Advent of Artificial Intelligence Facilitates Improvements in Spinal Imaging



Advent of Artificial Intelligence Facilitates Improvements in Spinal Imaging 1

Future Market Insights, in its recent spinal imaging market report predicts a growth trajectory of over 5% between 2020 and 2030.

Increasing volume of spinal cord surgeries to correct various anomalies is acting as the principal growth driver for the market. Over the years, rapid technological advancements in imaging techniques have played a fundamental role in spinal surgeries. Advancements in genomics have spurred healthcare stakeholders to invest in more targeted treatment. This has greatly helped in reducing surgery time as well as enabled surgeons to determine the precise approach for each patient.

The advent of artificial intelligence based imaging equipment has helped personalize imaging procedures, while 3D-printing has enabled better assessment of treatments. Although in their nascent stage, these technologies have the potential to revolutionize spinal surgical procedures in the future.

Based on these trends, the spinal imaging market shall reach a valuation of US$ 3 Bn by 2030-end.

“Surging spinal cord infections and disorders are pushing manufacturers to incorporate technological breakthroughs in surgical procedures, enabling them to carve a niche for themselves in the market,” says an FMI analyst.
