Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an imagining technique that incorporates the reflection of light to generate the image of the interior parts of the body that require imagining. Cardiovascular OCT imaging produces 2-dimensional cross-section interpretations as the infrared light source used in cardiovascular OCT imaging handles very high bandwidths, which help display clearer results. Cardiovascular OCT imaging primarily assists in operative procedures and helps locate blockages as well as find pathways for insertions. Cardiovascular OCT imaging facilitates a clearer and accurate diagnosis of various conditions. Moreover, cardiovascular OCT imaging helps minimise the risk of interference in the organs surrounding the heart with the use of an imaging tube that is passed into the organ.
Cardiovascular OCT Imaging Market: Drivers and Restraints
Some of the major factors driving the cardiovascular OCT imaging market are the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular disease owing to unhealthy food habits and the growing burden of coronary heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular diseases result in the death of approximately 15-21% of patients, of which about 31% to 42% of people are affected by coronary heart disease. The continuously growing incidence of diabetes is fuelling the demand for cardiovascular OCT imaging.
Moreover, the growing applications of OCT in generalised imagining techniques is also expected to boost the adoption of cardiovascular OCT imaging techniques, which is consequently increasing the demand for cardiovascular OCT imaging. Furthermore, increase in the number of research and clinical trials in imaging techniques is also boosting the interest of investors and entrepreneurs in the development of new devices and techniques, thus fuelling the demand for advanced cardiovascular OCT imaging techniques. However, stringent regulatory guidelines regarding the devices used in cardiovascular OCT imaging, coupled with limited awareness about cardiac-specific OCT, is estimated to restrain the growth of the cardiovascular OCT imaging market.
