Focal Point on Radiology in Japan

Japan is a leading country in terms of the number of diagnostic imaging devices per capita due to a strong radiological technology market. These devices should aid the early detection and treatment of everything from hernias and cancer to Alzheimer’s disease. Japan’s rapidly ageing population are well placed to benefit — but only if there are enough experts to perform procedures and interpret results. AI that helps detect abnormalities holds promise to alleviate a global shortage of radiologists and mounting workloads.
