“Cancer survivors are increasingly opting for radio therapy procedures, either for primary management or for symptom control. This rise in embracement of radiotherapy as an effective methodology for diagnosis and management of cancer is substantially spurring sales of fiducial markers”, Senior Analyst, Fact.MR

With the adoption of fiducial markers as a standard tool for image-guided radiotherapy, manufacturers are coming across huge demand. According to a report titled “Radiotherapy in Global Cancer Control” published by the Cancer Control Organization, availability of radiotherapy equipment varied from 8.6 machines per million people in high-income countries (as per the World Bank definition) to 1.6 per million in high-middle income, 0.71 in low-middle income countries, and 0.21 per million in low-income countries. This data reveals the growth scope for fiducial markers over the coming years.
