With the implementation of radiopharmaceuticals, physicians can now target specific organs and tissues to treat anomalies the metabolism of the targeted organs. Radiopharmaceuticals are also used for cancer diagnosis and treatment. Due to a spike in the number of cancer cases reported worldwide, the global radiopharmaceuticals market is expected to witness healthy growth in the upcoming years.

Moreover, radiopharmaceutical therapy enables easy location of tumors and helps monitoring its treatment. It has also facilitated high dosage of drug delivery making hospital stays shorter, thus making nuclear therapies and other cancer therapies less expensive.
