Bio-imaging is a branch of science that deals with functional and structural images of living systems. Bio imaging involves the use of different techniques and processes that replicate the images of human anatomical areas and tissues at a molecular level. Medical bio-imaging technologies are used as diagnostic and examination tools for various diseases. Bio Imaging also helps in developing the database of general physiology and the anatomy of living objects for further research studies. Molecular bio-imaging technologies determine the arrangement of biological macromolecules in the body. Bio-imaging also incorporates radiology and the related imaging technologies such as ultrasound, X-ray radiography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) amongst others. Bio-imaging technologies, finds application in disease diagnosis. Advancements in medical and molecular imaging technologies are expected to drive the market in next few years. However, the high cost of bio-imaging instruments is a major restraint for the bio-imaging market.
The Asia Pacific bio-imaging technologies market is segmented based on the type of technology, applications and geography. The technology types are broadly classified into medical bio-imaging technologies and molecular bio-imaging technologies. These technologies are further segmented into segmented into optical Imaging, radiological imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound imaging, nano bio-imaging and others. These bio-imaging technologies use advanced imaging techniques to improve the human health by providing targeted solutions in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases. The Asia Pacific bio-imaging market is segmented into China, Japan, India, Australia and others. The emerging economies across the Asia Pacific such as China and India are the potential markets due to a high prevalence of diseases and improving healthcare systems. Moreover, the presence of a large population and growing medical tourism supplements the growth of the Asia pacific market. Recently, the Australian and Indian national imaging infrastructure organizations, entered into a partnership with Euro-bio imaging to promote the open access to imaging technologies.
