Computer-Assisted Surgical Systems Market Expected to Exceed $2.0 Billion by 2010

July 24, 2007 – According to a new report by Global Industry Analysts Inc., the world Computer-Assisted Surgical Systems market is projected to exceed the $2 billion mark by 2010. The U.S. market is likely to remain the largest and fastest growing market for CAS systems, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world.
Forecasters base their predictions on several factors: the growing number of older people, increasing use of imaging procedures being prescribed by physicians, and significant increase in outpatient surgical procedures.

According to the report, surgeons are increasingly using CAS technologies to perform critical and very delicate surgical procedures. CAS technologies and devices such as robotics, remote imaging, feedback, and data processing act as an extension to surgeon's eye and hands, but the systems are never a substitute for a surgeon’s judgment or experience.
