NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a medical diagnostic technique that is usedto examine metabolic activity of the tissue inside the body using a radiotracer that is administered intravenously. PET scanners comprise sensitive detectors that capture gamma ray emissions from inside the body creating 3-D images of the tracer concentrations
Increasing occurrences of chronic disorders and rising penetration of PET machines is expected to drive market growthRising demand for effective diagnostic techniques across the globe, increased Medicare coverage for PET scanning, and expanded applications for PET in the field of oncology are expected to boost the growth of the global Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanners market over the forecast period. The global Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanners market is expected to grow significantly in terms of revenue over the forecast period owing to increasing availability of value based, technologically advanced PET machines especially in developed countries. However, a short half-life and low supply of radiopharmaceuticals is likely to restrict market growth over the forecast period.Introduction of technologically advanced PET scanning machines such as machines exhibiting increased granularity in imaging, greater storage capacity, and increased efficiency with respect to reduction in scanning time are the main factors manufacturers are focussing upon to integrate in their PET scanning machines. Leading manufacturers are expected to invest more on technological advancements and better product designs in order to increase their sales.
