Flouroscopy is an effective medical tool that provides high time real image of a patient using X-ray. It can also be defined as an imaging technique used to view internal structures of the patient using fluoroscope. Fluoroscope consists of X-ray source and fluorescent screen between which a patient is placed. Currently, modern fluoroscopes have been designed that couple the screen with X-ray image intensifiers and camera that allow visualization of image on a monitor.
X-ray image intensifiers allow visibility of low intensity x-rays into visible light. Surgeries are carried out for a long duration thus; it leads to absorbance of high dose of radiations. Usage of X-ray poses a potential risks to the patient’s health due to absorbance of ionizing radiations. Therefore, market is being boosted with the introduction of digital images that possibly reduce the risk of radiation.
The fluoroscopy market is also expected to grow under the influence of rising cases of obesity related diseases such as heart and kidney disorders. Therefore, fluoroscopy is gaining popularity in the treatment of such disorders. Another factor boosting the market growth is the invention of C-arm fluoroscopes, which is an indispensable tool for 2D imaging. C-arm facilitates accurate anatomic localization of implants that can be used in every medical field. More number of surgeons prefer minimally invasive surgeries, C-arm provides a real time image of the internal organs and high visualization guidance during surgery.
The market is also characterized by the technological advancements with key players engaged in development of cost-effective and innovative products. One of the recent advancements is the development of fully digital technology with flat detectors. This new flat detector technology has several advantages such as excellent image quality with low X-ray dose, sharper images and fewer distortions. In addition, fluoroscopy technique is also cost effective when compared to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans.
The fluoroscopy and mobile C-arm market is highly competitive and is principally driven by technological advancements and increasing number of minimally invasive surgeries. The major players engaged in the market are GE Healthcare, OrthoScan, Inc., Philips Healthcare, Siemens Medical Solutions, Hologic, Inc. and others.
