LONDON, Jan. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical imaging modalities such as X-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, and others, have been designed to capture high resolution images through minimally-invasive approaches. However, each of these also suffer from limitations, foremost of which is that they utilize ionizing radiation that is hazardous to the patient when used frequently. Optical imaging uses radiation corresponding to the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum, which have low energy and are clinically safe. Optical imaging also produces reproducible and accurate images, and facilitates quantitative assessment of the sample. This research service sheds light on the various techniques under the umbrella of optical imaging, their applications, advantages and technical capabilities. The service also analyzes recent funding trends, business deals, technology management strategies and assesses the intellectual property landscape.
Optical Imaging technologies are an important class of medical imaging solutions that cater to a wide variety of clinical, pre-clinical and research applications. They offer a wide spectrum of wavelengths that can be used for imaging, they are non-ionizing in nature and offer a spread of colors, which competing technologies do not offer.
Optical imaging systems are an outcome of convergence of technologies from a variety of industries. Particularly important are next-generation sensors (optical, bio-, photoelectric, CMOS [complementary metal oxide semiconductor], infrared sensors), optical systems (light source, collimators, reflectors, mirrors, lenses), biochemical technologies such as biomarkers, dyes, contrast agents and informatics systems for processing and analytics.
Innovations in this space and market growth are sustained by the need to provide better imaging quality, non-harmless modes of imaging and to cater to a variety of applications, each with its own set of clinical requirements. Additionally, there is an increasing demand for cheaper, better, and portable imaging systems, ones that can be integrated into existing imaging systems and mobile phones to enable affordable and at-a-distance imaging.
