In Vivo Imaging Systems Market Segments and Forecast By End-use Industry 2016-2026

In vivo imaging system can be broken down into in vivo which means performed in living organism and imaging systems which means visual representation system. In other words it can be defined as the technique used for biological imaging in order to study the cellular activity and the effects of drugs in various diseases. It can be subdivided into morphological imaging systems and molecular imaging systems.  High-frequency micro-ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) constitute to morphological imaging systems whereas fluorescence, bioluminescence, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) constitute to Molecular Imaging systems. In vivo Imaging systems can be used for both animals and Humans depending upon the purpose of use. Usually in vivo imaging systems are used in research laboratories to study the activity of a drug on the animals like albino mice albino rats etc. These small animal imaging consist of full body scan and targeted scan. Full body scan is popularly followed imaging method as it is economic and hence can be used for commercialization and regular validation of new drugs. Small animal In vivo imaging includes the measurement and classification of molecular level biological process that are used to study the specific targeted drugs. Small animal In vivo imaging consist of micro MRI, micro CT, micro PET, micro SPECT, digital angiography, x-ray imaging and magnetic particle imaging. Human In vivo Imaging systems are used to study the deformity or the disorder caused to the humans that may be disease induced, congenital or trauma induced. The imaging systems used here are similar to that in animals like CT Scan, PET scan, SPECT scan, MRI scan etc.

In vivo Imaging Systems Market: Drivers and Restraints

Technological advancement of imaging systems, rise in the rate of adoption of multi-modality imaging systems in clinical and preclinical research studies, growth in the acceptance of preclinical imaging for drug discovery and development process, growing awareness about the benefits of early disease diagnosis are some of the crucial parameters driving the current Imaging markets.  A number of factors such as high implementation cost of sophisticated clinical and preclinical imaging systems, High cost of maintenance, low life span of accessories used are restricting the growth of the global imaging market.
