Diffusion of digital radiology modalities in the Nordic countries and Japan.
Japan-Nordic symposium on PACS. Osaka JPN, 1992/10/05.
The Nordic countries have 23 million inhabitants.
About 14 million radiology examinations are performed annually at hospitals and in primary health care.
This represents about 600 examinations per 1000 inhabitants per year.
Japan, on the other hand, has 125 million inhabitants and annually performs about 200 million radiology examinations at hospitals and in primary health care.
This represents about 1600 examinations per 1000 inhabitants per year.
The above figures do not include dental X-ray examinations.
Between 15% and 20% of all radiology examinations in the Nordic countries and about 5% in Japan are performed with digital modalities such as computerized tomography, digital subtraction angiography, computed radiography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
