A couple weeks ago I was asked about CVIS market shares and the size of the market. Agfa Heartlab was kind enough to run a print ad in December issue of Cath Lab Digest ranking the top 6 vendors in the CVIS market (from a Frost report):
|Company||Market Share (%)|
|Philips Medical Systems||23.9|
|Siemens Medical Systems||7.6|
Frost divides their market analysis between information management and PACS. This historical approach works well in radiology where radiology information systems (RIS) were a separate market from PACS. Cardiology does not share radiology's RIS/PACS split and all cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) include RIS-equivalent information systems along with a cardiology image management or PACS capability. I guess that's how a company like Lumedx, with a cardiology PACS that's been on the market almost two years, got left off Frost's list.
