Hybrid operating room is a surgical theatre equipped with medical imaging system that supports high-quality interventional imaging, and complex open & minimally invasive surgeries. Imaging devices such as CT scanners, mobile X-ray machines, and MRI scanners are used in hybrid operating rooms. Hybrid operating rooms are used primarily in cardiac, vascular, and neurosurgery, but also are suitable for a number of other surgical disciplines – Biopsy, Laparoscopic surgery, Orthopaedic trauma surgery, etc. The imaging unit provides improved accuracy and outcomes, also shorter hospital stays and quick recovery.
Technological advancements in robot assisted surgeries is a key factor driving growth of the global hybrid operating room market. In addition, increasing investment in R&D of advanced surgical equipment, and growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries in developed and developing economies are other factors expected to propel growth of the global hybrid operating room market over the forecast period. Developments in laparoscopic surgery, and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery techniques are also expected to boost demand of hybrid operating room over the forecast period.
However, high installation cost is a major factor restraining growth of the global hybrid operating room market. Additionally, longer deployment time, and lack of skilled workforce are other factors hampering growth of the global hybrid operating room market over the forecast period.
Growing demand for robotic medical systems that offer enhanced haptic sensation abilities, tissue recognition, and real-time diagnostic ability is expected to generate potential opportunities for key players in the global hybrid operating room market to expand their presence.
Why nation-state attacks are everyone’s problem
With so much change all the time, how can executives best prepare their businesses to meet the security challenges of the coming years? CSO Australia, in conjunction with Mimecast, explored this question in an interactive Webinar that looks at how the threat landscape has evolved – and what we can expect in 2019 and beyond.
An interview with CSO's David Braue and Ian Yip, Chief Technology Officer, McAffee.
According to new research conducted by the Ponemon Institute, Australia and New Zealand have the highest levels of data breaches out of the nine countries investigated. This was linked to heavy investment in security detection and an under-investment in security and vulnerability response capabilities
