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.

Experts Estimate 270 Million Computers Have Outdated Anti Virus Software


Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2013

Millions of computer users are using out of date antivirus software according to the latest volume of the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report released on April 17th, 2013. It is no secret that having an up to date anti-virus software is recommended by security experts, but do users really need the most updated version to be protected? With the sheer number of new malware applications, computer viruses and the ever growing threats online, it would seem obvious that users would want to have the highest level of cyber security, but an overwhelming number of PC users are not using the most current antivirus software applications.

Microsoft's Security report indicates that there are nearly 270 million users worldwide who are using an outdated anti-virus on their home or office computer. The report also shows that the chances of getting a computer virus or malicious malware is 5 times higher for users who are not being proactive and taking the necessary precautions. Everyone knows that a computer needs AV software but why would so many people neglect to protect their computers?

People today live in a digital world where things are always becoming more automated and people often assume that once software is installed on the users machine that is all they ever need to do and the rest will happen by itself, unfortunately this is not the case, says Ilias Melikov a spokesperson for the security software PCKeeper.

It is a common misconception that blocking all malware or computer viruses is virtually impossible and with that mindset many users undervalue the need for the most recent AV software. The speed that technology changes in todays world means that the most basic protection can become obsolete in a few days, weeks or months. In the same way that the bad guys are always changing how malware and viruses are delivered, Anti Virus companies are investing millions of dollars in the technology to stay a step ahead of them in detecting threats and vulnerabilities.

Threats are always changing and we must change with them and part of that change means having the most current version of whatever anti-virus application you are using. We update our virus database as often as several times a day and this is a contributing factor of why PCKeeper has performed so well and has some of the best detection rates among the top security software vendors, says Mr. Melikov.

In fact, according to the independent security testing agency AV Comparatives, the PCKeeper AntiVirus proved to be 99.4% effective in identifying potential threats. No antivirus tested scored a perfect 100% detection rate but cyber security experts recommend users have an anti-virus software of at least a 95% detection and above to be safe. For more information on cyber security tips check out the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report: http://www.microsoft.com/security/sir/default.aspx

For more information on PCKeeper visit the official website to learn more. To get PCKeeper the software vendor is currently offering users to pay any price they choose.
