Global Positron Emission Tomography Market 2012-2016 new research report available at ReportsnReports.com
Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/23/2013 -- The combination of PET with other imaging equipment such as MRI, CT, and X-ray will provide high-resolution images of the physiological and anatomical behavior of the body. This will in turn help to understand the disease in an effective way. Currently, only the top three companies in the market have introduced hybrid systems such as PET/MRI technology, namely, GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare and Philips Healthcare. Siemens Healthcare's Biograph mMR is the most advanced hybrid comprising of a PET/CT that scans the patients once and takes only 30 minutes for imaging and generating the image. This equipment is currently used for clinical research at Massachusetts General Hospital. Currently, PET/MRI scanning is limited to the experimental stage; however, with the development of new tracer molecules and the optimization of PET/MRI procedures, it could boost the use of PET/MRI scanning methods in clinical settings. GE Healthcare is also in the process of developing trimodality scanning equipment consisting of PET/CT/MRI scanning. The trend toward the development of fusion modalities is expected to revolutionize the Global PET market (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/269413-global-positron-emission-tomography-market-2012-2016.html).
Analysts forecast the Global Positron Emission Tomography market to grow at a CAGR of 3.74 percent over the period 2012-2016. According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increase in the aging population. The increase in the aging population has led to a high incidence of diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, and cardiovascular disorders.
