MediPoint: Nuclear Imaging - US Analysis and Market Forecasts

Summary

This report examines how new technologies can emerge in the face of economic pressures that may affect the demand for nuclear imaging, and how healthcare reforms are impacting nuclear medicine. The advent of hybrid imaging has enabled PET/CT imaging to undergo explosive growth. However, this has been at the cost of an increased demand on struggling healthcare budgets. PET and SPECT imaging are well established techniques within nuclear imaging, and are the main focus of this report PET imaging uses Positron Emitting radioactive tracers with a short half life, to image metabolically active organs PET combined with CT allows precise anatomical imaging of the body, identifying diseased areas depending upon the tracer used PET/CT is most often used for cancer diagnosis PET/MRI is a new technique that was introduced to reduce patient exposure to radiation PET only systems are now generally considered obsolete, due to the superior imaging quality of PET/CT

PET/MRI is expected to remain a nascent segment in the US nuclear imaging market, far behind well-established and generally well regarded PET/CT scanners. No replacement sales are expected during the forecast period, and the volume of systems sold (only one per year) is expected to remain low, due to physician skepticism of the clinical validity of this hybrid modality.
