Report On Medical Imaging Markets: Molecular Imaging

Press Release   •   Oct 05, 2012 11:37 IST

Molecular imaging techniques include nuclear medicine imaging – positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and combination PET/CT and SPECT/CT techniques – as well as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) imaging that are used with molecular imaging agents.
 Molecular imaging has evolved into a pillar of molecular medicine. It combines functional imaging with structural imaging so that specific in-vivo molecular processes can be identified and spatially pinpointed, often with the use of imaging contrast agents that bind to specific biological proteins. Molecular imaging is undertaking diagnostic and treatment roles as it enables physicians to pinpoint the locations of disease and track the progress of therapies. The same contrast agents used to highlight disease sites may even be able to carry drugs that can be selectively unleashed precisely where they are needed.
 Medical Imaging Markets: Molecular Imaging offers complete market coverage of world markets for molecular imaging products for the following technologies:  Business Report

 Market forecasts are based on an examination of current market conditions and on investigations into the development of new products by key companies. The market data provide multiple year forecasts for different product segments covered in the report. The information presented in this report is the result of data gathered from company product literature and other corporate brochures and documents, as well as information found in the scientific and trade press. In addition, interviews were conducted with company executives, clinicians and researchers.
 The general aging of the population continues to build the need for diagnosticimaging services. While the aging population is one trend likely to affect imagingprocedure volumes, the behavioral and lifestyle trends of the world population are alsolikely to increase the need for imaging procedures. One example involves obesity, which is often linked to increased risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and other illnesses. Imaging is well suited to the diagnosis and management of many age-related diseases such as cardiovascular, cancer, inflammatory and neurological diseases. These diseases are becoming increasingly prevalent as the percentage of elderly people in the population rises. In the US, cancer and cardiovascular disease kill nearly 2 million people each year.
