Radionuclide Scanning Services Market Is Expected to Witness a Steady Growth by 2017–2025: Persistence Market Research

Radionuclide scanning can be used to visualize images in 2D using Scintigraphy technique as well as in 3D representation using SPECT.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/11/2017 -- Radionuclide scanning also called nuclear medicine imaging is the test that scans internal body parts with the use of radioactive material. This overcomes the limitations of standard X-Ray systems to reach and scan every body part. A radionuclide is used as a label to the substance that accumulates in specific part of the body such as Iodine is used to make thyroid hormones and thus accumulates in the thyroid glands similarly, Diphosphonate accumulates where bone is repairing or rebuilding itself. The tracer is swallowed, inhaled or injected under the skin which emits gamma rays, so the doctors can detect the location of tracer by the use of special scanners or cameras. Highly qualified personnel are required for this process.

Radionuclide scanning can be used to visualize images in 2D using Scintigraphy technique as well as in 3D representation using SPECT. Some of the commonly used radionuclides for the service include Iodine-131, Yttrium-90, Samarium-153, Fluorine-18 and many others.

Radionuclide Scanning Services Market: Drivers & Restraints

With the surge in the nuclear medicine imaging industry, the radionuclide scanning services market is also anticipated to increase during the forecast period. Furthermore, wide applications of the technique, painless diagnosis and in-depth analysis results in increasing the market. In most of the developing and under-developed countries, less popularity of the technique and high cost is the restraining factor for the market to grow in. The harmful effects of the radiations also hinders the growth in the diagnosis services market. Lack of skilled personnel for carrying out the diagnostic practices using radionuclide tracers is also a limiting factor in the market growth.
