Optical imaging has the ability to improve point of care in the healthcare setting since it provides improved screening and detection of disease. The global optimal imaging market is anticipated to attain a valuation of USD 1.92 Bn at a CAGR of 10% over the forecast period of 2018-2023, projects Market Research Future (MRFR) in an extensive study. Driven by critical healthcare needs, optimal imaging is gaining traction as a detector technology. Optimal imaging is a technique where cellular and molecular function in a living body is interrogated with the help of light and the special properties of photons to obtain detailed images of organs and tissues.
