2017 Image Guidance and Navigation Technologies for Robotic Surgery - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Image Guidance and Navigation Technologies for Robotic Surgery" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

This research service sheds light on the ultrasound technology landscape, key business and technology considerations that are aiding and hampering market adoption, areas that present opportunities for growth and research activity in this area.

The importance of medical imaging has expanded beyond just diagnoses. Increasingly, more imaging modalities are being integrated into therapy systems, and as guidance tools during surgical procedures. TechVision's latest research service from the medical imaging technology cluster highlights the emerging trends and innovations in use of medical imaging for guidance and navigation during surgical procedures and treatments. Two broad application areas have been delineated: image-guide surgery (IGS) and image-guided therapy (IGT).

IGS and IGT use medical imaging tools such as x-ray radiology, ultrasound imaging and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in guiding the surgeon and the robotic system during surgical procedures. IGS initially found acceptance because it provides guidance to surgeons, which increases precision and accuracy. However, with the advent of surgical robots, it has become a pre-requisite since navigation of tools during minimally-invasive surgeries require real-time visualization.
