Key Takeaways

  • The process incorporates the visualization of biochemical changes in the body, including the strong metabolism of the heart muscle. These efficient scanners employ a type of nuclear medicine process in order to accurately measure the metabolic activity of the body tissues and cells. It is a combination of nuclear medicine and biochemical analysis. They are mostly used in patients with heart or brain conditions, and cancer.
  • The surging adoption of PET and X-ray transmission computed tomography (CT) scans is expected to propel growth in the market over the upcoming years. This innovative technology is predicted to reduce acquisition time, and provides precise attenuation correction and fusion imaging, resulting in high diagnostic sensitivity and specificity.
  • Furthermore, the combination of PET and CT helps in improving the staging of disease by defining prognostic and treatment monitoring capabilities of the functional and metabolic information given by conventional nuclear imaging techniques.
