Optical imaging a is developing non-invasive process or technology that enables detailed and more specific assessment of organs, tissues, and even molecules. The technique uses photons and visible light to obtain thorough images of organ and tissue and also the smaller structures such as molecules and cells. Technique is proved to be much efficient and safer than other imaging methods such as MRI and X rays. It has also been detected to be of great potential for disease diagnosis, prevention and treatment. It uses several colors and spectra of light to calculate or measure and perceive the diverse properties of a tissue.
Rising efforts for R&D by biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies that require the use of optical imaging systems is inspiring the market growth. In addition, educational institutions and veterinary hospitals are using this technology in diagnostics and research purposes, owing to its non-invasive and much safer nature. On the other hand, factors such as high cost linked with the process, lack of skilled technicians and stringent government policies are obstructing the market growth. The non-invasive nature of the technology provides large opportunities to the process in the coming years.
