Visible Light Imaging and Operating Room Informatics

Visible Light Imaging and Operating Room Informatics

This study covers the global market for visible light (VL) imaging informatics and operating room (OR) imaging informatics. The latter pertain to digital and integrated operating rooms having intra-operative imaging capabilities, which are driven by increasing adoption of image-guided surgery (IGS) and minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques. The study provides a comprehensive overview of market opportunities for the informatics solutions used to manage, distribute, and archive images and related information in various departments and care settings, as well as an analysis of the dynamic competitive landscape prevailing in this space. The study period is 2014 to 2019, with a base year of 2015.
