Medical Devices and Imaging
TechVision’s Medical Device and Imaging (MDI) technology cluster profiles technology innovations, tracks emerging trends and practices across the many segments within the MedTech market. Specifically, the MDI group captures technological advances associated with medical devices, clinical diagnostics, medical imaging, patient monitoring, surgical techniques and health information technology..
What sets the MDI group apart from other innovation profilers
The analysis is founded on strong primary research, during which the analysts directly interact with innovators and executives. This interaction helps MDI keep abreast of market developments, trends, and opportunities, and proves to be invaluable while providing clients with the right mix of technical and strategic intelligence.
While the industry interaction certainly includes the Tier 1 companies and the Movers and Shakers of the healthcare market, MDI also digs deep and take notice of pre-commercialization technologies. Conversations with academia laboratories and research organizations give MDI the vantage of looking at what the industry can be, rather than merely what it is.
Given the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of the healthcare industry, MDI’s technology radar is attuned to picking up innovations in medical device technologies, as well as innovations in enabling platforms such as biosensors, biomaterials, micro- and nanotechnologies, wireless communications, analytics tools and so on.
Medical Devices and Imaging has undertaken several customized research and advisory engagements for MedTech companies, technology developers, research institutes and various other stakeholders. The MDI cluster works closely with analysts and consultants from adjacent technology groups to provide clients with comprehensive advisory services.
