Image-guided/robot-assisted surgery markets to grow

The U.S. image-guided (IGS) and robot-assisted surgery markets generated revenues of $186.6 million in 2002, and are projected to reach $600.8 million by 2009, according to market research firm Frost & Sullivan. While the field has benefited from expanding applications, industry growth requires a sustained effort to familiarize users with IGS and robot-assisted surgery systems, according to the San Jose, CA-based firm.

While the IGS market for neurological and ENT applications are mature, spinal and orthopedic applications are still growing, Frost said.
