“Market Report for PET Imaging in the USA
This report provides information on the current Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner and cyclotron install base in the USA market. Along with the current known number of PET scanners and cyclotrons in the USA, the report also contains a detailed breakdown of this equipment by year of installation, manufacturer, model, specific location and current utilization. The future market utility for the PET scanner and cyclotron market is also estimated to the year 2020.
PET as a modality was introduced into the US market in the early 1980s, but it was not until 1995 when a PET scanner was able to perform a whole body scan that the utility in oncology was realised. The appeal of PET imaging to radiologists and nuclear medics is its ability to provide metabolic information that can be overlaid with a structural CT scan. This makes it the standard of care for staging any patient that has been diagnosed with cancer. This adoption of technology by clinicians has contributed to the establishment and continued growth in the USA in the number of PET scanners and cyclotrons producing the widely used 18F – FDG radiotracer.
