High Demand from the Emerging Countries Due to Non-Invasiveness Procedure Drives the Global Nuclear Medicine/Radiopharmaceuticals Market
Nuclear medicines are the the drugs containing radioactive material (radionuclide-emmitting ionizing radiations)for the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. Radiopharmaceuticals targets the organ or specific site and emits the gamma radiations which are captured by external gamma cameras. However, dose of radiations is kept low to avoid the side effects. These radiopharmaceuticals are administered inside the body by different routes of administration such as oral, inhalation or injection depending on the drug and targeted organ.
