(PharmaNewsWire.Com, October 12, 2017 ) The North America Nuclear Imaging Market was worth $2.70 billion in 2016 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 8.64%, to reach $4.09 billion by 2021. Medical imaging is the method of making a visual image of the inside of the body for medical intervention. These devices aid in creating a databank of normal anatomy and physiology of internal organs so that any irregularity can be observed immediately.
Nuclear imaging is most commonly utilized for cardiovascular and oncology applications. It refers to the method of generating visuals of the organs of the body by processing minor quantity of radioactive tracers. The images are obtained using a gamma camera and can be documented on film or on a computer.
The growth of the North America Nuclear Imaging market is mainly due to factors such as an increase in the number of cancer and cardiovascular disease cases, and predilection towards minimally invasive procedures, ready availability of radiopharmaceuticals. However, factors such as costly procedures & equipment, shortage of supplies, and logistical difficulties are hampering the growth of the market in this region.
The North America Nuclear Imaging market is segmented based on Diagnostic Technologies and Application. The market for Nuclear Imaging, on the basis of Diagnostic Technologies is segmented into PET Radioisotopes and SPECT Radioisotopes. PET Radioisotopes are further segmented into Rubidium-82, Fluorine-18, whereas SPECT Radioisotopes are further segmented into Thallium-201, Technetium-99m, Xenon-133, and Iodine-123.
