Rising Number of Clinical Trials Coupled with Growing R&D Investments 

Clinical trial imaging plays a critical role in the clinical trials by providing researchers with a way to visualize and measure the effects of experimental drugs and therapies on the body. Medical imaging techniques such as MRI, CT scans, and PET scans can provide detailed images of organs, tissues, and cells, which can be used to identify and monitor disease progression, as well as assess the efficacy and safety of new treatments. The use of imaging in clinical trials has several advantages over traditional methods of clinical assessment, such as physical exams and laboratory tests. Imaging can provide objective and quantitative measurements of disease progression and treatment response, which can help to reduce variability and improve the accuracy of trial results. Hence, with rise in number of clinical trials has consequently boosted the demand for imaging services.

How has COVID-19 had a significant positive impact on the clinical trial imaging market? 

The clinical trial imaging market has been significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The outbreak of the virus has caused many clinical trials to be postponed or cancelled, including those involving imaging. The pandemic has resulted in travel restrictions, reduced access to healthcare facilities, and concerns about the safety of study participants and staff, which have all impacted the ability to conduct clinical trial imaging. 

Clinical trial imaging requires specialized equipment and personnel, including radiologists, imaging technicians, and data analysts who are trained in the handling of medical imaging technology and possess expertise in data analysis and interpretation. Due to the pandemic, the specialized equipment and personnel required for clinical trial imaging were redeployed to address the pandemic, resulting in a shortage of resources for imaging trials. 

In response to the pandemic, many clinical trial imaging providers have started offering virtual imaging services, which include remote monitoring of imaging data and virtual site visits. This has enabled some trials to continue despite restrictions on in-person activities. The pandemic has also led to a surge in demand for imaging studies related to COVID-19, such as those studying lung function and disease progression. This has created opportunities for imaging providers with expertise in COVID-19 imaging.

What are the Current Market Drivers? 

Increasing adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies 

The market for clinical trial imaging has seen a sizable opportunity as a result of the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies. The clinical trial imaging process, from patient selection and data collection to analysis and interpretation, has the potential to undergo a revolution owing to technological advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. These developments will aid the clinical trial imaging process to be more effective, precise and less time for interpretation of the images thereby reducing the workload on radiologists. Moreover, AI and ML are also capable of detecting various pathological differentiation which can be missed skilled pathologists too due his subjective interpretation thus providing accurate diagnosis. These technological advances through new product innovations are anticipated to dramatically boost the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in March 2023, Clario unveiled its new cloud based Image Viewer tool. This tool provides real time access, high resolution quality images and is data privacy compliant to the sponsors and the CROs.
