Surgical Imaging: Increased Demands for Integrated Data Management in Medical Devices and Imaging Systems

 Surgical Imaging Market

Surgical imaging is the visualization technique designed for helping surgeons efficiently carry out the different surgical procedures. This imaging technique is based on the different technologies available for imaging such as nuclear imaging, MRI, computed tomography, ultrasound amongst others. This technique is able to help surgeons target the surgical area in a more accurate manner by helping them get visualization that they are not able to attain with the naked eye. This technique generally involves the usage of cameras and display systems for their successful operation.
