3D Printed Holographic Lens Help Efficiently Target Brain Regions for Imaging

Ultrasound is a popular technique used for imaging of soft tissues as well as developing fetus. Hence, researchers in the medical imaging lens market are harnessing the advantages of ultrasound to better brain imaging practices. For instance, researchers at the Polytechnic University of Valencia in Spain introduced a 3D (3 Dimensional) printing holographic lens that deploy ultrasonic sound waves in the brain. As such, holographic lens also hold promising potentials in assessing drug delivery for the brain.

The medical imaging lens market is estimated to expand at an astonishing CAGR of ~11% during the forecast period. However, ultrasound is subject to distortion in the brain due to the skull, thus preventing it from focusing on the brain tissues. Hence, companies should collaborate with researchers to innovate in 3D printed holographic lens that are capable of generating complex patterns in beams that reach target brain regions.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Medical imaging lens manufacturers are focusing in photonics equipment that are being pervasively used in laboratory settings to innovate in rapid testing kits for detecting COVID-19. Holographic lenses are playing an instrumental role in brain imaging. However, lens-free imaging solutions involving the use of holographic reconstruction algorithms poses a threat to medical imaging lens manufacturers. Hence, manufacturers should broaden their product portfolio in lens-free imaging solutions and target conventional medical imaging lens to budget-strapped healthcare systems in developing economies of the world. As such, the volume growth of Asia Pacific is predicted for aggressive growth in the medical imaging lens market, whereas the global output is estimated to cross ~39 million units by the end of 2030.
