Global Nuclear Imaging Market, By Type (Diagnostic and Research), By Diagnostic Method (PET, SPECT,

Published Date: | Report Code : HC1941539


Nuclear Imaging Market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to increase in the number of cancer cases and various cardio-logical ailments. Nuclear medicine imaging is imaging speciality involving the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Nuclear medicine imaging records radiation emitting from within the body. These tests mainly show the physiological function of the system being investigated and are generally more organ-, tissue- or disease-specific.

These procedures are usually non-invasive and are painless medical tests that aid physicians diagnose and evaluate medical conditions. The imaging scans use radioactive materials called radiotracers. These radiotracers are used in diagnosis and therapeutics.
