Intracardiac Imaging Market: Introduction

  • Imaging tools are used in interventional procedures. These can be invasive or non-invasive. Non-invasive imaging tools include ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Invasive imaging tools are intracardiac endoscopy, transoesophageal echocardiography, intracardiac echocardiography, and electro anatomic mapping systems. Intracardiac imaging is a modern approach for guiding cardiac interventional procedures in catheter ablation for arrhythmias, transseptal catheterization, and percutaneous placement of cardiac valves and closure devices.
  • Intracardiac imaging tools are defined as catheter-based imaging systems, which provide cross-sectional and sector-based view of the heart. These tools offer depth imaging and improve procedural efficacy, thereby minimizing the repeat procedures and preventing complications. Intracardiac echocardiography is a widely used intracardiac imaging tool in interventional laboratory.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Intracardiac Imaging Market

  • Rise in prevalence of arrhythmia across the globe, affecting around half a million people, drives the global intracardiac imaging market. According to the CDC, 2.7 million to 6.1 million people in the U.S. are estimated to suffer from atrial fibrillation, and people in Europe are susceptible to suffer more from atrial fibrillation than American Africans. These statistics are projected to boost the growth of the global intracardiac imaging market. Intracardiac echocardiography is an innovative imaging technology, which offers promising applications in interventional procedures. Intracardiac echocardiography catheters used are of low frequencies, which enables real-time visualization of the intracardiac anatomical structure and preferably utilized in guiding interventional procedures.
  • Faster adoption of ICE technique is attributed to advantages such as no exposure to radiation and less discomfort to patients during the procedure. Other advantages include availability of online information about catheter position and devices, and direct monitoring of acute procedure related complications. The superiority of intracardiac imaging is expected to propel the global intracardiac imaging market. Recently, Siemens Healthineers introduced 3D technology volumetric ICE catheter, which offers promising result in guiding structural heart disease procedures. Hence, product innovation is another key factor propelling the global intracardiac imaging market. ICE offers high quality imaging structures, which allow an operator to work with patient anatomy smoothly. However, high cost of ICE technique acts as a restraint of the global intracardiac imaging market. Nevertheless, clinical applications of ICE technique are likely to expand in the next few years owing to technological advancements and importance of 3D image acquisition in valvular and congenital heart disease. This is projected to augment the global intracardiac imaging market.
