1. U.S. Optical Imaging Technologies to Benefit from Technical Advances and Rising Uptake in Certain Application Areas Says Frost & Sullivan

    The use of optical technologies in clinics is currently limited due to restricted availability of validated data and low end-user awareness. However, technological advances, along with manufacturers' emphasis on promoting end-user education, are likely to result in some optical technologies, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fluorescence spectroscopy, gaining market presence in certain applications such as ophthalmology, dentistry, and cancer screening over the next five to ten years.

    1. Optics-based technologies have the potential to improve the accuracy of pathological diagnosis and expedite the process of drug discovery.
    2. Many alternative technologies such as mechanical devices, digital radiography, and fluorescence-based devices have a strong presence in the dental OCT market, making manufacturers reluctant to invest heavily in the development of new optical methods for dental applications.
