Optical imaging is a medical imaging technology which uses visible light and the special properties of photons to obtain detailed images of organs and tissues as well as smaller structures like cells and molecules. These images are used by scientists for research and by clinicians for diagnosis and treatment. Optical imaging significantly reduces patient exposure to harmful radiation by using non-ionizing radiation which includes visible, ultraviolet and infrared light. The major optical imaging technologies available in the global market and used in various applications such as ophthalmology, dentistry, cardiology and dermatology include optical coherence tomography, hyperspectral imaging, near infrared spectroscopy and
photoacoustic tomography. Higher prevalence of disorders related to different body parts, sedentary lifestyle, aging population, and increasing awareness and adoption of optical imaging devices in diagnostics and research are expected to drive the growth of global optical imaging market during the forecast period.
