Technological Advancements & Rising Eye Disorders Pushing Sales of Optical Coherence Tomography Machines: Fact.MR Analysis

Two Key Factors Influencing The Growth Of The Global Optical Coherence Tomography For Ophthalmology Market Are The Rise In Cancer Cases And The Sizeable Increase In The Geriatric Population. Demand for Optical Coherence Tomography Systems Is Also Being Fueled By an Increase in People Suffering From Eye Illnesses

Seoul, South Korea, Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global optical coherence tomography (OCT) for ophthalmology market is set to enjoy a valuation of US$ 580 million in 2022 and further expand at a CAGR of 6% through 2026, according to the detailed industry analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider.

An advanced method used for high-resolution cross-sectional imaging is optical coherence tomography. Similar to ultrasound imaging, optical coherence tomography is a sort of non-invasive imaging technique. Coherent light is used in this technique to take photographs in both, two and three dimensions. This technique is employed to examine translucent tissues.

Furthermore, this technique is utilized to analyse data from the field of ophthalmology and track the health of the retina. The two main advantages of optical coherence tomography during a biopsy are high-resolution imaging and great penetration depth. Real-time photographs of tissue can be produced using this technology. As a result, it can be applied to ocular biopsy and can lower biopsy-related simple mistakes.
