Global Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Market to Grow at 6.1% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Advancements in Technology

Published on Dec 13, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global positron emission tomography (PET) market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% during 2022-2027. Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine procedure that aids in measuring the metabolic activity of the cells. In this procedure, a tiny amount of radioactive glucose, known as a radiopharmaceutical or radioactive tracer, is used to assist in the examination of tissue. PET scans help to visualize the biochemical changes taking place in the body, such as the metabolism of the heart muscle. They also generate a detailed image of areas containing glucose, which helps in assessing the functions of organs and tissues effectively. Consequently, they are used for evaluating several conditions, such as cancer, heart diseases and brain disorders.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Market Trends:

PET imaging has evolved from an imaging modality used for research to a standard component of diagnosing and staging in oncology and specific neurological and cardiovascular indications. The sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has further increased the use of PET imaging as it supports the development of novel therapeutics and helps in the study of the pathogenesis of SARS-CoV-2, the COVID-19 virus. Furthermore, modern systems have been introduced that utilize gamma camera systems. They can complete a scan more quickly and at a lower cost than a traditional PET scan. With advancements in PET technologies, it is being used in conjunction with other diagnostic tests, such as computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to provide more definitive information about cancerous tumors and lesions.
