With faster compute capabilities, medical imaging systems can provide in real time improved spatial and contrast resolution by leveraging signal and image processing techniques. Automatic detection of key features in an image is now becoming a reality. Fusion of data coming from different sources of acquisition plays a role in improving the diagnostic efficacy of the physician. Another consequence of Moore’s law is related to the miniaturization of the equipment. Whilst keeping the level of performance constant, one can today ‘shrink’ the volume of electronic hardware significantly.
There are today in the world about 2 billion cell phones each having the processing power of a mid 1990 personal computer with 100 times less power consumption. Similarly one sees today hand-carried ultrasound imaging systems that have the processing power of a mid 1990 high-end ultrasound system. This opens a new market for imaging systems, increasing the ubiquitous use of them in the clinical environment, creating new applications and opening new markets. This can be viewed as a disruptive technology as it enforces the following paradigm shifts: • Price-performance paradigm: A high-end, high performance system is not necessarily best suited for all types of exams.
Advances in medicine and medical technology play a dual role in increasing or reducing healthcare costs: They permit better diagnosis and treatment, thus leading to a longer life expectancy and allowing an acceptable quality of life, even for people having one or more chronic diseases. An example is diabetes, where self-analysis and treatment make a long life possible for patients who in earlier times in history or in less developed countries would have died at an early age. These advances, as we will see later, also help early detection or even prevention of diseases and thus help avoid costs for expensive treatment.
