San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/14/2018 -- Global Intraoperative Imaging Market: Snapshot
The healthcare industry is readily aspiring new technology that can enable caregivers to treat their patients better and the advent of intraoperative imaging has been in sync with it. A mode to capture real-time views of the brain for the surgeon during a surgical process, intraoperative imaging enables the removal of tumor more safely and reduce th. On the back of rising geriatric population and consequent growth in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes, growing popularity of minimally invasive procedures, and growing requirement of superior imaging in orthopedic and neurological procedures are some of the key factors augmenting the demand in the global intraoperative imaging market. On the other hand, high cost of the systems is the most prominent obstruction over the prosperity of the intraoperative imaging market. Nevertheless, the vendors of this market are expected to gain new opportunities in the emerging economies.

Based on product type, the market for intraoperative imaging can be segmented into mobile C-arms, intraoperative MRI, intraoperative CT, and intraoperative ultrasound, whereas application-wise, the market can be bifurcated into spine surgery, neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, urological surgery, ENT surgery, gastroenterological surgery, and maxillofacial surgery. Currently, the neurosurgery segment provides for the most prominent chunk of demand, which is a reflection of the prevalence of neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, brain tumors, stroke, and epilepsy. Based on the condition of the patient, the intraoperative imaging helps a surgeon in performing procedures such as lesion, deep brain stimulation, tissue transplant surgery with efficiency and accuracy, and neural grafting.
Some of the targeted audiences of this report are manufacturers and suppliers of intraoperative imaging equipment, neurosurgical, spinal surgery, and orthopedic associations and clinics, and medical devices manufacturers.
Global Intraoperative Imaging Market: Overview
Intraoperative imaging consists of the use of image-guided technologies that enable clinicians to perform operations, deliver therapies, confirm procedure status, and improve real-time decision making. The image-guided therapy helps surgeons modify treatments by improving targeting of diseased tissues, thereby boosting surgical outcomes. Prominent technologies in intraoperative imaging include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and computed tomography (CT).

Over the past decade, these technologies have gained increased adoption in performing various surgeries, such as cardiovascular and spine surgeries with marked success in neurology and orthopedics. A variety of intraoperative imaging tools has gained acceptance in a large number of radiosurgical procedures. The intraoperative imaging market is projected for healthy growth, driven by the accelerating demand for image-guided minimally-invasive surgical interventions.
Global Intraoperative Imaging Market: Key Trends
The surge in demand for minimally-invasive surgeries and the increasing adoption of MRI, CT, and PET to complement the already-existing routine imaging devices are the key factors propelling the market. The significant success of intraoperative MRI imaging in transforming contemporary neurosurgical procedures and brain surgeries has fuelled the market. In addition, the development of high-end technologies by manufacturers has helped clinicians perform complicated surgeries with accuracy, thereby stimulating the demand for intraoperative imaging devices and tools. Advancements in computer-assisted surgery devices and image-guided robots have led to newer applications. Emerging applications include visualization of vasculature and treatment of vascular malformations of the spinal cord; this is expected to unlock exciting opportunities for market players.
Global Intraoperative Imaging Market: Market Potential
A large number of medical device manufacturers are focusing on developing intraoperative imaging devices and tools with advanced functionalities that can be used in a wide range of clinical conditions. Several players are also offering upgrades in intraoperative imaging CT scanners and MRIs, which helps in selective tumor targeting.
Cellectar Biosciences, Inc. based in the U.S. is a clinical stage company in biotechnology focused on oncology, announced in March, 2017 that it was granted a patent by the Japanese Patent Office for its phospholipid drug conjugate (PDC) optical agents. The patent, known as JP6073961, elaborates on the use of PDCs consisting of CLR 1501 and CLR 1502 in intraoperative tumor imaging in vitro as well as in vivo. The patent expires on May 11, 2030. The PDCs compounds make use of the PDC cancer targeting delivery platform for tumor targeting optimization and facilitates the treatment and diagnostic imaging of cancer. The patent for the product candidate provides a wealth of opportunities for partnerships and collaborations for the biotech company, which is expected to enhance the clinical utility of the intraoperative imaging technology. This will also enable the company to expand its product portfolio in the coming years. The product portfolio mainly includes CLR 125, useful for the treatment of micro metastatic disease; CLR 124, a cancer-targeting positron emission tomography (PET) imaging PDC; and CLR 1502, used in intraoperative non-invasive tumor imaging.
