MediPoint: Nuclear Imaging - South America 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

The Brazilian (South American) nuclear imaging market was dominated by GE Healthcare and Siemens Healthcare, which each accounted for 40% of the market share in terms of revenue in 2012, The population in Brazil is both rapidly expanding but also experiencing increases in diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, that are associated with an increased adoption of Western lifestyles. Increased access to cardiovascular imaging facilities will also increase access to SPECT-only systems.
