Bone densitometry is a non-invasive diagnostic technique which involves use of bone densitometers for quantitative measurement of bone mass or density. Over a past few decades, decrease in bone mass or density has been associated with the occurrence of fractures in future and thus bone density measurement has been considered as an indicator to predict fracture risk. Moreover, people with medications for corticosteroid treatment, cancer, eating disorders, amenorrhea and genetic disorders are also preferred for evaluation of bone mineral density.

Major improvements in diagnostic technology have been witnessed since last decade due to change in perception for osteoporotic disease, growing elderly population and high expenditure to society and healthcare agencies along with the adverse effects on patients across the globe. The advances in the technology are making it possible for early detection of disease before fracture occurs. With socio-economic development in many developing countries and rapid ageing of the population, osteoporosis has become one of the most prevalent and costly health problems in these regions. Growing ageing population combined with increased vitamin D deficient patients and rise in risk for osteoporosis in post-menopausal women contribute to the growth of this market particularly in emerging economies of Middle East, India, China and Japan. Moreover, technological advances in bone densitometerscoupled with increase in access and recognition of these technologies in emerging market, such as China, Brazil, Japan and India will serve as an opportunity for investors to invest in.

The global market for bone densitometers has been studied from the perspective of currently widely accepted technologies and the major end users. Technologies are further segmented, based on axial and peripheral bone density measurement. Axial bone densitometers include dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and quantitative computed tomography. Peripheral bone densitometers include single energy X-ray absorptiometry, peripheral dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, radiographic absorptiometry, quantitative ultrasound and peripheral computed tomography. The endusers for bone densitometers include clinics and hospitals.Hospitals remain the major hub in most of the countries across the globe for bone densitometry diagnostics and devices.

It is expected that the global market for axial bone densitometers will grow at a CAGR of over 3% from 2013 to 2019.In 2012, axial DEXA accounted for the largest share by revenue at USD 297.8 million of the total bone densitometers market. However, due to thedecrease in the reimbursement, the overall market revenue is expected to decline during the forecast period in the U.S and Europe.The market for axial QCTaccounted for the second largest share at USD 182.9million, in 2012. Moreover, it is expected that the global market for peripheral QCT bone densitometers will grow at a CAGR of over 4% from 2013 to 2019, owing to its high sensitivity, portability of devices, lesser scanning time, with better precision and accuracy, and also less radiation exposure.

Geographically, North America dominatedthe global market for bone densitometersin terms of revenue generation and is expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period. Theadoption of DEXA systems, growing elderly population and consequent rise in incidences of osteoporosis in the U.S., is expected to contribute to the leadership of the North American market. Europe was the second largest regional market for bone densitometersin 2012, owing to the increased demand for bone density measurement.

Hope Channel Accelerates Television Content Delivery Globally with Unlimi-Tech Softwares FileCatalyst Platform

Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

Unlimi-Tech Software, the pioneer in accelerated file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, the worlds leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce the selection of its software by Hope Channel, a global leader in Christian television programming and broadcast.

Founded in 2003, Hope Channel offers original, unique programs that foster wholistic Christian living. While it began broadcasting only in the United States, it is now a global network with 14 channels and reaches beyond North America to Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, and the islands of the Pacific.

To transfer its digital content to its entire global network reliably and at accelerated speeds, Hope Channel selected FileCatalyst Direct solution with the FileCatalyst Express client side option. Utilizing its unique acceleration technology, FileCatalyst Direct eliminated all slow file transfers regardless of transfer distance, file size and format, allowing Hope Channels media files to be sent reliably and at blazing speeds. Additionally, the FileCatalyst Express tool provided an efficient and simplified end user experience across all functions for sending and receiving files.

We used to FTP files from our east coast production center to our west coast satellite uplink facility for broadcast, said Justin Woods, Hope Channels Web Architect. However, even with high-speed connections on both ends, the coast-to-coast network latency meant that our transfer speeds were never higher than 2mbps. Transferring a single one-hour program would take nearly 24 hours! So, we ended up overnighting a lot of hard drives. With FileCatalyst, we instantly increased our transfer speed by a factor of more than 20 times, transferring files consistently at 45 mbps. A one hour program now transfers in 40 minutes. We couldnt be more pleased with FileCatalyst.

Hope Channel constantly moves their large format media assets on a global scale, making them great candidates for file transfer acceleration, says Dave McKeen, VP of Sales at Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc. The FileCatalyst platform ensures the quick and reliable movement of their content, eliminating any file transfer bottlenecks previously interrupting their workflows.

FileCatalyst will be demonstrating its accelerated file transfer technology at the Interop show in Las Vegas, taking place May 7 to 9, as well as hosting an open bar reception at booth 2159 during the show, on Wednesday, May 8th, beginning at 5:00 pm.

About Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc.

Located in Ottawa, Canada, Unlimi-Tech Software is the creator of FileCatalyst, the world's leading accelerated file transfer solution. Founded in 2000, the company has more than a thousand customers in media & entertainment, energy & mining, gaming and printing, including many Fortune 500 companies as well as military and government organizations. FileCatalyst is a software platform designed to accelerate and manage file transfers securely and reliably. FileCatalyst is immune to the effects that latency and packet loss have on traditional file transfer methods like FTP, HTTP or CIFS. Global organizations use FileCatalyst to solve issues related to file transfer, including content distribution, file sharing and offsite backups.
