The top right scan shows the fused PET and CT scans with false color added to help interpret the image. The bottom left scan is an initial FDG PET image showing tracer hot spots in the neck and a lymph node in the right jaw due to cancer. The right bottom image is a delayed enhancement scan showing tracer uptake over time, with normal hot spots in the bladder, kidneys, testicles and brain, which normally have higher metabolic activity. The low-grade gray shading of the anatomy is due to the normal cellular metabolism uptake of the FDG throughout the body. 

August 4, 2021 — PET/CT systems are expected to continue to incorporate the highest clinical performance of PET as well as computed tomography (CT), and further evolve in parallel with these modalities for a long period. Constant developments in the radiopharmaceuticals used by PET/CT systems and increased government support for the research and development of these radiopharmaceuticals for medical imaging is expected to propel the PET/CT systems market during the forecast period.

According to the latest research by PMR, the global PET/CT systems market is expected to account for more than 3.0 billion US$ in terms of value, by the end of 2028. The PET/CT systems report also projects a significant growth potential, with an average Y-O-Y growth rate pegged at 6.2% through 2028.

PET/CT Systems Market: Dynamics

High capital investments are expected to be recovered by increased medical efficacy and patient throughput, leading to a decrease in the effective cost per image. According to various research studies, excluding additional costs, the usage of PET/CT systems is cost-efficient as these systems help avoid additional invasive procedures or imaging examinations. According to the president of Clinical Radiologists, Springfield, a new PET/CT systems costs around US$ 2 Million and a high-end CT system costs around $1 Million. It costs around $600,000 – 700,000 less to buy Biograph mCT, as compared to purchasing 2 different high-end systems.

Moreover, the device can be stored in a single room. Furthermore, PET is quite a lengthy procedure that requires transmission as well as emission scans. The fusion image by PET/CT systems was projected to result in time saving for almost about 20-30 minutes per patient, which led to a 40% increase in patient output. According to a research study published by National Center for Biotechnology Information, the U.S., the metastases found in 16% of cancer patients, which was initially deemed resectable, led to cost savings amounting to US$ 1,066 per patient with the usage of PET/CT systems.

PET/CT Systems Market: Segmentation

PMR has segmented the global PET/CT systems market based on the product type, isotopes, modality, applications, end use and region. The PET/CT systems market by product type is segmented into low-range slice PET/CT systems (>20), middle range-slice PET/CT systems (21-64), high-range slice PET/CT systems (<64). By isotopes, the market for PET/CT systems is segmented into Flurodeoxyglucose, 18 F Sodium Fluoride, 62 Cu ATSM, FMISO, Thallium, Gallium, and others. By modality, the PET/CT systems market is segmented into fixed PET/CT systems and mobile PET/CT systems.

By application, the PET/CT systems market is segmented into oncology, cardiology, neurology, and others. By end use, the PET/CT systems market is segmented into hospitals, diagnostic centers, cancer research centers, and specialty clinics. The PET/CT systems market has been analyzed across all the regions of North America, Latin America, Europe, South Asia, East Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East & Africa. 

PET/CT Systems Market: Competition Tracking

The PET/CT systems report tracks some of the key companies operating in the PET/CT systems market, which include Siemens AG; Hitachi, Ltd.; Koninklijke Philips N.V.; Canon, Inc.; General Electric Company; MinFound Medical Systems Co., Ltd.; and Neusoft Corporation.

New recommendations will help provide more reliable, reproducible results for MRI-based measurements of cartilage degeneration in the knee, helping to slow down disease and prevent progression to irreversible osteoarthritis, according to a special report published in the journal Radiology

Knee cartilage compartments with anatomic labels implemented in lateral (left side), central (middle), and medial (right side) MRI obtained with an intermediate weighted fat-saturated fast-spin-echo sequence (top row) and a spin-lattice relaxation time constant in rotating frame (T1r) magnetization-prepared angle-modulated partitioned k-space spoiled gradient echo snapshots sequence (bottom row, T1r maps). Study was performed without administration of intravenous gadolinium-based contrast material. The lateral femur (LF)/medial femur (MF) and lateral tibia (LT)/medial tibia (MT) can be further divided into subcompartments on the basis of meniscus anatomy according to Eckstein et al.
