Medical Imaging Phantoms Market size in 2020 is estimated at $113.3 Million, growing at a CAGR of 2.3% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Medical imaging phantoms are objects used as a stand-in for human tissues in the biomedical research community to ensure that human body imaging systems and methods operate correctly. Medical imaging phantoms are used as an alternative to human tissue. Medical imaging phantoms help to deliver more productive, qualitative and reliable results for medical imaging systems. However, increased use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in radiotherapy has led to a growing need for phantoms that provide tissue-like contrast in both computed tomography (CT) and MRI images. The growing number of radiography tests is boosting the need for X-ray devices. For instance, according to the National Health Service (NHS), in January 2017, 1.9 million plain radiography tests were recorded in England. Moreover, the increasing number of diagnostic imaging facilities and the increasing need for in-house calibration techniques are factors driving the demand for innovative Medical Imaging Phantoms Market during the aforesaid period.
