The handheld medical body scanner devices are used in diagnosing primary illnesses as well as choric diseases. The devices include three basic components: a near-infrared light source and an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) system, a video camera to relay real-time images of surface features, and scan locations micro-electro mechanical (MEMS) based scanner to direct the light. The near-infrared wavelengths of light penetrate deeper into human tissues than other wavelengths more readily absorbed by the body. By measuring the time it takes the light to bounce back from tissue microstructure, computer algorithms build a picture of the structure of tissue under examination. This is detailed enough to spot the first signs of tumors in specific cells and is about 100 times higher resolution than what X-Ray, computed tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines can provide. According to researchers say that this device was designed to be used by medical professionals who do not specialize in imaging or pathology, allowing them to scan patients using the new device in clinics or at the bedside. Patients would not face the inconvenience of waiting for MRI or CT scanner availability and requiring attendance at a specialized facility.


The handheld medical body scanner market has shown a significant evolution over the forecast period. The key driving factors include the rising rate of non-communicable diseases and the growing aging population. Diabetic patients, especially, may benefit from the device. About 40 to 45 percent of people with diabetes develop leaky blood vessels in their retinas (retinopathy), leading to thickening of the retina, blurry vision, and eventually blindness. The handheld OCT device would allow doctors to monitor the health of the retina, potentially catching retinopathy in its early stages. Also, the advanced technology used in these devices provides high resolution and makes it easier for the physician to diagnose the disease. Handheld medical body scanner devices are mainly for primary care physicians, which are front-lines of diagnosing illnesses, lacking access to diagnostic equipment, thus fuelling the growth of this market. The doctors might be able to use the device to precisely identify diseases as they develop at the cellular level, in real-time, and in high resolution. However, the high cost of these scanners is likely to hamper the market growth. Multiple types of research regarding the handheld medical body scanner are emerging. For instance, Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a handheld medical imaging device that can produce images down to resolutions of 1-2 micrometers. They use the technology of micro-OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) on their device. Its potential ability to spot the first signs of cancers of the colon, stomach and skin, which begin in the nuclei of epithelial cells measuring about 1-2 micrometers.
