Surgical Imaging Market: Opportunities & Challenges

The advantages of FPDs over image intensifiers, reimbursement cuts for analog radiography systems, increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures, rising geriatric population, and growing chronic disease prevalence are the key factors propelling the growth of this market.


Northrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/08/2019 -- The global surgical imaging market is projected to reach USD 1.63 billion by 2022 from an estimated value of USD 1.25 billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 5.5%. The key factors driving the growth of this market are the growing popularity of Flat Panel Detector C-arms (FPD C-arms) owing to advantages of FPDs over image intensifiers, reimbursement cuts on analog radiography systems, and increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures. The growing demand for data integrated imaging systems and high growth in emerging markets like the Asia Pacific is an opportunity for the market to grow. However, the high cost of these instruments is restraining the growth of the surgical imaging market.

Opportunities because of the growing demand for data-integrated imaging systems:

Data-integrated imaging systems enable the processing and reconstruction of images, computer-assisted recognition of medical conditions, generation of 3D images, and the use of appropriate quality control systems. These integrated systems are equipped with a software package that helps store patient information. With the help of data integration, physicians can easily compare scans to observe disease progression effectively.

To devise a treatment plan, clinicians are increasingly demanding access to integrated, comprehensive data on the patient's diagnostic history. In addition to data integration, there lies a huge opportunity for making data available through mobile technologies. This will help doctors to view and study scans from a remote location. Due to the advantages and convenience, the demand for data-integrated systems from clinicians is increasing; this offers a significant opportunity for market growth.

Challenges in imaging obese patients:

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (US) estimated that, in 2017, about 30% of the world's population is suffering from obesity. The study reported that the frequency of obesity has doubled in more than 70 countries since 1980. As estimated by the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight. Of these, over 650 million were obese. The WHO also states that worldwide the prevalence of obesity has nearly tripled between 1975 and 2016.

Obesity affects the diagnostic assessment of patients, especially for orthopedic and trauma surgeries. The pre-operative evaluation may be more difficult, as a more extensive medical evaluation may be needed. In addition, adequate radiographic images can be difficult to obtain due to patient size and equipment limitations. Imaging an obese individual may result in higher radiation doses and poorer image quality due to decreased tissue penetration. The accurate diagnosis of obese patients is, therefore, a challenge in the market. Players need to develop more advanced systems with better imaging and reduced radiation dose, to address this major concern.
