Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is a radiographic or fluoroscopic technique which is used for the diagnosis of various vascular disorders. The technique is also utilized for the visualization of blood vessels in the soft dense tissue environment or a bone. Digital subtraction angiography is applied for obtaining clear images of the arteries and is also highly effective in contrasting arterial structures with the surrounding bone and tissue material. Digital subtraction angiography has proven to be efficient in the identification of abnormalities such as ulcerated plaques, stenosis, occlusions and aneurysms. In addition to its application in carotid arteries this technique is also widely used in the evaluation of vascular by-pass grafts, aortic arch anomalies and aortic coarctation. The technique is being replaced by computed tomography angiography (CTA) as CTA is a less invasive test which produces 3D images.

The digital subtraction angiography market is expected to show a healthy growth in the near future primarily due to technological advancements and launch of new products in this market space. Moreover, rising interest of people for precise and accurate diagnosis is another factor expected to increase the market for digital subtraction angiography. A growing aging population is regarded as one of the most prominent factors responsible for increasing the risk associated with vascular disorders such as. It has been estimated that currently, the number of people aged over 60 years have doubled as compared to the early 1980s. This number is further expected to quadruple by 2050. Hence, accelerated growth in elderly population is poised to be a major driver for this market. Furthermore, rising incidences of cardiovascular diseases (atrial fibrillation) has led to corresponding increase in the number of patients...
