Technology is changing the world and intraoperative imaging is in the forefront of technological revolution in medical sciences. Intraoperative imaging system is a revolutionary optical imaging technology that helps in surgical operations. Intraoperative imaging systems accelerate surgical procedures by image guidance. The probability of target shifting during the surgical procedure (most commonly in the brain) provokes pre-surgery imaging location. Intraoperative image direction utilizes real-time imaging to detect the surgery target and thus assist in rigorous control and monitoring of the surgical procedures. Intraoperative imaging system has empowered the surgeons to precisely evoke patient’s anatomy during surgical procedures to maintain accuracy. The intraoperative imaging technology makes use of functional cameras and display systems that show in-depth location of the targets in surgery. Intraoperative imaging needs an operating room consisting of CT scanners and MRI machines with 3D sensors for surgeries of complicated organs such as brain and sinuses.
Intraoperative Imaging Market: Dynamics
The global intraoperative imaging market is growing steadily. Important drivers that project the growth of intraoperative imaging market are specified significance in critical surgeries. Moreover, it is becoming widely accepted in various fields of medical sciences due to technological advancements and high precision. However, need for strengthening the operating rooms by excluding any metal objects for use of the equipment is mandatory. This is mainly done to avoid the involvement of the metal objects with the magnetic field of the intraoperative imaging systems. The market has observed many technological advancement in these devices such as development of portable intraoperative devices. The acceptability of the devices in the market is projected to drive the market growth. The intraoperative imaging market is influenced by high cost of surgeries in addition to advancement of the operating rooms.
