportunities in the global radiation dose management market. Furthermore, some of the key trends going on in the market include the increasing development of imaging modalities with technologies that lower radiation dose, partnerships and strategic business alliances dominating the market, and various collaborations among market players.
The global radiation dose management market was valued at $212.8 million in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $586.7 million by 2032, witnessing a CAGR of 10.30% during the forecast period 2022-2032. The growth in the global radiation dose management market is expected to be driven by the rising prevalence of chronic disorders requiring diagnostic intervention, the growing focus on interventional radiology (IR), and the growing awareness surrounding patient safety and the harmful and biological effects of overexposure to ionizing radiation.
Impact of COVID-19
The decline in imaging volumes during the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the utilization of radiation diagnostic equipment. All radiology equipment had to be thoroughly disinfected using ethanol owing to the strict protocols to minimize the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
In the post-COVID-19 scenario, imaging volumes are expected to return gradually to pre-pandemic levels. As the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic declines, hospitals are expected to reallocate resources toward radiology and pursue diagnostic imaging with renewed vigor. Moreover, in the long term, radiology practices could be permanently redesigned as radiologists become more comfortable treating patients remotely. Furthermore, hospitals and other healthcare institutions are expected to be better equipped to deal with unprecedented events that may disrupt their businesses.
The COVID-19 pandemic placed high importance on automating tasks requiring manual intervention. While conventionally, data transfer and dose recording were done manually, the advent of advanced dose management software (DMS) has enabled automated data transfer from imaging systems into the DMS as well as automated dose recording. This helps eliminate human error and reduces the need for human intervention, which was a concept that gained momentum as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

• In March 2018, PACSHealth, LLC launched DoseMonitor, a radiation dose management software for tracking radiation dose absorption.
Demand - Drivers and Limitations
Following are the drivers for the global radiation dose management market:
• Increasing installed bases of radiology equipment and the number of scans lead to a higher risk of radiation exposure, thus creating demand for dose management solutions.
• The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and growing occupational hazards in cath labs lead to the growing concern surrounding the effects of radiation exposure.
• Growing focus on interventional radiology (IR) is expected to increase demand for IR imaging systems and subsequently lead to a higher risk of radiation exposure.
• Increasing concern related to radiation overexposure is leading to higher adoption of dose management solutions.
• Growing awareness and initiatives for radiation dose management are expected to push the adoption of dose management software.
• Advancements in dose optimization and benchmarking in various countries will encourage healthcare institutions to adopt dose management software.
The market is expected to face some limitations as well due to the following challenges:
• The lack of awareness among the population and the shortage of skilled and trained professionals leading to a steep learning curve hinders the adoption of dose management software.
• The lack of diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) for radiation dose benchmarking in low-income countries causes healthcare institutions to not pursue the adoption of dose management software with vigor.
