Optical Imaging is an emerging imaging technology that uses light to assess optical properties of tissues, and has a great potential for improving disease prevention, clinical research, medical diagnosis and treatment. The basic principle of optical imaging involves - the detection of emitted photons at pre-defined wavelength ranges when the fluorescent probes in the optical imaging system can be excited by NIR light. Further advancements and breakthroughs in the field of fiber optics and photonics resulted in the emergence of innovative optics based technologies such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Photo-acoustic Optical imaging, Hyperspectral Imaging and Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) that have a potential to redefine the fields of medical diagnostics and clinical research. These technologies have an ability distinguish the diverse soft tissues based on photon absorption and scattering differences among the soft tissues enhancing the accuracy of clinical research and pathological diagnosis. Though optical imaging is still in the early phase of development, it offers a number of important advantages over existing radiological imaging techniques. These optical imaging modalities use no radiation and are non-invasive, offering a promising future for medical diagnostics and clinical research in the coming five years.
The research service on ""Advances in Optical Imaging (Medical Diagnostics & Clinical Research) - Technology Trends and Market Landscape Analysis"" is an attempt to showcase the technology and market impact of existing and emerging optical imaging technologies having a huge growth potential in clinical medicine for the coming five years. This technology based research report categorizes optical imaging technologies based on applications, based on geography and on the basis of technicalities of various optical imaging modalities.
This report service on Optical Imaging devices in clinical medicine is one of its kinds with 75% of its focus on technological understanding and advancement and a 25% of market engineering standards. There is only one recent available technology report on Optical Imaging Devices and it does not include market numbers. So this report would be the first holistic report which analyses in depth about technology as well as market landscape of optical imaging technologies.
